The Sturbridge Host Hotel and Conference Center is known by many to hold various shows over the years. It is a lovely facility with ample space in a great part of town, with security, hotel, restaurants, and free parking nearby.

The Display Award program is a wonderful feature of the show, with various collectors & exhibitors sharing their love of history through their personal collections.  Judges look at and score each display based on several variables – rarity, educational value, and more. 

If you’d like to participate in the display program, please contact us as soon as possible at email address: hartfordshow@gmail.com. All Displays must be received before 30 days of the show.

The club focuses on history and sharing it with interested individuals.  It is the goal and hope that the NEAAS efforts will breathe some life back into the collecting market and recreate the interest in collecting Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II items and other areas of military interest once again.
