Gates open for shoppers starting at 6:30 a.m., if weather permits, at a cost of $2. Vendors can set up shop at 6 a.m. on a first-come first-serve basis, or make a reservation in advance for $10. Pets are not allowed in the shopping area. Kids 14 and under can attend for free.
The event runs until noon on Sundays until Sept. 30. The shopping area is located on the speedway at 2207 Millstream Rd. Additional information can be found at westernspeedway.net/swap-and-shop.
