The Acadiana Amateur Radio Association will sponsor its 60th Acadiana Hamfest 2020 at the Rayne Civic Center on March 13th & 14th, 2020.  The Crawfish Boil will be held again on Friday, March 13th due to the tremendous success of this event in previous years.  The pricing of crawfish will vary with the demand and supply at hamfest date.  Our crawfish boil tickets are $24.00 per 4 pound order.  If the crawfish price is high, you may get under 4 pounds per order.  If the price is low, you may get more than 4 pounds per order.

The hamfest will be held at the Rayne Civic Center located at 210 Frog Festival Drive, Rayne LA 70578.  From I-10 take Exit 87 South.  Stay on LA 35 South to the first traffic light.  Turn right onto Oak Street.  Go to the second street and turn right onto Gossen Memorial Dr.  Follow the street to the Rayne Civic Center on Frog Festival Drive.  Click here to see the map to the AARA Hamfest site. 

The City of Rayne has one of the finest RV camp grounds right on our hamfest site.  Over 700 RV spaces are available with hookups ranging from 30 to 50 amps, water and sewage on most sites and a dump site on location.  Special rates are available for our hamfest guests.  Come early and enjoy the rag chewing and eye-ball contacts.

There are numerous places to eat, shop, and stay overnight just a few blocks from the hamfest site in the City of Rayne and the Acadia Parish area.  Whether you live nearby or not, come join us!  If you are traveling to join us, there are plenty of sight seeing opportunities available in the Acadiana area to make your trip even more worthwhile. Attractions include Mouton Accordions & Music, Grand Opera House of the South, Crystal Rice Plantation & Heritage Farm and many more area attractions noted at the Acadia Parish Tourism web site.  There are many things to do before and after the hamfest.
