Atari Party 2016


Atari Party is an annual retrogaming & classic computing exhibit, typically held in Davis, California. Each year, volunteers set up video game systems, computers, and even sometimes arcade cabinets, for the public to come and enjoy.

This year we'll have lots of Atari 2600/VCS Atari 5200, Atari 7800, and Atari Jaguar home video game consoles, Atari Lynx handheld game systems, and Atari 8-bit and Atari ST personal computers.

There'll be one or two full-sized arcade cabinets, as well: Centipede and (maybe) Missile Command!

We'll also have some other Atari consumer products, including Atari Video Music and Super Pong consoles, home versions of Stunt Cycle and Touch Me, and an Atari Portfolio handheld computer!

Finally, there will also be some non-Atari systems running Atari games — an Apple II home computer, and various other game systems: Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and GameBoy Advance, Sega Genesis, and Sony PlayStation and PlayStation 2.

Also, since we're in Northern California, not far from Atari's old headquarters, don't be surprised if you bump into some Atari alumni!
