NESFA events are highlighted like this. Non-NESFA events at the clubhouse are highlighted like this. Extraordinary and exceptional events, dates, and reminders are highlighted like this.

Please report any errors and any relevant events which are not listed but are in or near New England or otherwise of interest to NESFA members to calendar@nesfa.org.

Note that, as of this time, most events at the NESFA Clubhouse are "mask optional". Some events, especially some Game Days and Dr. Who events, are "mask required". Any "mask required" events will say so in their listing.

Game and Video days, as well as Wednesday evenings at the Clubhouse, have resumed being in-person. For now, NESFA and Boskone Business Meetings will remain via Zoom.

In addition to the activities listed here, some NESFA members gather at the clubhouse almost every Wednesday evening to work, socialize, and play games (often Dominion). The building is almost always open between 6 pm and 9 pm on Wednesday evenings and often later.  When the weather is inclement, please call 617-625-2311 to make sure that there are people at the clubhouse before showing up.
