The Pate Swap Meet has the largest display in the United States of products related to a variety of new and vintage automobiles, motorcycles, and hard-to-find items that are needed to keep them in working order. Additionally, collectors flock to this event to find items to add to their collections. Gas pumps, vintage signs, auto parts, rusty cars waiting to be made new again, tools, oil cans and much more are waiting to be discovered.
The event has a reputation for drawing huge crowds, an enormous number of vendors, and visitors from all over the United States. As a result, the Pate Swap Meet officers are responsible for organizing the gathering to keep it running in a safe and orderly fashion. To achieve this lofty goal, rules must be put in place to ensure the event runs smoothly and patrons and vendors are safe.
Wednesday is set-up day for vendors, and they may enter at any time with proper windshield stickers. The swap meet is not open to the general public for sales. Pate Swap Meet concludes on Saturday night. Vendors needing more time to load may stay over Saturday night on their assigned spaces but must vacate Texas Motor Speedway by 1:00 pm Sunday.
Swap meet spaces are not assignable except at time of purchase. Your space(s) will be designated with a numbered marker in each space. Your displays must be kept within the boundaries of your space(s).
PLEASE READ THESE RULES COMPLETELY
