The Abbotsford, B.C. Coastal Swap Meet


The Coastal Swap Meet is an annual event held every year in May at the Abbotsford, B.C. Trade and Exhibition Centre (TRADEX). It brings together vendors from across Western Canada and Washington State, offering a wide range of auto parts, memorabilia, and related merchandise. One of the highlights of the event is the Car Corral, where you can find great deals on complete vehicles.


Organized by three local clubs, including the Vintage Car Club of Canada – Vancouver Chapter, Pacific International Street Rod Association, and Totem A & T Ford Club, the Coastal Swap Meet started as a way for car enthusiasts to sell their old parts.


Today, it has grown into one of the largest swap meets in Western Canada, featuring over 900 booths and 77 Car Corral stalls. It’s an excellent opportunity to stay up-to-date with the latest information on vintage cars and connect with fellow car enthusiasts.


Located just a short 15-minute drive from our hotel in Aldergrove, B.C., TRADEX offers the perfect venue for this exciting event. Pricing and event details can be found on the Coastal Swap Meet website.
