Flea Market Information
Check back for additional and/or changed information
(we are still in the planning stages, information may change as we approach the hamfest - plans should be finalized by July)

In an effort to simplify the “Land Rush” procedure for obtaining Flea Market spaces on a first come basis (also see bottom for more info)  , we will lock the gates to the fair grounds Sunday August 25, 2024 and will open the back gate as soon as spaces are flagged and ready. Please enter the back parking lot off Kemper Road and park there.  The gates will be opened for short periods of time to keep the traffic flow at a safe level. You should BRING YOUR ADMISSION TICKET or be prepared to purchase a ticket in order to obtain flea market spaces (maximum of 5 spaces per person). Flea Market spaces are $15.00 each.  After you have chosen and paid for your spaces, you will be ready to return home.

You do not have to get your space on Aug. 25, 2024, there will still be good spaces available all the next week and on Friday August 30 & Saturday morning August 31; someone will be on site (9 AM - 5 PM the week before the hamfest – we can not provide 24/7 drive up service) to help you.

Each person (with a paid admission ticket) may reserve up to 5 spaces (10’ X 20’) Each person must be present to reserve spaces or send a designated buyer who is NOT buying spaces for themselves. (For example, your spouse or friend could buy 5 spaces for your friend who is not able to be there on Sunday, but “you” can’t buy spaces for your friend if you are buying spaces for yourself). In order to purchase a flea market space, you must GO TO THE SPACE AND BRING BACK THE COLORED FLAG(S) from the spaces you want. (If the space does not have a flag in it that means it has already been rented.) Once you have picked up your flags, take them to the Hamfest Office. They will take your flags, your money, and give you a ticket for each space that you rent (this is your “deed to the property” and shows that it has been properly rented).  We hope that you will find this procedure “user friendly”.

This procedure will be in effect the week before the hamfest and up until the gates are closed to vehicle traffic on the morning of the hamfest.
