Vintage car show set next Saturday at Fowlerville Fairgrounds

Over 150 vendors and thousands of vintage and classic car enthusiasts are expected at the 48th Annual Vintage Motor Car Club of America (VMCCA) Great Lakes Region Swap Meet to be held on Saturday, April 30 at the Fowlerville Fairgrounds, 8800 W. Grand River Ave.

Since moving to the fairgrounds over 40 years ago, the event has become an annual rite of spring for bargain hunters seeking old car parts, automotive literature and memorabilia, tools, hardware, antiques and much more.

Vendors from around Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and the greater Midwest will once again converge on the event’s traditional “last weekend of April or first weekend of May”, after the event was cancelled completely in 2020 and rescheduled to August in 2021 due to COVID-19 state health restrictions.

Considering the size of the open fairgrounds field (over 300 spaces are available), booth sizes are a generous 15’ x 30’, at a cost of $25 in advance or $30 at the gate on April 30, which opens to dealers for set-up at 7:00am. The one-day swap meet is open to the general public from 8:00am-5:00pm, with a gate fee of $5 for anyone over 12 (kids free when accompanied by an adult). A car corral for selling vehicles is also available for $10. Local Livingston County concessionaires Tony’s Dogs and Good Sense Coffee will be onsite all day with hot and cold food and drinks.
