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

Because of our proximity to the Marine airbase, all amateur radio transmissions must be limited to a power level of 100 watts. The military monitors nearby RF transmissions and they take this very serious. Violators of this rule will be immediately asked to leave the facility.
