The Northeast Filk Convention, held since 1990, known since 2000 as NEFilk, is the filk convention of the northeastern United States. It rotates among different locations and hosting organizations, under the names ConCerto, ConCertino, Conterpoint, and Contata. NEFilk has been used as the name of the common identity since 2000.

A con committee including members of the alternating groups planned a joint convention, to be called NEFilk 2020, in Danbury, Connecticut, but it had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 epidemic. It was replaced with an online convention called NEWhere (pronounced "anywhere"). The same happened in 2021–22. They announced that there would be no con in 2023.
