NEAR-FEST XXX is ON! We are looking forward to seeing all our friends, new and old, after a very long two-year absence at Deerfield at 0900 on Friday October 15th.
Although there are no state or local mandates we want everybody to feel safe at NEAR-Fest. We are asking all attendees to bring their own masks and hand sanitizer. PLEASE respect the wishes of others and wear a mask when inside any of our buildings and observe a 10’ or 2m distance from others whenever possible. We also request that you don your mask when interacting with any member of our staff, inside or outside. They have expressed their concerns. Remember if we didn’t have them we could not do NEAR-Fest! Kindly honor their wishes.
Tickets will be on sale at the gate. Admission is $15 per person and $10 for inside parking which includes flea market selling space. You can save $5 on your admission tickets if you buy them in advance. They are available BY MAIL (do not mail later than Monday October 5th)Mail to NEAR-Fest, 316 Atlantic Avenue, Marblehead MA 01945, checks or amo payable to NEAR-Fest and a self-addressed stamped envelope. Also available in person at Ham Radio Outlet in Salem NH and at Ross W1EKG’s clock shop, 40 Walnut Street in Whitman MA.
We look forward to our “Grand Homecoming”. It has been a very long two years.
