  Supporting New England Philately
  [ HOME ]



The Northeastern Federation provides a forum for the dissemination of philatelic information of importance to the New England area. We do this by providing a centralized list of stamp clubs and exhibitions. We also stage Philatelic Show every spring and support a youth program. Club application here. Bylaws listed here.


Philatelic Show is the largest annual show in New England and is part of the World Series of Philately, as defined by the American Philatelic Society. Philatelic Show 2016 took place on May 6 to 8, 2016 at the Boxborough Holiday Inn in Boxborough, MA. Palmares listed here.


This year's Fall River Stamp Show will be held Saturday, August 20 at the Fall River Elks Clubs at 4500 North Main Street, Fall River, MA. Take Airport Road Exit 8A off of Rt.24, at rotary, turn toward the right, Elks Lodge is immediately on the left. Free admission and parking. Show hours will be 10AM to 5PM. This year's show will feature a dealer bourse, 10+ dealers, appraisal table, and the US Postal Service (cancelling our show cover). Stamp Auction in afternoon.

This program is designed to initiate youth to the hobby of stamp collecting, with the objective of increasing their awareness of the many countries of the world, their cultures and history. It is a favorite of home schoolers, as well as in-schoolers. For more information click here.


On February 12, 2015 the Board of Directors of the American Philatelic Society awarded the Twelfth International Philatelic Exhibition of the United States, to be held in 2026, to Boston. This is the culmination of four years of work by the Northeastern Federation of Stamp Clubs. For more information read the Linn's Stamp News article here.
