Is It October Yet??
The Pomona Swap Meet is rapidly approaching!! Come out October 17th 2021 for the “West Coast’s Largest” antique auto, Corvette, Porsche, street rod, and Volkswagen swap meet and classic car show. Our August 15th show was a complete sell out! We would love to share our tips to give you the best chance of getting in to the October 17th Swap Meet.
At the August swap meet we sold out of vendor spaces on Saturday morning, which is our set up day. If you’d like to secure a vendor space, we recommend contacting the CDTFA to get your Seller’s Permit, and then contact us for a vendor application so that you can reserve your spaces in advance. If you don’t reserve in advance, we do sell spaces on site. Enter Gate 15, on Arrow Hwy. early and be in line when we start selling spaces Saturday morning at 9am.
On Sunday, our car corral reached capacity by 8am and the Fairplex General Parking lot for general admission filled up not long after. We allow people to start dropping off vehicles in our Car Corral on Saturday (our set up day) after 9am through Fairplex Gate 15. Gate 15 remains open day and night throughout the show Sunday. We suggest dropping vehicles off on Saturday or entering very early Sunday morning.
All spectators must enter Fairplex Gate 17 off of Fairplex Drive. Spectators/shoppers are NOT allowed to walk in through gate 15. The Fairplex general parking lot opens at 5am Sunday for spectator parking. Please arrive early to ensure you get. Fairplex charges $15 for parking and they will only be accepting payment by card. The “No Parking” regulations on streets and neighborhoods surrounding Fairplex will be strictly enforced. Vehicles parked in violation will be ticketed and/or towed.
As of Oct. 7, 2021, the Los Angeles Department of Public Health will require all employees and attendees ages 12 and older, of large outdoor events (10,000 people or more) to show proof of vaccination or provide a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of the event. Individuals must wear face coverings at large outdoor events regardless of vaccination status.
