The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health Departments.

It is with a very heavy heart the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year.

This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering we felt this action necessary.

More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted on our website www.hamvention.org.
Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.

Disappointing but understandable.

For me it's more of a social event than anything else although I do use it as an opportunity to stock my workshop back up.

Some of us are thinking about Rochester instead.
