As you are aware, hamfest activities have been quite different this year. We are happy to report that we are on track for another great year.

We have been monitoring the status of COVID-19 related conditions and are working with the Cologne Community Center staff to ensure that we can adhere to the guidelines established by the State of Minnesota as well as the recommendations of other Health and Safety Organizations. We will be making every effort to ensure that vendors and guests can maintain social distancing as well as recommending that all attendees wear a mask and use hand sanitizer to further enhance everyone’s safety.

Also, with restrictions on public events being reduced, we are expecting a larger than usual attendance and encourage everyone to pre-register to help us plan accordingly. Please share with your friends and favorite vendors to make sure that no one misses out.

We will continue to monitor safety guidelines and adjust our recommendations as we get closer to September.
