Findlay Hamfest September 9th
The Seventy Sixth 2018 Findlay Radio Club Annual Hamfest will be held Sunday September 9 (Gates open at 6:30 AM for Vendors to set up). The flea market area will be available for set up any time after 6:30 AM. The vendor building(s) will open to the public at 8 AM. The Hamfest will be located at the Hancock County Fairgrounds. (1017 East Sandusky St., Findlay) General admission entrance this year will be from Sandusky Street and NOT from Fishlock Ave. Vendor and Flea Market admission will be from Sandusky Street as well this year. Admission is $7 per person (under 18 is free). Flea market spaces are $5 per space (large enough for a vehicle). Inside tables (8′ tables) are $20 for the first table, and $15 for additional tables. All spots are on a “first come, first served” basis. A ticket is required for everyone who attends or works at the hamfest.

Table reservations should be sent to:

FRC Tables
PO Box 587
Findlay, OH 45839

The mailing to vendors from previous years took place in late June. If you did not receive the vendor mailout and would like one sent to you, please call Dave Hoxworth (419-306-5013) to receive the mailout. A general hamfest mailing will be done in mid-August. If you have attended the hamfest the past 2 – 3 years, you should get a general mailing. Let us know if you have any special requirements, and we will try to accommodate you.

There are no advance general admission ticket sales or flea market reservations – only indoor vendors with table reservations will be issued their tickets at the time they book their table(s).

Any questions about the hamfest can be sent to hamfest@findlayradioclub.org

CAMPING – There is a $15 per night charge for camping. If you are spending the night at the fairgrounds, you are by definition camping and the camping fee will apply.

We hope to see everyone there! (talk-in on 147.15+)
