LATEST NEAF NEWS

Welcome to the official NEAF website where you can keep up with everything NEAF!

A special message from the NEAF Team:

The past three years have been trying times for everybody and certainly not any less for those of us here at NEAF and Rockland Astronomy.  Postponing shows has been heartbreaking for our team as well as for our patrons and exhibiters. With those decisions governed by state and county regulations as well as the economic risks in a pandemic environment and the concern to keep everybody safe and healthy, there was little recourse in the postponements.  However, as we move beyond those times, we here at NEAF & RAC have been working extremely hard this past year to reassemble our professional team of show experts and bring NEAF back to all its pre-pandemic glory.  As a result, Rockland Astronomy is proud to announce our 32nd annual blockbuster event, the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF), taking place LIVE at the convenient SUNY Rockland Community College campus in Suffern, NY on Saturday April 15th, and Sunday April 16th, 2023.

If you have purchased booth space or admission tickets to either the 2020, 2021 or 2022 show, your purchases will be honored at the 2023 show.  Ticket receipts are not required at the box office, we will confirm you electronically.
