CoCoFEST! History

Back in 1983, Rainbow, the Color Computer magazine took a road trip from Prospect Kentucky to the windy city of Chicago. For 9 years, Lonnie Falk’s gang made the trek to create the Chicago RainbowFEST and bring 1,000's of CoCo users together in celebration.

At the 1991 RainbowFest Lonnie announced that this would be "The Last Chicago Fest". The Glenside Color Computer Club said that we should have one more FEST so good friends could have one last celebration. So in 1992 group members Dave and Nancy Myers of CoCoPRO! put together and sponsored The First Annual "Last Chicago CoCoFEST!" and to everyone's surprise, it was a hit.

What else could the group do but hold another show and call it “The Second Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST!“

So, here we are (more than two decades later) with the 28th Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST! - Over two times the number of shows that Rainbow Magazine presented in Chicago.

Welcome to the computer show that just wouldn't die! And why should it? It’s a celebration!

The dates of the next event are May 4 & 5, 2019. The show this year begins at 9 AM.
