    Does anyone have any updates of upcoming events that are cancelled? Pintastic New England is June 25th. Is it cancelled? Will events in Sept on be cancelled? All speculation I guess but any insight would be helpful.

    Best keep an eye on each events website and Facebook page for updates.

    I kind of wonder if there will be any shows this year. I know TPF is planning 2021 the end of next March.

    I believe they posted on FB a week ago that an announcement as to the status would be coming soon. I have no idea how they would pull off a convention in 2 months when MA is still in lockdown mode and what the appetite would even be for hundreds of people to crowd around together and all be touching pinball machines. It's a shame as I really enjoy going but if it is officially cancelled I'm sure they'll be back better than ever next year

    Please be patient! Whatever happens with Pintastic New England, we will want to keep all our loyal supporters happy (hard to do, I know), and preserve our ability to have shows in the future. The pinballnews.com "Diary" listing is maintaining a calendar and putting up cancellations and postponements as they get them. We are hearing lots of support from pinball collectors/owners so far, and we want their continued support.

    OK, here is the scoop:
    The 2020 edition of the Pintastic New England show has been cancelled. The show will return in 2021. Discussion of the 2021 show is over here:
    Of course, we will continue to monitor the worldwide pandemic situation and make appropriate adjustments.

    Real bummer I have been waiting on ordering some things until after the show. Well I guess its time to get my list together.

    Get your list together - get it all together,
    and put it in a backpack, all your list so it's together.
    And if you gotta take it somewhere, you know,
    take it to the list store and sell it, or put it in the list museum.
    I don't care what you do, you just gotta get it together.
    Get your list together.

    The force majeure is coming...return to your homes!
    Their 2021 date is later in the summer.

    shame, This is the only event my son and I really enjoy all year. I live right near pintastic and would get a hotel anyway we like it so much so we can spend more time at the event.

    I'm sorry you'll miss it this year.

    Hopefully you can have twice as much fun next year, to try and make up for it.
