KFest Events

KansasFest 2018:

July 17-22, 2018

KansasFest is the world’s only annual convention dedicated to the Apple II computer that revolutionized the personal computing industry. Held every year in Kansas City, Missouri, KansasFest invites hobbyists, retrocomputing enthusiasts, and diehard aficionados to gather from all corners of the world. Hackers, programmers, users, gamers, and curious observers come from Hawaii, Massachusetts, Florida, England, Australia, Japan, and many other places by plane, train, bicycle, and Vespa.

KansasFest is about a computer and a camaraderie unlike anything else. The Apple II attracts people of a certain mindset and spirit who exhibit a rare creativity, resilience, dedication, history, and nonconformity. The Apple II has lasted for more than 30 years, and the friendships and memories made at KansasFest will last even longer.

Over the years, the Big Cheese Cindy Adams, asked me to design several of the KFest logos that were used on the KFest tee-shirts and other KFest material.

These are the logos I designed for the 1999 to 2003 KFests:
