QuartzFest Mobile Website


QuartzFest is special in part because it comes to life each year, rising from nothing in a remote area of the Sonoran Desert in the southwestern USA. Hundreds of Hams and their families and friends choose to unplug from their daily lives, travel to and setup this desert community, and immerse themselves in this week-long one-of-a-kind ham radio, camping learning and living event.


QuartzFest is held every year in the Sonoran Desert on government land just south of the town of Quartzsite, Arizona in the USA. The location is accessible by vehicle just a few miles away from Intersate 10 and highway 95. The closest major airport is Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (PHX) just about 100 miles to the east.
