At this time the Greeneville Hamfest has no plans to cancel the event. Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation we will review the feasibility of having the hamfest and make an announcement by Sept 1st after our meeting that evening. Tentative planning at this time is under way and any vendors interested in attending are asked to contact us to discuss spaces. The hamfest may be limited to outdoor only flea market spaces to accommodate social distancing requirements.

Greeneville Hamfest is aware of a conflict with Chattanooga Hamfest date being the same date. Our hamfest was formerly the Gray TN Hamfest and was always held the 3rd Saturday in October at the Gray Fairgrounds. When Gray Hamfest disbanded, Greeneville Hamfest had their blessing to continue with the tradition of having a hamfest in Northeast TN on the 3rd Saturday in October and the date was available to use the fairgrounds. Our venue was booked for several years in advance and changing it to a new date was not easily done.
The Greene County Fairgrounds is quite popular for many events held in our area. Its been difficult to find an open date at the fairgrounds that doesn’t conflict with another hamfest within 250 miles. That is a huge circle that covers almost half of the state of TN and includes areas of 7 other states. After 2 years of study, we are happy to announce beginning in 2021, the Greeneville Hamfest will start being held on the 3rd Saturday of April. We hope this date change will encourage more dealers to attend.
