Expected Changes for BoBfest 2021



We will have BoBfest T-shirts available for pre-order and sale during BoBfest

When you check in at BoBfest, this year you will receive a booklet with all needed information, instead of a packet of paperwork.

The afternoon sessions will be designated as Children, Beginner, General, or Advanced, but you are free to attend any sessions!

We are encouraging and inviting more small vendors to the Marketplace.

We regret that Frank Westmoreland and his Astronomical Simulations will be unable to attend this year.

Solar Observing outdoors will begin at Lunch instead of all morning

This year we will be able to take credit and debit cards for T-shirt and Door Prize Ticket Sales!

We are sad to report that Grouchos Deli has closed. Watch for new food options soon

There will NOT be observing Friday evening at Lucile Miller Observatory this year. We have too many scheduling conflicts. Join us Saturday at 7pm after BoBfest!
