We will be bringing an RV to sell out of. Is it possible to come the night before and spend the night so we are there first thing in the morning?
Unfortunately that is Manassas Park property and we only have a lease for the day of the event so parking overnight is not authorized. There are probably a couple lots in the local area that may be able to accommodate you. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Okay thanks Don.
Soi Don is this event still on?? The club website says:
CANCELLED FOR 2021
Manassas Hamfest – Saturday, June 12th, 2021
We are doing a Tailgate Event instead of the Hamfest.
It is still on and will run from 8 AM until 2 PM on Saturday, June 12th on the lot located on Signal View Drive ACROSS THE STREET from Signal Hill Park.
We hope to see you there.
That’s great, but what’s the difference? Will we still be able to sell equipment??
I have been a vendor at your hamfest for many years. It takes me almost 2 hours to get set up. I would like to arrive early to work on my set up before the crowds arrive. I have a few questions.
1. How early can I get there? Since you have only reserved the field for one day, can i get there at any time after midnight?
2. Since it appears to be an open grass field, will there be one area designated for sellers, and a separate area for buyers? How early will ill these designated areas be marked? If these areas will not be marked, can you tell me where the seller area will be?
Thank you for the questions. Our lease of the space starts at 7AM the morning of the event so arriving before then isn’t allowed. They will unlock the space that morning at that time. As for your other question we will have an area dedicated for sellers (tailgaters) and a separate parking area for attendees.
We look forward to seeing you there and thank you for your questions.
