The Commonwealth Pen Show is back! Sunday, September 12, 2021, 9.00 am - 5.00 pm, at the Holiday Inn Bunker Hill, 30 Washington Street, Somerville, MA. This year, with expanded space, we expect to have some 30 exhibitors offering vintage and modern pens, inks, paper, and ephemera!
Now for the fine print ...
Please note that for everyone's protection, there will be strict COVID-19 protocols in place at this year's show. Mask wearing is required at all times within the venue! By order of the City of Somerville, a mask covering the nose and mouth is required of everyone aged 2 years and older while on the premises. Persons unable to wear a mask for medical or religious reasons must present official documentation at the admissions table before entry. Violators are subject to a City-imposed fine of $300. The Commonwealth Pen Show will not be liable for the fine.
