Since 1965, the Turlock Swap Meet has convened during the last full weekend of January, kicking off the new year on the right foot. The meet is dedicated to the hobbyists who restore and collect antique and classic automobiles. This is one of the most competitive events of the year for vendors since once you are a vendor, your spot is reserved every year as long as you continue to pay your dues. You can learn more about becoming a vendor here.
In addition to showing off their classic cars, there will also be cars for sale! Lots for cars that are available for sale cost $40 each for cars 20 years and older, and $60 for cars 19 years and newer. Staging begins at 9am on Friday, so make sure to get up there early if you are planning on showing off your car!
