Iola Vintage Military Show
Our vendors can be very creative.



The Famous Iola Hilton which has become a stop off for many guests.


 Swap spot prices will not be increased in 2016


Over 4,430 spaces dedicated to discovering, bargaining and buying used auto goods.


We support downright good deals, and you’re sure to find some. Whether you’ve been looking for a vintage steering wheel or a weather-seasoned fender to polish up for a hobby car, there’s plenty of treasure to explore at the Iola Car Show Swap Meet. You might just find that nostalgic piece you need.  Space size is 10′ X 30′.

The swap meet area is open for three days beginning on Thursday at 6:00 a.m.  Wednesday after 3:00 p.m. only vendors are allowed in to their spaces to set up.

2nd YEAR- Gates 2, 6, and 10 will be open on Saturday, all day!

We ARE NOT closing these gates to vendors who need to enter or exit.  We encourage vendors to stay around on Saturday for the thousands of spectators that are hunting for that perfect part/treasures/etc.

We appreciate your cooperation!
