Tulare 2023 IS A GO!!!!!!

Post by 67pontiac » Tue Jun 28, 2022 5:01 pm

Fear Not!! Tulare 2023 will be a GO!!! Steven Chase and I have been working hard to make this event even better than last year. There have been quite a few changes happening and I'll explain in detail a little later. At this point, Tulare is going to be held at the Tulare County Fair Grounds in Tulare. The Board of Directors at The International Ag Center decided not to continue with their Swap-O-Rama and, thus, cancelled the Pre-War/Brass-Era swap meet as well. The 2023 edition of Tulare will closely resemble the "traditional" Bakersfield Swap Meet. It will be a Pre-War/Brass-Era ONLY event. The details are still being worked on. We are planning on having vendor move-in on Thursday afternoon with the swap meet available through about noon on Sunday, or, until everybody "bugs-out". I'll be in contact with many of the vendors and hopefully we can have a very successful event next April. Tentative dates will be April 13 through 16. Again, I'll post more details soon so we can all make plans to attend this premier West Coast Pre-War/Brass-Era event. I hope to see many of you in Tulare next April. With Kind Regards, Bill Bennett

Great news. I think it will be more like the Bakersfield meet of the old days. That is not to say that Bill and Steven have not scored a home run with the Tulare meet. I have done very well there the last two years. I trust these guys to give us a great experience. I will be there for sure.

The Tulare (formally the Bakersfield) Swap Meet has been moved from the Agri Center to the Tulare Fairgrounds. Our premier Brass Era/ PreWar swap meet is already "booked" from Thursday afternoon through Sunday morning, April 13 - 16, 2023. We would like to have most 2023 vendors registered before the new year. Please keep my email address handy for future questions. NewNorthSouth@gmail.com


BTW; Rumor has it that this event might be immediately followed by the HCCA National Convention/ Hangover Tour right there in Tulare County's beautiful countryside. Please stand by for more details.
