Tampa Bay Hamfest Admission Ticket
The general admission ticket for the Tampa Bay Hamfest provides admission both days to all of the Hamfest activities such as Tailgate, Expo Hall displays, Forums, Testing and so on. All persons within the Hamfest must have an admission ticket. This includes all visitors/buyers, vendors and those helping them, and Hamfest volunteers.
The stub on the ticket should be filled out and placed in the raffle drum near the Hamfest Service Desk in the Expo Hall. This enters the owner to win a prize as tickets are drawn periodically during the Hamfest hours. You must be present to accept this prize.
A Grand Prize is drawn at the end of the Hamfest. You need not be present as we will make every effort to get the prize to the winner after the Hamfest closes. Make sure your information is clear and complete on the stub before you drop it into the raffle drum.
The $9.00 advance ticket sale price applies until the day before the Hamfest opens. Thereafter, admission tickets cost $10.00 at the gate and at the Service Desk in the Expo Hall.
Students with proper ID pay $5.00 for a ticket at the gate.
Under 12 years are admitted free when accompanied by a responsible adult with a paid admission.
All Public Service and Military personnel in uniform receive a ticket at the gate free of charge.
