Due to worsening public health conditions, we are disappointed to announce
that the October 2021 Swapfest will also be cancelled. The MIT Radio Society
continues to remain committed to bringing back the event next season, in 2022.
Anticipated dates are available below. Please stay tuned for updates and do
not send in preregistrations until our opening schedule is known. Thank you.

Due to delays beyond our control in obtaining the necessary permissions, it is
with great regret that we announce that the September 2021 Swapfest is
cancelled. We are continuing to work as hard as possible to bring back the event.
Please stay tuned for updates and do not send in preregistrations until our
opening schedule is known. Thank you.

Despite the recent relaxation in Covid-19 restrictions by Governor Baker,
the club is still limited by MIT policies regarding events, visitors, and
student group activities. We are closely monitoring the situation and will
update this page once we have further information. We sincerely appreciate
your continued interest and patience and hope that we will be able to
safely resume hosting Swapfest soon. Please do not send in preregistrations
until our opening schedule is known.

While we are still hoping to be able to resume holding the Swapfest
event you all know and love this season, MIT has not yet announced its
plans for allowing large events to return to campus. As a result,
Swapfest will not take place until at least the summer, and we encourage
you to continue to check this page periodically for updates - as soon
as we know when we'll be able to reopen Swapfest, an announcement will
be posted here. Please do not send in preregistrations until our
opening schedule is known.

As MIT has announced that only seniors will be back on-campus with heavy restrictions in place,
we have determined that we won't be able to hold Swapfest without excessive risk for the rest
of the calendar year. Swapfest will (tentatively) pick back up on April 18 of next year, and anyone
who submitted preregistration should have either recently received an email or will shortly receive
postal mail returning their payment.

As Massachusetts is only in the first phase of its reopening plan, with
large events still not allowed for at least several more weeks, and as
MIT has not yet decided when groups may resume holding activities on
campus, we're sorry to say that the June 21, 2020 and July 19, 2020
Swapfest meets are also cancelled.

Under new rules from MIT's Association of Student Activities, no
student-organized events may be held for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. Therefore,
the May 17, 2020 Swapfest is also cancelled.

Due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, new MIT policies prohibit the hosting of
large public events until May 15. Therefore, we regret to inform the Swapfest community
that the April 19, 2020 event is cancelled. Vendors who have purchased
space for April's flea (including season pass holders) are eligible for a refund or
credit towards a future event. Vendors may contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
