At this time I must inform you the Concession booth will not be open (see update below) this year due to Covid-19 restrictions but the washrooms will be available and appropriately sanitized for your protection. Certain Covid-19 rules will be in place and that includes but is not restricted to physical distancing, wearing masks, directional movement through the vendor area, hand sanitizing stations and double spacing of vendor spots to protect all persons both selling and buying at our flea market. The Health Department also requires us to limit the crowd to 100 persons at any one time (vendors and staff excluded). Please help us keep you all safe so we can all enjoy this year's Hanover Ham Haul.

A play area is on site for supervised children.

As of July 7, 2020, the venue operator has permission under the Phase Three rules to operate the concession. This means the concession will be open and serving refreshments, snacks and hotdogs during the hamfest. It is necessary to keep in mind the rules for distancing and wearing of masks to comply with the Covid-19 rules.

We are looking forward to seeing you there for the first Hamfest Flea Market of the year.

All proceeds go to local charities.
