“The best little hamfest west of the Mississippi”

Sept. 6th & 7th 2024 Friday and Saturday

Come enjoy the beauty of Rich Mountain with family and friends. Fifty five years ago a number of guys on 75 meters decided to come to this place to do just that.  Y’all come enjoy the mountain,  fellowship, and let’s get acquainted.  Just 13 miles west of Mena, Arkansas, on Hwy 88, Queen Wilhelmina State Park sits at an elevation of 2500 ft on Rich Mt.

Plenty of flea market area provided inside or outside the two tents. Bring your own tables, chairs, and electricity. All spaces under the tents and outside the tents are a $10.00 donation.  Flea market spaces are first come first serve! Limit one vehicle per tent or flea market space. For tent reservations please contact Robert at tallchaplain@yahoo.com.
