Come to Abbotsford, BC for the 48th annual Coastal Swap Meet! What began as a simple get together to swap car parts now boasts over 900 vendor booths! You’ll find everything from antique car parts to collectibles and antiques at the show. May 26th and 27th, 2017 at Tradex!
The annual Coastal Swap Meet started out primarily as a way for car enthusiasts to trade or sell vintage and custom car parts to each other. The meetup was a great way to clean out your garage and have fun with like-minded individuals (it still is!).
Well, as with most good ideas, the annual Coastal Swap Meet grew over the years. Now, nearly 50 years after the first Coastal Swap Meet, the little get-together has become a big, two-day event that draws vendors, buyers, and gawkers from all over Canada and the U.S. It is now, in fact, one of the biggest automotive themed swap meets in Western Canada!
Many of the folks attending the Meet have been going for years and have come to treat it as a reunion of sorts. It’s just this kind of friendly, happy, almost familial atmosphere that has allowed the to Coastal Swap Meet to not only survive but thrive over the years.
That and all the great stuff people bring out to trade and sell!
Whether you’re an auto enthusiast or not, you’ll be amazed at some of the weird and wonderful car parts, accessories, and more that people bring to the show. Sometimes it seems more like a museum than a swap meet! You can even purchase an entire vehicle at the Car Corral. Every year sees amazing deals!
Beyond parts and accessories for hot rods, classic, and custom cars, you’ll also see automotive themed books, clothing, decorations, and more. While the general theme of the event is automotive, that’s not all that will be on tap at the Coastal Swap Meet! The years of the show being strictly vehicular are long gone and now, along with all the gearhead regalia, you’ll also find all kinds of other interesting antiques and collectibles.
Don’t miss it!
