The Stuart hamfest is well known for awesome prizes- usually more than $1500 worth. Our prizes are often better than some of the biggest hamfests in the south. Buying a prize ticket is completely optional meaning your odds of winning something are pretty good compared to a hamfest which requires an entrance fee or ticket.

Order Tickets Online Now (online orders close Friday before the hamfest at midnight eastern time- you may still get them at the hamfest)

  • Winner need not be present for major prizes (Grand, 2nd, and 3rd)
  • Major Prizes may be collected at the hamfest or shipped to the winner (shipping for continental USA ONLY)
  • Amateur Radio License is not required to buy tickets (you must be licensed to transmit of course)
