New RV Facilities Available - Texas Motor Speedway is making the Emerald Luxury Coach VIP RV parking available during the Pate Swap Meet. It is located between Allison Ave. and Labonte Lane at the south end of the track close to the restrooms and showers. Electrical and water hookups are available. A fee of $35 per day will be collected by the track. 

Campers may still stay on their swap meet space or utilize the gravel RV parking at the north end of the swap meet (no hookups, same fee as last year). 

New Revised WEB Site - Pate Swap Meet has a new more interactive web site up and running.  Please visit Pateswapmeet.com and see what's online. 

Rescheduled Date -  The Pate Swap Meet leadership team, working with Texas Motor Speedway, was quickly able to secure the dates of October 1-3, 2020 for this year's event. We are looking forward to being past the pandemic crisis and having a safe, enjoyable swap meet. Our intent is to go back to the traditional last Thursday in April for 2021.

The Fountain of Youth - This pandemic crisis is a reminder of your teenage years; You're getting an $$ allowance, the check is in the mail;  Gas prices are low,  fill up the old hotrod;  Spring is here but you're grounded!!  


We look forward to seeing you in October.  Stay safe!
