New Jumbo Spaces - Vendor Midway

We're offering new types of spaces for use by any Pate Vendors (non-commercial or commercial) that are now called Vendor Midway. All of the same rules apply to Vendors Midway as regular Vendor Spaces in the main swap meet area. All Vendor Midway Spaces are jumbo-size spaces measuring 25' x 50' each and cost $300.00 for one Vendor Midway Space and $500.00 for two. Vendor Midway Spaces come with the Rights of First Refusal in our Renewal Season and will also be subject to our First Look Sale is not renewed.


The Vendor Midway Spaces are located between Lone Star Circle and the speedway itself between Petty Place and Andretti Avenue. The Vendor Midway is situated between the Car Corral and the Car Show locations.

Vendor Midway can now be selected and purchased through our online real-time Space Selector in self-service.

Only a limited number of Vendor Midway spaces are available so, if you are interested, please order soon because they will go quickly.

We're On track for a Record Year!

Our Vendor Space sales have been brisk all year. Our renewals were at an all-time high for this year and new sales have since then have been very good. As a result, our total sales are about two months ahead of where we usually are at this time of the year. Our December sales started strong and are continuing.

We're on pace to have a record year for the 2022 edition of the Pate Swap Meet.

As of this morning, we still have a good selection of Vendor Space available but we're filling up quickly. Overall, we're 78% sold out (including our new expansion spaces on the grass) ... but note ... we're already over 91% sold out on the asphalt!

We have never sold this number of spaces this early in our history.

We do have a good number of expansion spaces already pre-staged so it is highly likely that we will be able to accommodate everyone for the 2022 Pate Swap Meet. But, all of the new expansion areas are in the grass. We only have about 700 Vendor Spaces on the asphalt remaining and when they are sold, there will be no more available.

Also, if you are looking for a contiguous block of spaces, you should order as soon as possible. And, we're getting very thin on corner spaces; only a few are left in the whole venue.

We recommend that you order your 2022 Pate Swap Meet Vendor Spaces as soon as possible while there is still a good selection.

Order Online or On the Phone

Our real-time Space Selector will show all available spaces in the entire venue live and in real-time. Available spaces will be shown shaded as green polygons and can be selected with a click. Click once to select one or more spaces and click them again to deselect them if you change your mind. If a Vendor Space is not shaded in green and cannot be selected, the Vendor Space has been already purchased by someone else and is NOT available.

The Space Selector map is driven directly from our Vendor Space Database and it is updated in real-time with all recent sales every time the page is viewed or refreshed so it is continuously accurate.

You can order Vendor Spaces online in self-service 24x7.

During December, the Registrar's phones will be open from 7 AM CST to 7 PM CST on regular weekdays and from 1 PM CST to 7 PM CST on weekends. The phones may be very busy during the holidays. If you call and get the Registrar's voicemail message, be sure to leave a message. All messages will be returned at the first opportunity and in the order received.

Ordering Additional 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.

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.
