Hamvention organizers Ron Cramer (Hamvention General Chair), Jack Gerbs, (Assistant General Chair) and Michael Kalter (CFO/Official Spokesperson) have announced that the Greene County Commissioners and the Greene County Fair Board have approved the construction of a new building at the Fairground/Expo Center.

Greene County officials have decided to move forward with construction of a new building as it will continue to expand their presence in the region as a world class Exposition Center! Hamvention certainly benefits from the decision to expand the Expo Center footprint. Construction is planned to be complete ahead of Hamvention 2018 and will be used for the event. Additionally, another building on the property previously known as Fairgrounds Furniture, is being vacated and will be available for use by Hamvention 2018.

More details regarding the building sizes will be forthcoming but Hamvention is told the floorspace added will cover an area larger than the tents Hamvention used in 2017. Although this decision was made to expand opportunities at the Expo Center, Hamvention is grateful for the support Greene County, Xenia Township, and the city of Xenia.”

The 2018 Dayton Hamvention will be held from May 18-20. For more information visit: https://hamvention.org/
