    The Berryville VA hamfest, put on by the Shenandoah Valley Amateur Radio Club is indeed still going strong and is in its 72nd year. The large oak tree shaded tailgate area is typically full, the Ruritan's put on an excellent lunch, lots of parking, prizes and an air conditioned building are all big plusses. A public pool and a county park with picnic area is across the street for the kids and XYL. Always the first Sunday in August. August 6 2023.

    Fantastic description of the Berryville VA Hamfest! My family and I are heading there this Friday to enjoy Virginia and attended the hamfest.

    Keep an eye out for the Tullahoma, Tennessee hamfest. This year, the building was packed. All tables were booked, and we had a great VE session. First one I have done since becoming an extra and VE. It is always the second Saturday in March.

    I live near there. As others have mentioned, that is a small club hamfest done about four times a year. Within a 45 minute drive I probably have 20 Hamfest a year I can go to, some even smaller. Almost an overload. I barely do one or two a year. The Tampabay Hamfest in December held in Plant City is a little bigger. Hamcation in Orlando in Feburary is probably the biggest in the area.

    On another note, back in the 80's in New England I recall two. One small one and one big one in New Hampshire, now called Nearfest. Both of them had a large amount of items that were not spit shined.
