On event day, please arrive early and keep aisles orderly. Staff will show you to your space. Spaces are approximately 12x12 and include 1 parking space. If you require a trailer, additional vehicles or double canopies, please purchase additional spaces to accommodate. Bring your own canopies, tables and chairs or tail-gate. We will email you through the eventbrite system after registration with detailed info.
There will be food and drink vendors as well as watering stations to get fresh water for your animals. There will also be portable restroom units and hand-washing stations.
Please pay close attention to animal health. Sick or otherwise unthrifty animals will not be permitted at the swapmeet.
Livestock or poultry purchased from an auction within 60 days of swapmeet are NOT permitted. This aids in the prevention of the spread of disease.
All animals must remain confined or in a cage.
Bring boxes with ventilation holes to send home new pets.
Due to liability reasons, we no longer permit dogs. We are sorry for this necessary change.
Early bird set up on Friday anytime after noon is welcome. Many vendors enjoy setting up at a slower pace and reserving their favorite spot. Please keep your boxes and cages tucked under your tables and drop canopies as low as possible in case we get any wind. Camping is welcome on Friday night. If you're coming a good distance, you may prefer to stay the night. Campers and RV's require the purchase of a second space. Tents that can be packed back up in the morning are free.
All livestock (alpacas, donks, goats, sheep, ponies, etc.) must come with scrapie tag if applicable and/or health certificate if out of state.
All equine must also come with a neg. coggins.
Please be diligent by checking birds for signs of illness; listlessness, ruffled feathers, sinus drainage, sneezing or wheezing. If you notice sick animals, please notify staff immediately.
NO ONE is permitted in the chicken barns on the premises. Thank you.
