Buy Your Pate Car Corral Tickets Now!
Get your Car Corral tickets online now. Sales for Car Corral tickets are available online. In the Pate Swap Meet, our Car Corral is an integral part of our event. As the largest automotive-related swap meet in the Southwest and the second largest in the United States, we naturally attract car people and their cars to the event. The Car Corral provides a space for operating and driveable vehicles can be gathered and offered for sale.
The Pate Car Corral offers a unique showcase for sellers and buyers of unique vehicles of all types, makes, models and vintages; from finished show cars to entry-level project cars and everything in between. The Car Corral offers cars and trucks, vintage and modern, domestic and imports, customized cars and trucks, muscle cars, hot rods, rat rods and even "old heaps" in need of work and attention.
Some vehicles in the Pate Car Corral will be finished and fully restored and others suitable for your next rebuilding project.
The Pate Car Corral is for running, operational vehicles only. No parts, motor homes, R.Vs, buses or miscellaneous items can be sold in the Car Corral.

Also, Buy Your Vendor Spaces Now! We're Filling Up Quickly.
We just finished the most successful renewal season in our history. As a result, we have much fewer Pate Vendor Spaces available than we normally have at this time of year.
Many of you often wait until December to buy your Vendor Spaces for our spring swap meet. This year, you might consider buying your spaces early; even right now!
Sales are still brisk and your choice of open and available spaces is getting smaller every day.
Currently, as of today, only 1,400 Vendor Spaces are still available on the asphalt portion of the venue. That is only 17% of the remaining spaces on the asphalt which means we are already 83% sold out in this very desirable area ten months before the Pate Swap Meet in April. Large contiguous sets of spaces are getting fewer and fewer.
There will be an additional 1,700 spaces available on the grass in our expansion when they are all fully released, including very large contiguous sets of spaces. However, they are indeed on the grass and some Vendors prefer the asphalt.
If so, please act now while a good selection still exists.
Ordering Vendor Spaces In Self-Service
Use the Space Selector map to select the spaces you wish to purchase. It is located in the "Vendor" menu in our primary navigation across the top of the page. It can also be reached by clicking on the button below.
Space Selector Map
The map zooms in and out using the "+/-" buttons on the left side of the map. The map also pans left and right as well as up and down by putting your cursor anywhere on the map, holding down your left mouse button and dragging the map to a new location.
Click on any space you wish to purchase. You can select one space or as many as you wish and in any configuration you wish. When you select a space, a red bounding box will appear on your selection. It will disappear again if you deselect the space.
In the upper right-hand of the map itself, you will find a small, square, green arrowhead icon pointing to the left. If you click on the arrowhead, a window will roll out to display a list of all of the spaces you have selected along with their full-text descriptions. Clicking the arrowhead icon again will put the list away.
Once you complete your selection, click the large green button in the top right corner of the page to add your selected spaces to a Shopping Cart. Once spaces have been added to a Cart, the spaces will be temporarily held for you for up 10 minutes while you complete your shopping for Private Toilets or Car Corral tickets. When you are finished shopping, click the "Checkout" button to finish your order. In Checkout, the hold on your selected spaces will be extended for an additional 15 minutes for you to complete your order and pay for your spaces.
If you do NOT complete your order with the "hold" period, the hold will expire and the spaces will be returned to the open pool for selection by others. The holds will prevent anyone less from selecting and purchasing the spaces while you have a reasonable time to checkout.
To finish your order, complete the checkout process and pay with a credit card or debit card. Once you complete the final payment, our system will automatically and immediately add the new spaces to your account. It is easy and painless.
