Realized I hadn't seen this posted, but looks like the Trexlertown fall swap is going this year

thanks for the tip! I was a bit uncertain of that link, and the more official looking https://thevelodrome.com/community-programs/velofest/ confirms the Sept 24 date now (previously it was still showing spring info)

Such good news, even if I don't buy anything it is enjoyable just looking around after having breakfast at the Kutztown Airport diner. Been a tradition since 1999.

so I just saw this on the Philly CL -- https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/...529862690.html

I wasn't even aware that the VeloFest and the bike swap were different events -- the VeloFest is a vendor expo and the swap is the flea-market-like thing. (I just called the number on the CL ad and confirmed.) The bike swap is the one I've been to before, and I can confirm that it's a good time and good prices!

Velofest does accept non-professional vendors as well.

All these PA guys need to sit down together because there aren't enough people in the long term to support three separate swaps in like a 100 mile radius on 3 consecutive weekends (Velofest, T-town Firehouse and Kutztown).

Doing them on the same day, which is how it was before the pandemic makes so much more sense.

Just hoping it does not rain on the fall swap like it did during the spring swap
