About the Joplin Hamfest
Held the fourth weekend in August.
August 22nd, 2020
The Joplin Hamfest Committee has had some challenges thrown our way
this year but we are working through them. The first is the COVID-19
issue and the fact that the majority of hamfest attendees are of the
high risk category. We want to accommodate everyone and still apply
the CDC Guidelines and practices for the safety of the attendees. One
way we are attempting to do this is to hold the hamfest on one day
only and have it as a tailgate type of event.
The parking spaces
will be $5.00 each (This is a double space end to end) and attendees cost is FREE.
We hope this will allow more social distancing by being outdoors.
