Lake County Musician's Swap Meet
Central Florida's Premier Event for Musicians and Music Lovers.
The monthly Lake County Musician's Swap Meet brings together dealers, collectors, musicians and the general public for an afternoon of fun with a little business on the side where everyone can buy, sell or trade musical instruments and equipment and play a little music.
Are you a music lover, but not a musician? Come on in and listen to the music being played, try the delicious food, or just enjoy the fabulous outdoor setting. Bring your favorite folding chair or sit on one of the many picnic tables located right by the Jam Stage.
Our event takes place, rain or shine, from 8 am until 5 pm on the second Sunday of each month. The Musician's Swap Meet is held under the big covered pavilion at Renninger's Antiques Center on Rt. 441 in Mount Dora.
Admission for the general public is just $2 from 8 am until 4 pm. No admission charge after 4pm.
Admission is free for any children under 14 years old. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
You may carry in one item (such as a guitar, amplifier, microphone, saxophone, etc.) to sell or trade. If you have additional items that you wish to sell or trade, you will be charged an additional $2 for each item carried in. If you have multiple items, please consider getting a dealer's booth or one of our tailgating spaces (see below).
There is ample free parking for the general public, plus a reserved disabled parking area close to the gate. There is are two ATMs close by. Some of our dealers now take credit and debit card sales.
The Musician's Jam is from noon until 5 pm. A pa system, mics, amps, and drums are provided. Bring your instrument and join in. Join our jam hosts, play by yourself, with other musicians, or your band.We are open to any kind of music (must be family friendly).
Our food vendors offer a full breakfast and lunch menu. Cold canned beer is available after noon for the adults, for just $2.25 a can (Bud or Bud Light). Beer is also available by the bucket (five cans for just $10).
DEALER and TAILGATING spaces
Dealer booths are $20 and are approx. 10' x 15' and include two antique market style wooden tables. Additional tables are available for $5 each. Your dealer booth fee includes two adult passes and one parking space (inside the gate) per booth. Dealers may set up any time after 7:30 am. Dealers have a parking area close to the pavilion.
Tailgating spaces (where you sell out of the back of your car) are available for just $10. Tailgating spaces do not have access to power. We suggest that you bring your own pop-up tent in order to keep both you and your items out of the Florida weather.
