Last year's Hamvention-wear
Last year's Hamvention-wear
I will be attending Hamvention in a few weeks – presenting as a woman for the eighth consecutive Hamvention.

The big difference this year is a change of venue. Instead of one huge convention hall, this year's event will take place at an Ohio county fairgrounds in a half dozen separate buildings and an unenumerated number of tents.

In the past, I would dress like a professional woman to staff a booth, visit other booths and to attend workshops/presentations all in one big convention hall. So I usually wore a dress and high heel pumps (and carried along a pair of flats just in case).

This year, in order to visit other booths and attend workshops and presentations, I will have to go outdoors to get from one building to another and heels are not the best footwear for negotiating fairgrounds terrain. Also, I might feel a little out of place wearing a dress and heels to staff a booth in a building where livestock may have hung out the previous weekend.

So I am planning my wardrobe accordingly. I will still wear a dress and heels to our annual Friday night dinner, but my daywear will be more casual than in the past.

  3. When I heard they were moving to the Greene County Fairgrounds, you were one of the first people I thought of!

    Yes, it's not going to be conducive to anything too nice! I attended one of the Springfield Antiques Fairs last summer at the Clark County (Ohio) Fairgrounds, which isn't far from Xenia, and I was definitely glad to be wearing flats --- though I think I wore a denim skirt, and I definitely wasn't the only woman wearing a skirt, though jeans and khaki pants were more common.
