Berryville Hamfest Buzz: It’s Gonna Be Terrific!

The chatter on the nets along with phone calls and emails coming in tell us that excitement is high for the Berryville Hamfest this Sunday! We’ve got vendors coming from all over the Eastern seaboard and southeast to tap into the pent-up interest after a year of hamfest shut-downs. We’re expecting record crowds and have opened up a separate tailgate entrance to take the pressure off the traffic on Route 7.

Amateur radio clubs are coming in groups from several states away to enjoy the tailgating and check out all the vendors and things for sale. Oh, and of course, for the famous Ruritan BBQ.

Weather forecast for Sunday — partly cloudy, high of 83 degrees and low percent chance of precipitation, so get ready to rumble! We’ll be posting more details about our vendors in a separate post
