    Vienna Wireless Winterfest — The National Capital Area Ham Radio Fair
    March 29, 2020

    The 44th annual Winterfest will bring hams and equipment vendors together on March 29, 2020.  Several amateur radio clubs will be on hand to provide information about the ham radio hobby, getting started, where to find instructional help for earning the amateur radio license and much, much more!  Vendors in new and used communications equipment, antennas, cabling, parts and supplies will also be on hand to help you find the hard-to-find.  Winterfest is an ARRL approved hamfest.

    Winterfest 2020 will feature an outdoor tailgate area with 150 paved tailgate spaces. Tailgate space selection will be available on a first-come first-served basis. We have never run out of tailgate space.  Admission for everyone, vendors and the general public, begins at 6:00 am  Sunday.  The college does not permit overnight parking prior to the event.
