We're glad you're coming to the 32nd Annual Nutmeg Hamfest.

The variety and quality of our vendors has made us Southern New England's  premiere Amateur Radio Event.

Whether you're tailgating or you prefer inside space, you'll find an enthusiastic crowd of eager buyers at the Nutfest.

If you've been here before, you know why we're considered the most vendor-friendly Hamfest in the Northeast.

If you're tired of Hamfest committees that treat you like an annoyance or worse,

come to the Nutfest and see the difference for yourself.


Outside Vendors:  $15 includes 1 standard parking space and 1 general admission.  No electricity is available outside.  Bring your own tables & tents.  Gates open for setup at 6:00 AM sharp.


Inside Vendors:  6' tables are $25 each, and include 1 admission per table.  Take advantage of our early bird special -- $20 per table if paid by September 29th.

Our tables often sell out well in advance of the event, so mail your check today and guarantee your space!

Electricity is available, please let us know if you need it.


The building opens for setup at 6:00 AM sharp.

To enhance your security, no one except inside vendors and staff will be permitted to enter the building before 8:00.

This allows you to make the best possible presentation to your customers.
