26th Annual International Pre-War Swap Meet
Grady County Fairgrounds, Chickasha, Oklahoma
"Where the East meets the West"
Chickasha, Oklahoma is located in the center of the U.S. on I-44 just off of I-40 & I-35, only 35 miles SW of Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. It is easily accessible from anywhere in the world. From Oklahoma City, take I-44 (H. E. Bailey Turnpike) west to the 1st Chickasha exit (Exit 83), turn right (west) to The Grady County Fairgrounds (about a mile on your left).
The meet has the largest selection of brass era parts anywhere. It is limited to automobiles, parts, transportation items pre-1945. There is plenty of free parking, and admission is free.
Next year the meet will be held on Thursday, March 17th and Friday, March 18th, 2016.
The Fairgrounds underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in recent years. The North & South Buildings were totally remodeled with all new restroom facilities. Plans were approved for a new phase of expansion that began this year. Buildings are to be built in the rodeo grounds area east of the swap meet, along with parking lots. We are uncertain as to the completion date of these new buildings and grounds renovation. This new expansion of the facilities will continue to enhance the meet, but with the construction, we are uncertain of the time line. We will strive to keep everyone informed on the progress.
The success of the meet has been a joint effort of Joe, Mike, Susie & Ryan Ersland. Joe had collected antique cars for over 60 years and started the Chickasha Antique Auto Club with the 1st meeting in his living room. His swap meet experience went back to the 1960's with his involvement with The Lawton Antique Car Club, and their Swap Meet in Apache, Ok. He was an instigator in starting the 1st swap meet ever in Chickasha in 1969.
The Chickasha Pre-War Swap Meet is sponsored by The Old Pueblo Touring Association and is not affiliated with any other swap meet. The swap meet is an annual event that will always begin the 3rd Thursday in March.
