As with years past, our vendors from last year will have early-bird registration to allow them the opportunity to reserve the same booth space(s) they had last year. Open booth registration will begin on May 1, 2019. While we will try to accommodate everyone’s location preferences once open registration begins as booths are assigned on a first come first serve basis.

The Greater Nashville & Middle TN HamQuest is a new project dedicated to combining traditional Hamfest elements with less traditional offerings that will help to unite the Ham community. The Quest is sponsored by the Wilson Amateur Radio Club, with assistance from the Wilson Radio League. We believe that the HamQuest is filling a void in Middle Tennessee and it’s surrounding areas. The HamQuest is held at the Wilson County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, TN, home to the state’s largest county fair. Lebanon is just a short drive from Nashville with the feel of rural Tennessee. We have excellent access to I-40 and are convenient to a large geographical area. There are many different camping sites and hotels within a short drive from the HamQuest. The HamQuest provides a wonderful venue, low admission cost, hourly door prizes and technical presentations.
