Welcome to the website of the Glenside Color Computer Club, the group that has put on the Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST! for the past 28 years.

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 our group do but hold another show and call it "The Second Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST!"

So, here we are nearly, three decades later, with the 29th Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST!, three times the number of shows that Rainbow Magazine presented in Chicago.

The dates of our next event are April 18 & 19, 2020 at:

Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village, Illinois
1000 Busse Road
Elk Grove Village, IL 60007

Pre-registration is encouraged to avoid long lines Saturday morning. The show this year begins at 9 AM.
