Sedan Swap Meet

Sunday, June 18, 2017


If you are looking to find your treasure or it is now time to part with a few treasures of your
own, Sedan is the place to go this Sunday for the annual Swap Meet, now one of the biggest
in South Australia.
A small farming town, just 90 minutes from Adelaide and only 25 minutes from the Barossa
comes alive this Sunday 18th June with sellers and buyers from across the State searching for
that elusive piece.
What commenced as a vintage car part swap meet some 11 years ago, the Sedan Swap
Meet is now an oasis of retro, antique and bric ‘a’ brac pieces along with local produce,
plants, arts, crafts and home-made items.
Local community groups will offer a hub of pop up food stalls with hot breakfast, coffee and
warm fires to welcome you on arrival.
Rare vintage and veteran vehicle items are still on offer said coordinator Dennis McCarthy
but now, many people see the swap meet at Sedan as a winter destination day out for the
whole family.
“Over 2000 people attended the event last year where we had a diverse range of market
stalls from fresh fruit and fishing tackle to vintage cars and a pet fashion line”.
“Many people camp out on Saturday night around the oval, it becomes a tent and camping
city and I have had enquiries from buyers in Queensland, NSW and Victoria making their
way to Sedan for the event”.
Sedan turns into a giant garage sale with a twist said Mayor Dave Burgess of the Mid Murray
“It is a beautiful drive from the Barossa or the Adelaide Foothills through Mannum to Sedan
and for a town so small, it delivers a massive market where people amaze and now make
the pilgrimage every year”.
Entry is on $5.00 for buyers and sellers with cars and small trailers are free registration with
only the entry fee applicable. Larger selling sites - $5 and $10. All buyers and sellers have
the chance of winning two lucky door prizes of $250.00 each.
