    Apologies to all if this has been asked/answered before.

    Are the flea market Flea Market Vendor Admission tickets good for General Admission to the Hamvention?

    Thanks,

    In a word,......................................... No

    The Vendor admission does not provide access to anything other than the flea market.

    http://hamvention.org/flea-market/#tab-1420509665-1-20

    There are a maximum of two Flea Market Vendor Admission tickets available per Flea Market space. Vendor Admission tickets allow access to the Flea Market area for set-up, prior to the Flea Market being opened to the general public....edit... General Admission tickets allow access to the entire Dayton HamventionĀ®, e.g., Inside Exhibits, Forums, Flea Market, etc.

    Thanks,

    So if I want to setup before the it opens, I need a flea market ticket ($22) . Then to see everything else I need another general admission ticket (another $22). $44 total. In addition to the $70 flea market space.

    Is the alternative to just setup when the flea market is open and save the $22?

    Thanks,
    Rod

    Thanks.

    That makes more sense. It did not seem right that you pay $22 to be a flea market vendor and then need another $22
    general admission ticket to get in the buildings.

    That worked for me in person as a tailgater, and sorry I remembered wrong, 2104 I was not a tailgater,
    but hung around at a Clubs spot, and said from now on I am going to spend the $ and tailgate.

    Very nice to be able to get in early and setup my EZ-Up and table and then wander for a little bit. :)

    I got my flea market tickets and tag in the mail a few days ago so they're getting sent out now.

    I was there 2015, 2016, 2017 as a Flea Market Tailgater Vendor.

    I went in 2014 as a General Admission ticket holder.
