The City of Fort Worth has followed the CDC recommendations for canceling all large public gatherings occurring in the next eight weeks!
With the high risk of infection from the COVID-19 pandemic and the health and safety of vendors, attendees and staff foremost in our minds, the Pate Swap Meet has postponed the upcoming 48th Pate Swap Meet. The new dates of the event will be October 1 through October 3, 2000, the same Thursday through Saturday days as always. The now-postponed dates were to have been April 30th through May 2nd.
The Texas Motor Speedway has confirmed the new dates so they are firm.
Of course, the space reservations you are currently holding for the 2020 Pate event will be fully honored for the new dates. Everyone who has paid to renew their 2019 Pate Swap Meet spaces or who have paid to purchase new spaces can have their reservations and fees rolled over to the new event dates. Alternatively, if you wish to cancel your spaces for the new dates, you will receive a full refund of all of the fees you have paid for your spaces.

We share our vendors' and patrons' disappointment about how things have turned out. However, these are very unusual and risky circumstances. It is important that we help protect the health and safety of all who would attend such a large event.
