April 25+26, 2020
The 7th annual N Scale gathering at the Atlantic Co 4H Fairgrounds, Egg Harbor NJ.  ADMISSION IS FREE!
N-Scale hobbyists from all over are invited to come on out with their own trains and spend the weekend running trains on the many N-scale layouts that are set up for this event.
Admission is FREE to everyone and we always encourage folks who have their own N-Scale trains to bring them along to run.
There are also a number of dealers selling a variety of new and used N-scale models, plus track, scenery, detail parts, and DCC control items too!

I have been told this is now postponed.  Very disappointed but not surprised due to the situation we are all facing.

No word when it will be postponed to.

To prevent the spread of coronavirus, all in-person Atlantic County 4H activities are suspended until further notice. The Atlantic Co 4H, Atlantic Co 4H Model Railroad Club and NJ Southern Ntrak have agreed to postpone the 2020 N Scale Gathering. The event will NOT take place as planned in April. The organizers are exploring the possibility of a fall date for the event. Stay tuned to the New Jersey Southern facebook page through the spring and summer for more information.

I heard a rumor that they have a tentative date of Oct. 10/11, 2020 as a reschedule?  Can anyone confirm as I want to start booking hotels.  :D

@MK The early word, the 4H fairground is ours that weekend. Rutgers 4H cooperative extension has the right to cancel any events.  All Atlantic County 4H events through August are already cancelled.

Atlantic City N Scale Gathering 2020 has officially been cancelled. Due to the owners of the building not allowing in-person meetings to take place until January 1, 2021, we cannot have N Scale Gathering this year. We will keep you updated for N Scale Gathering 2021, which will happen (tentatively) on April 24-25, 2021. Thank you for understanding.
