These dates may or may not conflict with other activities but availability of the space is limited.  The semi-annual Tailgate Fest is open at no cost to participants whether selling or simply browsing.  The only requirements are that we leave the place in the shape we found it.  Sales must be limited to Ham equipment or other electronics related equipment.  We are indebted to the Scottish Rite of Richmond for their gracious permission to use their parking lot two times a year.  Our use of the space depends on our being thoughtful guests.  Thank you for your consideration.
