About the Hamfest

What started out decades ago as a simple "tailgate" meeting at Francis Langford park in Stuart is now one of the best attended hamfests in Florida- make no mistake it is still a "tailgate" event- it is not unusual to see as many as 100 or more people "tailgating" with a few commercial vendors mixed in. We're free- easy to get to- and we're in a beautiful town. So come see us for the hamfest on the third weekend in March- we'll pay your admission, OK?
