Swap Meet 
and Vending

The Wauseon National Swap Meet runs from 8 am on Thursday to Sunday morning and features over 800 vending spaces filled with antique motorcycles and motorcycle parts.  No matter the make, model, or decade, if you're looking for something for your old bike, you're bound to find it at Wauseon! 

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, our swap meet is currently sold out, but please join our waitlist for a space next year!

Golf cart rentals are not available during the meet.  Please make other arrangements ahead of time or bring your own.  Nothing larger than a standard-sized golf cart will be allowed through the gates.
