Great Lakes HamCon 2017 Hamfest

Michigan International Speedway


The Great Lakes HamCon 2017 hamfest was held October 7-8 at the Michigan International Speedway. This was the first year for this new event and was well attended by visitors.

The day on Saturday started off with some showers right up until showtime but cleared up nicely for the rest of the day. There appeared to be about 75 difference flea market vendors, but only two commercial vendors. Getting vendors committed for the first year seemed to be a challenge. Based on the interest from those attending, it is very likely this event will continue to grow.

The facilities were top-notch, held on the infield of the two-mile oval track. For someone that had never been to a track like this before in person, it is a site to see. The booths were set up on the infield on pit row. There was room for the series flea market vendors too inside. Commercial space was available, but only two were set up.

Watch for more on this growing event in 2018.
