Frequently Asked Questions
Are private scooters and golf carts allowed?
Private golf carts are NOT allowed at the Pate Swap Meet between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm each day of the swap-meet. There is simply too much foot traffic to safely allow them to operate. The limited numbers of golf carts that are used on the venue are used by authorized Pate Workers such as Parts Haulers and Pate Staff.
However, certain types of private electric scooters are allowed. Personal scooters ARE(!) allowed as long as they meet the requirements of being used in a federal building or a shopping mall. There is an on-site vendor that rents compliant scooters or if you have your own you are welcome to bring it.
Compliant scooters can be rented on-site but a reservation is definitely recommended. See https://www.eventscooters.com/reservation.aspx?id=2135/
Mini-bikes are not allowed on the Pate Swap Meet venue between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm each day of the swap-meet.
