KAARC Winter Swap Meet

Always the First Saturday and Sunday in February

In 1963, the club members organized their first swap meet at the corner of Westnedge and Michigan Avenue in Kalamazoo. The following year, they expanded to the Engel VW Dealership at Crosstown and Vine Streets. 

Today 50 plus years later... The swap meet has grown to one of the largest of its kind in the Mid West, covering over 52,000 square feet, now held annually at the Kalamazoo Expo and Fairgrounds on the first week-end of February.

Best described by long time chairman Stan Rakowski "This ain't no Flea Market!"

Over the years thousands and thousands of people and vendors have visited.  For they know, the first weekend in February, at the KAARC Winter Swap Meet, that it's all about car parts and automotive memorabilia.

We hope to see you there!!
