My Labor Day weekend was free of travel this year, so I was able to make another pilgrimage to the Shelby (North Carolina) hamfest with my good buddy, Vlado (N3CZ).
The Shelby Hamfest–referred to, locally, as “The Grand-Daddy of them All”–has long been regarded as one of the largest outdoor hamfests in the southeast US. This is the fourth year I’ve made a concerted effort to publish a photo tour of the event.
Weather was ideal for the hamfest–clear skies, sunshine and a dry weekend. No doubt, this was one of the reasons I believe the hamfest was well attended.

Thanks for the photos Thomas, I saw some nice vintage CB radios. My favorite vendors are the ones with all the connectors and adapters. Hope you had a good time.
Honestly, when I go to a hamfest, my shopping list always has a number of adapters and plugs, so I too hang around those vendors! Yes, the Shelby hamfest is a good one!
