Bring out your gear, set it up, and we can all enjoy each other’s hacks, machines, etc. This is also a good time to lay out your wares for sale.

Invitations to our exhibit hall & vendor fair

Posted Sun, Jul. 15th 2012 in News

The KansasFest exhibit hall makes its second annual appearance this week! All attendees of this year’s Apple II expo are invited to showcase their coolest or most unusual hardware or software, whether it’s for display purposes only, for hands-on demos, for for sale and trade. You’ll be alongside a variety of merchants hawking their wares at the annual vendor fair. Both sessions are held concurrently in Corcoran Hall on Saturday, July 21, 3:15 – 5:30 PM CDT.

These two events are the only sessions open to the general public. That’s right: if you’re in the Kansas City area and have anything from a passing interest in to a longtime passion for the Apple II, you’re invited to visit our event! Be a part of our community, check out our goods, and go home with a few new toys

Corcoran Hall is locked to non-attendees. A student should be available to let you in, but to be sure, please let us know you’re coming, and we’ll give you a contact phone number to ensure your access to our event.

We look forward to seeing you!

Exhibiting at the vendor fair

Posted Mon, Apr. 18th 2011 in News

A mainstay of KansasFest is the vendor fair, in which members of the Apple II community buy, sell, swap, and trade hardware, software, and publications. Despite its name, you don’t need to be a vendor to participate: many attendees come bearing monitors, floppy disks, and magazines looking for a good home. Whether you’re intending to be profitable or altruistic, the vendor fair has a spot for you.


Have something cool to show off? Bring it to the exhibit hall!

This year, the appeal of the vendor fair will be expanded even further by including an exhibit hall. This is the chance for you to bring out the hardware that’s been sitting in your dorm room all week and give other attendees a look at what you have under the hood. Whether it’s an Apple III, a HackFest entry, or an AppleCrate, all attendees are invited to show off their newest, rarest, or coolest hardware or software and let other Apple II users play with your setup.

Want to participate in the fair or exhibit hall? Indicate your interest when registering, or drop us a line! The event is held Saturday afternoon and is open to the public for viewing and purchasing.
