    Default 2021 DC Show Info

    Taken from the email I received today from Barbara Johnson (Co-Coordinator of the DC Pen Show)
    She also informed me of the passing of Bob Johnson (Brother) over weekend
    (Bob founded the Show nearly 30 years ago- the 2021 Show will be the 30th Annual Show)

    "Dear Pen Community,




    We were disappointed with the necessity of canceling the 2020 SUPERSHOW due to the pandemic. BUT in anticipation of the world wide health crisis being under control in 2021, we have scheduled the 30th anniversary of the SUPERSHOW for August 5 - 8, 2021, at the same location, the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church, Virginia. We will hold a special celebration to honor Bob at that time.


    We will shortly be updating the DC Fountain Pen SUPERSHOW website and encourage you to register as soon as possible to reserve your table for the 2021 SUPERSHOW. We look forward to seeing you at the SUPERSHOW.


    Please discontinue using Bob's Pencentral website and email, cell phone number, and South Carolina address.


    Current contact information for the SUPERSHOW:
    Website: www.dcpenshow.com
    Email: info@dcpenshow.com
    Address: PO Box 5021, Falls Church, VA 22044
    Phone #: 703-214-8148


    Thank you for all of your past support of Bob and the SUPERSHOW,


    Barbara Johnson, Bob's sister
    Jeff Hancock. Bob's nephew"

    Very sad. I received the same email from Barbara, Bob's sister. She helped Bob with the show for quite a few years. Bob ran the world's largest pen show for nearly 30 years. He will be missed.

    The site has been updated- the show is A GO!
    Will be held August 6-8 at the same location as in 2019!
    We will be in the Small Ballroom(Ink Table/Pen Maker's Room), as in prior years!

    Looking forward to seeing Pen Pals In August!

    I'm thinking of attending this, it will be my first pen show
    I live in south central PA, not a bad drive. What should I anticipate as far as DC traffic goes? I'm no good at city driving lol. But I'd really like to meet some more people here!

    I attended the DC show for the first time in 2019 and loved it, really hope to get there this year! Hope the CA show next Feb restarts, at least I can drive there.
