Cowtown Hamfest 2021 Canceled By Club Committee

The Committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health departments, Tarrant County and the Cities of Forest Hill and Fort Worth.

While we held out hope that in 2021, we would be able to host the Cowtown, that has not been the case. It is with a great sadness that we must inform all that we are canceling The Cowtown Hamfest 2021 and the event postponed until January 14 -15, 2022.

We must begin planning early to bring quality vendors to our event. They place us on their calendars and make a place for us. Our loyal patrons also plan in advance, so they can have that weekend free. It is only right we think of them and their safety. We pride ourselves in bringing you a quality Hamfest. We would settle for nothing less.

We have gathered input from the Amateur Community, Health and Safety, and our Vendors. We see the continued expansion of the deadly Covid-19 Virus and know the vulnerability of our Amateur Community. We have made this decision out of a genuine concern for the health and safety of the attendees, vendors, volunteers, presenters and staff.

Thank you for your understanding. It is a disappointment for all of us. We look forward to seeing all of you at the Cowtown Hamfest 2022, January 14-15, 2022.

Details regarding this cancellation will be posted at
