SESCAL  2021


The 77th Annual Stamp Exhibition of Southern California  - CANCELLED

2nd Annual SESCAL Virtual Literature Exhibit of Philatelic Articles - NOT CANCELLED

Click here for Literature Page

The SESCAL show committee received word from the Ontario Convention Center that the facility is no longer available on the second week of October this year.  We were naturally disappointed since we had “reserved” the facility for that date.  It is too late to find another venue for this year, so the Committee has cancelled SESCAL 2021 except for the literature exhibit, which is virtual.  We will begin our planning for next year’s SESCAL and start to look for an alternative venue.

The SESCAL Literature Exhibit of Articles will continue in 2021 as an online virtual competition.  The 2020 Literature Exhibit was a great success.  Details at

Note:  All other information  (except that for the 2021 Literature Exhibit)  is from our last SESCAL in 2019 before COVID-19 shut down the physical show.  Stay safe and well!
