The 2023 Yuma Hamfest has been canceled. Due to silent keys, a diminished volunteer pool, increased costs, and other factors. The 2023 Yuma Hamfest has been canceled. The Yuma Hamfest may return in the future in a simpler format. Thank you to all those that have supported us over the years. The past success of the Yuma Hamfest is because of you. Those that have already paid money for 2023 will be issued refunds. - Yuma County Fairgrounds

Fairgrounds Facility

The Yuma Hamfest is held annually at the Yuma County Fairgrounds. The facility is over 100 acres in size and large enough to handle our event for years to come. The fairgrounds facility is so large we doubt we'll ever outgrow it. The location is:

Yuma County Fairgrounds
2520 East 32nd Street
Yuma, AZ 85365

The Theater Building, which is at the epicenter of the event, is 24,000 sq. ft., or well over a half acre in size! This is where the commercial vendors and information exhibits are located. Besides the Theater Building, we use three other buildings, one dedicated to license testing and meetings and two for seminars. In addition, we occupy several other buildings for camper and vendor registration and special events. The layout of the fairgrounds, with its large expanse of grass, also allows us to park RVs smack dab in the middle of the action, so you will find tailgaters scattered around selling their goodies right in front of their "home." With potentially 40 acres of tailgating area and 20 acres of parking, we are set for years to come.

The fairgrounds offers large bathrooms (not porta-potties), shower facilities, food concessions, snack areas with shaded picnic tables, and a huge covered canopy where campers can be out of the sun if they choose. Wheelchair access is not a problem. Please come join us for the Yuma Hamfest.
