To our much appreciated vendor partners, flea-market sellers, and attendees:
It is with great sadness and regret that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Nutmeg Hamfest and Connecticut State ARRL Convention.
This would have been the Twenty-Eighth edition of Southern New England’s Biggest and Best Hamfest.
Given the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we feel it will be impossible for us to present the First-Class event that you deserve and expect.
We’re fully confident that we’ll be back in 2021 with our biggest and best Nutfest ever.
Thanks, once again, for your past support and 73,
