Hara Arena to Close
The general chairman of the 2017 Dayton Hamvention® announced today that the owners of Hara Arena had decided to permanently close the facility.
However, Ron Cramer said show officials had already been developing contingency plans (Hara's future has been questionable for several years) and that "a great new home" had been lined up, although details were still being finalized. Cramer assured Hamvention vendors and visitors that the event would remain on the same weekend and would still be in the Dayton area.
WHIO-TV reports that Hara will close after its final scheduled event on the weekend of August 27.
