2. Admission Ticket Policy

Anyone inside the building during set-up times must have a vendor ticket or pass, and those without one will be escorted out. (NO exceptions)! Fleamarket vendors can purchase tickets (discounted to $5 and good for prize drawings) at check in. There are no advanced ticket sales. Premium table vendors are supplied with complimentary tickets (2 max per table, 6 max per vendor, at check in), which are not good for prize drawings.

3. Security

During set-up, anyone carrying merchandise out of the facility will be stopped and required to provide proof of ownership. This is to insure that nobody takes your property. Please note that overall security of your property is still your responsibility both during setup and while the show is open. A Deputy Sheriff will be on-site continuously from Friday at 4 PM through Sunday at noon. We thank you for cooperating.

4. General Notes

As in the past, you will be able to drive directly to your table, but please note the above times that the drive-in doors will be closing, and plan accordingly. Vendors setting up or bringing in additional merchandise Sunday morning can pull up just outside the appropriate drive-in door and hand truck your items in. Any tables not occupied by 9:00 AM Sunday are subject to be resold.

Hamfest staff members will be at each drive-in door to offer assistance, both during setup and Sunday afternoon during tear down.

The Memorial Coliseum is a smoke-free facility, so please be aware there is NO SMOKING allowed anywhere in the building. Playing recorded or live music is prohibited without proof of an ASCAP/BMI license.

The open display of pornographic material is strictly prohibited and Hamfest reserves the right to require you to remove it from public view.

The Memorial Coliseum prohibits bringing any outside food/drink/alcohol into the facility.
