Mid Atlantic Festival

The Mid Atlantic Festival (#MATFEST) is back and better than ever. Join us March 8-9, 2019 at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania for this two-day event designed specifically for newly-formed programming boards and those with limited budgets. #MATFEST is the place to be if you are looking for a training opportunity for students that are new to NACA or your group is unable to attend larger scale events due to time or budget constraints. And while #MATFEST may be easy on the budget, it promises to have a big impact with outstanding showcases, exciting opportunities in the Campus Activities Marketplace and stellar professional development.

What Makes #MATFEST Different?

All Inclusive Registration

  • The registration fee is very affordable and now includes all meals.
  • Budget friendly lodging ($99 per night).

More Showcases

  • "New to NACA" Showcase (acts that have never showcased on a NACA stage before). This will allow new artists you've never seen before an opportunity to get on stage and wow our audiences.
  • "Variety" Showcase (a novelty showcase with longer, 20-minute slots). This is meant to add a greater variety to the type of acts that are showcasing outside of comedy and music. 
  • All acts are priced at $1,500 +SLRMT or below for the Special Conference/Single Date Price. (Block Booking pricing must include travel).

Expanded Networking Opportunities

Experiential Learning
