Our 20th Anniversary!
 
This year Raleigh is holding their Hamfest on the same date we normally have ours. So we've had to find a new date for our Hamfest this year. We needed date that didn't conflict with another Hamfest, one that vendors could make, and one that the Fairgrounds was available for. It took a while but we did finally find a date that met all of the criteria - August 5th.
 
In the event of rain covered flea market spaces will be available on a 1st come 1st serve basis at no extra cost (1 space per vehicle)
