Texas Motor Speedway - Fort Worth, Texas


Check out our web site at pateswapmeet.com.

A  New Decade - Or, have we been there before? Will we refer to the coming decade as the "Roaring Twenties" again?  We hope to see you at the Pate Swap Meet for a roaring good time at our 48th event.  Happy New Year!

Preregistration for 2020 - Preregistration for Pate Swap Meet 2020 ends March 31, 2020. After that date, all space sales will be handled on-site only at the registration building beginning April 29. To preregister go to Pateswapmeet.com  or call 713-649-0922.

"Pate Times" Advertising -  The vendor directory of the Pate Swap Meet is offered to every visitor and vendor at the entrance gates. There is a great opportunity for vendors to advertise in the Pate Times and attract buyers to their space.  The deadline for ad placement is April 1, 2020.  Contact John Anderson at 512-413-6328  or jcander2920@att.net. BONUS: If a vendor advertises in the "Pate Times" we will extend an offer to add the vendor's logo to our Pate web site free. (Vendors must provide URL logo at minimum 600 pixels wide.)

ATMs - Ever find that very rare part at Pate and just have to have it, but be just a little short on cash? Problem solved! This year there will be an ATM located at every entrance gate.  That's right, all 8 gates will have an ATM.  

Manufacturer's Midway - For years Pate Swap Meet has sold out the capacity for Commercial Big Lots in the swap meet area and we have a waiting list. To address the need for more commercial space we will open a venue called Manufacturer's Midway in the area next to the speedway between the Car Corral and the Car Show. This area is for commercial vendors with new products only. Space size is 25' x 50'. Contact Sam Romeo at 713-562-1885 for space availability. 

Pate Space Renewal -  We have heard what the vendors are saying about renewing their space while at this year's swap meet.  For the first time, we will offer on-site space renewal for the following year (2021) swap meet. Specific details will be available in the next newsletter.

Car Show - There will be a Car Show sponsored by Wheels For Wellness along with free cancer screening on Saturday, May 2, 2020.
