It’s the event that gives a whole new meaning to wheeling and dealing. The 9th annual Portland International Raceway Automotive Swap Meet will feature more than 1,500 vendor stalls and more than two miles of automotive-related gear located on the racetrack. The event will take place on the PIR racetrack at 1940 N Victory Blvd. in Portland April 4 through 6 from 7am to 5pm daily. Cost is $5 per day; free for children under the age of 12. Parking is $10 per day, or the MAX Yellow Line stops just outside PIR. The event annually attracts more than 15,000 visitors.
From memorabilia to manuals, coveralls to cars, gas pumps to go karts, and tools to transmissions, the swap meet offers thousands of unique, original stock, antique, vintage and custom vehicles and parts and auto-inspired items on display and for sale. This celebration of car culture is designed for gearheads, but appeals to everyone who loves a good find and a great deal.
The event offers a complimentary parts pick-up area that stores purchased items for the day, allowing consumers to secure a way to retrieve them; as well as a “haul and go” delivery system that transports purchases directly to consumer’s vehicles, provided they are parked in the PIR parking lot. This donation-based service raises funds for the Community Transitional School (CTS), a Portland-based organization that provides educational services to area homeless children; the past five years have netted more than $35,000 for the school.
