CANCELLED FOR 2021 - The following message from PORTLAND SWAP MEET: click here

Out of concern for the health and safety of our vendors, attendees, 450 volunteers, and local communities and in line with Local, State and National Covid-19 guidelines and principles, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 Portland Swap Meet at the Portland EXPO Center scheduled for April 9,10 & 11th. It is with heavy hearts that we make this announcement about the Portland Swap Meet at the EXPO Center (as well for the PIR Portland Swap Meet).

We have not taken this decision lightly, and we know that this comes as an enormous disappointment. After exhaustive, careful, and thorough consideration of the health risks and other factors, the opportunity for a rescheduled event later in the year is not practical. We want you to know that we are fully committed to bringing you the 2022 Portland Swap Meet on April 1, 2 & 3, 2022 at a time we hope will be safer for all.

If you are a vendor, you will receive a letter explaining your options to register for the 2022 event or request a refund. For further assistance or questions please email
