Welcome to Frostfest

Welcome to the home of Frostfest – the largest winter hamfest in the Mid-Atlantic!

Frostfest is coming up on Saturday, February 2, 2019, from 8:30AM to 3:30PM. Advance tickets are on sale now.

Come back often to catch up on the latest news about the show. We will also post regular updates to our Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing you at the show!


Here is the latest news:

** Friendly reminder – the Richmond Raceway Complex does not permit pets or firearms on campus.

** Do you have an idea for how to improve Frostfest? Please let us know!

** For 2019, Frostfest has been selected as the ARRL Roanoke Division Convention! Please join us upstairs in the forums room for additional information from the League as we celebrate this special honor!

** Come join us at the Holiday Inn Richmond Airport the night before the show – Friday, February 1st at 7pm – for the Pre-Show Eyeball QSO / Meet & Greet! Enjoy fellowship with dozens of fellow hams, with snacks and beverages available at the cash bar.  The hotel has a special rate for Frostfest vendors and attendees, so you can get a great room and take the elevator home after the party! No need to be a hotel guest for the Meet & Greet, though – all are welcome.
