S-FEST 2021




To All Fall S Fest Enthusiasts:

2020 was an unprecedented year for all of us throughout the United Stated, and the world. Many lost friends and relatives due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Model railroaders were certainly not immune. Many businesses and events suffered, not only physically but financially. Across the entire country a multitude of model railroad events were canceled. Unfortunately, the string of 44 consecutive Fall S Fests was broken.

All of the participating clubs incur a considerable expenditure to stage these annual conventions. Many would be surprised with the total amount of capital necessary to be a sponsor. Needless to say most clubs make a minimal profit, including the Badgerland S Gaugers. This year a considerable effort was made to keep the cost down for attendees, to make this Fall S Fest as affordable as possible.

With that being said, approximately 750 packets were sent out for the originally scheduled 2020 Fall S Fest. Postage and printing is one of our primary costs. BSG is attempting to avoid a duplication of this undertaking for 2021. With technology, as it is today, many companies resort to the internet to reduce costs. It seems that everything from registering your new appliance to attending events can be done through those means.

All of the 2021 information sheets, schedules, registration sheets and car order forms can then be downloaded from our site, printed and filled out. This will allow BSG to mail out a minimal amount the packets. BSG will not pass along your email address for any purpose other than Fall S Fest use.

We would greatly appreciate your cooperation on this matter. Also if you know of any other individuals that might be interested in attending, please pass along this information.

For those individuals that plan on booking rooms at The Four Points by Sheraton Airport for the 2021 Fall S Fest, the front desk will begin to accept registrations for the event on December 1, 2020.  The Four Points Hotel stated that room reservations have to be made prior to October 9th in order to "guaranty" room availability and the special FSF room rate.

Call the hotel directly at (414) 481-2400.

Do not call the general number.

Although some of our 2021 costs have increased, BSG is retaining the same prices that were on the all of 2020 forms.

Thank You,

Ronald. G Schlicht

Chairman of the Fall S Fest

2021 HOST

Click Here for a history of S-Fest by commerative cars and patches.

S-Fest is an annual event hosted by one of four S-Gauge / S-Scale groups in the Wisconsin, Illinois, and Missouri area. The Clubs take turn in providing layouts sometimes using modules from some of the members of all of the groups. Due to this S-Gauge / S-Scale specific event, there are many S-Gauge / S-Scale and 1/64 suppliers from many states selling their merchandise at this event. Products available at these annual events include American Flyer collectibles,  new S-Gauge / S-Scale items, controls, details, and items used for S-Scale narrow gauge. 

A unique S-gauge collector series car is developed each year and they are for sale representing the year of the event and the club that hosted the event. A patch is also available for collectors and generated for those of us who collect or wear them at shows.
