Hamvention 2017 looks like it will be a well attended event. Camping sites are all filled. All inside exhibit buildings and tents are filled. The possibility of adding an additional tent for exhibits is being explored. Tickets are being mailed and flea market spots are being processed as quickly as possible. Again, we thank you for your patience.
Maps of the Hamvention layout have been posted on the Directions page. They are working maps so some changes may be made but they should be useful for planning your visit.
We have discovered that some GPS units will lead you to closed gates at the Fairgrounds. Once you reach Xenia we recommend you turn off the GPS and you follow signs and/or the maps posted on this website. We also recommend that everyone monitor the talk-in station on 146.94 (123.0 tone) for updates on traffic conditions. Additional remote parking with free shuttles is being developed and we would recommend visitors consider using the remote sites to avoid the traffic lines waiting to enter the Fairgrounds. More details and maps will be posted when finalized.
Volunteers are still needed. If you would like a Hamvention hat, a free ticket and a volunteer parking permit, fill out the application on the Volunteer page. If your availability matches our needs, you will be contacted by the appropriate chairman. Past volunteers are especially encouraged to apply since your Hamvention experience would be an asset at our new location.
