What’s a Hamfest?

Hamfests are events in which Amateur Radio folks gather to talk about the hobby they love, meet manufacturers and retailers, shop for oddities and rare finds at a flea market, watch demonstrations of the latest gear, and attend educational forums. The world’s largest Hamfest is Dayton Hamvention®, but smaller, more localized events occur regularly worldwide. Click here to find Hamfests in your neck of the woods.
