There will be a new Super Sunday Swap Meet added to the Tanque Verde Swap Meet beginning on Sunday, October 21. The decision to add monthly special events on Sundays attests to another successful year of business, marking Tanque Verde’s 37th year. Tanque Verde boasts more than 800 vendors selling produce, vintage, antiques, new products and clothing, with a retro merry-go-round and rides to entertain the whole family. The first Sunday event will also feature performances by Danza Azteca Callpulli Tonantzin, an authentic Aztec entertainment experience, a dance performance by Ballet Folklorico Tapatio and an array of other musical entertainment spread across the Tanque Verde Swap Meet’s 30 acres. While 19 of those acres are dedicated to vending and the remaining acreage is for parking, visitors are advised to arrive early as the parking area has been known to fill quickly.
The Essential Details:
The first of the monthly Sunday swaps begins at 11 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m. The Sundays are planned for the third Sunday of every month and take place at 4100 South Palo Verde Road, Tucson, AZ 85714.
