The Great American Stamp Show 2021

Remember the 2021 combined show will be held August 12-15, 2021 in the Chicago, IL suburb of Rosemont, located near O’Hare International Airport.  More information will be on the ATA and APS websites and will be posted here and in The Philatelic Gourmet as it becomes available. Make plans now to attend.

Our Gastronomy Unit plans to help sponsor the ATA booth and also enter The Philatelic Gourmet in the literature competition.  And we plan to sponsor a meeting so our members present at the show can get together; perhaps we’ll interest others in Gastronomy on stamps.


About the Gastronomy on Stamps Study Unit

The Gastronomy on Stamps Study Unit was founded in 2018 and is now in its fourth year of serving topical collectors interested in stamps related to food, gastronomy, food crops, cooking, etc. The Philatelic Gourmet​ October 2020 issue contained an interesting article about Oktoberfest by Lee Strayer; information about the new Euromed Postal “Traditional Gastronomy of the Mediterranean,” by David Kent and David Wolfersberger; and a discussion of new issues by David Kent. The next issue will be published in April 2021.
