October in Minnesota means it’s time for the annual T C Roadsters Swap Meet.

This year marks the 43rd year we have hosted this event it will be held on Sunday, October 13th.  Again at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. All gates open at 6:00 A.M.

In 2011 we had over 500 vendors from 7 states and Canada.

Remember, it’s Minnesota and “mama” just reminded a lot of guys that her car IS going to be parked inside this winter so “get that —- out of here”.

This is one of the few remaining traditional automotive swap meets where builders and restorers can still find some early car parts and typically at reasonable prices.


Admission remains at $5.00 each and there is free parking.  Please enter the fairgrounds at the Main gate from Snelling or South gate from Como.  Remember that the Minnesota State Fairgrounds does not allow parking on the grass.  If you do park anywhere on the grass you are doing it at your own risk.


Vendors pay a $10.00 admission fee and get ONE free swap space (approx 10×16). If additional spaces are required, they are available at $10.00 each. There is no pre-registration.

Please understand that the Minnesota Dept. of Revenue requires us to collect and hold a completed form ST19 or Exemption Statement from EVERY VENDOR! You can download either form from here, please complete it ahead of time and save all of us some time at entry. Also, Click Here for a Vendor Registration form. You may also print this form and bring it with you pre-filled to save time! Please enter the fairgrounds at Main gate from Snelling or the South gate from Como and the swap area at gate from COOPER. Depart through North gate to Larpenteur (see map)


We have a special parking area inside reserved for pre-1975 rods, customs, restored vehicles etc. (not daily driver beaters). Please enter the fairgrounds at Main gate from Snelling or the South gate from Como and the swap area at gate from UNDERWOOD.

For anyone DRIVING a pre-1949 ‘open’ car, the admission is FREE! That’s because it’s what T C Roadsters are all about.

We look forward to seeing you on October 14th.
