Pate Annual Swap Meet
Buy and Sell Transportation Related Items

The Pate Swap Meet, celebrating its 48th year of annual events, is the largest transportation venue of its kind in the United States. With over 200,000 visitors in 2019, the widely attended Pate Swap Meet is a leading collector's choice for its diversity of auto and motorcycle related products offered by vendors from across the country. The three day event, encompassing an average of 8,700 vendor spaces, is host to everything automobile, motorcycle, and transportation related. Visitors are treated to a vast array of items that include parts, accessories, automobilia, street rods, antique and collector cars, along with many hard-to-find and vintage items.

In addition to a fantastic three-day swap meet, there will be a car/truck show, sponsored by Wheels for Wellness Inc., on Saturday, May 2nd, from 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM. Awards will be given to the top 20 cars/trucks. FREE Prostrate Cancer PSA blood tests will be offered to Pate Swap Meet attendees.

“The Pate Swap Meet is proud to offer a wide selection of items that can be used to refurbish your vintage or classic car, motorcycle, or other mode of transportation and get it back on the road. Or, perhaps you might see something that will spark your interest in pursuing this unique hobby. For collectors, we have just about anything you can imagine in each of our zones - gas pumps, hood ornaments, vintage signs, gas and oil cans, tools, and so much more.

Whether you are a vendor or a visitor, we invite you to come participate in 3 days of fun. Happy hunting!”
