2021 Dayton Hamvention Cancelled

 

 

Citing "several setbacks in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic," the Dayton Hamvention Executive Committee has announced the cancellation of the 2021 event, scheduled for mid-May. The announcement cited the slower-than-expected rollout of the COVID vaccine as well as the even-more contagious variant that has emerged in recent weeks.

 

This is the second consecutive year in which the pandemic has forced cancellation of the world's largest hamfest. The committee says tickets that were deferred from last year will be deferred again, and that plans are in the works for another on-air Hamvention QSO Party on what would have been the Hamvention weekend.
