Everything is big in Texas — even their swap meets! Now entering its 41st year, the Pate Swap Meet — slated for April 25-28 — has grown to the third-largest event of its kind in the country, according to organizers.
Based out of the enormous Texas Motor Speedway complex, 20 miles north of Fort Worth, Pate now boasts more than 7,500 vendor spaces and plenty of room for special events and parking.
The swap meet features parts for everything from antiques to hot rods plus unique memorabilia for your Man Cave. If you are looking for some classic wheels, there are rows and rows of great cars, trucks, and motorcycles for sale for almost any budget.
Gates will open at 7 a.m. Admission is free. Parking is $5. Camping is available. For details, visit www.pateswapmeet.com or call 713-649-0922.
