A LUGFest is an opportunity for Linux users to demo Linux (or other Open Source operating systems), Linux applications, attend seminars, and BOF (Birds Of a Feather) sessions. Additionally, Linux vendors may participate and show off their wares.

LUGFest III was held on October 28, 2000, and was a great success.
(See 2000-LUGFest3).
Approximately 350 Linux enthusiasts and a number of vendors attended over the course of the afternoon.

We had people come from Orange County, Santa Barbara, Santa Clarita, the South Bay area, all points in between, and also from out-of-state. Many Linux vendors donated stuff for giveways and raffles. Vendors who came with their wares were VA Linux, SGI, LinuxCare, LinuxBoxen, Mandrake, Parasoft, VMware, Cobolt, LinuxSolve, Corel, Loki Games, Cosmo Engineering and

If you have a special skill with Linux or a Linux application, or if you're a Linux vendor who would like to show off his products, SCLUG would love to have you participate in LUGFest IV! SCLUG is also looking for speakers on Linux, Open Source, or other related subjects.

Due to the continually growing attendance from LUGFest to LUGFest, we've changed the LUGFest to a two-afternoon event so more people can attend.
