The 2014 Jerseyfest Model Kit & Statue Fair will be held from August 1st to the 3rd in 2014 at the Marriott Hanover Hotel in Whippany, New Jersey.
We sold out of vendor tables at our last show with over 115, and are expecting a significant increase in vendors and attendees at the 2014 show. The success and growth spurt from our last show has allowed us to upgrade to a four star rated Marriott hotel in a great location, not far from Newark Airport.

Once again we are putting on a big show that will appeal to a diverse audience of modelers and collectors who are into figures/statues, vehicles, mecha, props, etc. and various scales from miniatures to life-sized. Our model contest will once again be spectacular with phenomenal trophies and prizes (350 entries at the last show). In the coming months, we will be announcing our special guest artists and information about presentations occurring during the vendor show on Saturday and Sunday. We also have some new activities and surprises for this year that we are not ready to announce yet - so stay tuned!
The show will once again kick off with “Jerseyfest Academy” all day classes on the Friday before the vendor show (i.e., August 1st). They will be mostly “hands on” classes featuring instruction by elite artists on painting, sculpting and constructing figure and vehicle model kits. See the latest info on the Academy here: http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=47
We have a talented team working together to make the 2014 show extra special. Many people from all over the USA and international locations will be attending. The kits/statues and presentations combined with the overall social experience all day and night will make for a great weekend of complete hobby bliss. Much more info to come folks !
