About US

Palm Springs Hamfest was originally organized by the Palm Springs DX Club and the Desert Rats Ham Radio Club joined the Hamfest the second year.

This will be the fifth ham fest.

This is an ARRL sanctioned event

The Palm Springs Hamfest has grown from about 80 people the first year to 750 in 2012. We anticipate over 1000 to attend in 2014.

The Palm Springs Hamfest has become one of the largest hamfests in the Southwestern California area.

Our theme has been to try and maintain the nostalgic atmosphere of an era by-gone, that Palm Springs, CA has been noted for.
