Swapper’s Day

COVID-19 Information

August 3 2020:  After reviewing the recent trend of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the additional volunteers needed to keep our visitors and vendors safe, and the increasing risk that there would still be virus spread, the Johnstown Community Sportsman Club trustees have voted to cancel the 2020 Swappers Day scheduled for September 5, 6, and 7 2020.

We have examined every avenue we could to provide a safe experience for our loyal sellers and buyers, and have proceeded to this point hoping to see a better trend in the course of the virus.  We do not make this decision lightly, but believe it is important to the future of our Club, our army of volunteers, our Swappers Day vendors, and our visitors that we stay healthy and be there for each other next year.

We are encouraging vendors to roll over their site deposits until next year and hold their preferred spot on our grounds.  For those needing a refund, we will deduct a 10% administrative fee and will not guarantee your current spot at next year’s event.  Please email swappersday@jcscohio.org with your request, and we will process them in the order in which we receive them.

Thank you for your patience and support in this unprecedented time for us.

The Original Swappers Day

Held since 1944, the original Swappers Day – located at the Johnstown Community Sportsmans Club, 7357 Sportsman Club Road in Johnstown, Ohio – is one of the oldest, largest, most exciting flea markets in Ohio. If you CAN’T find what you’re looking for at Swappers Day, you just don’t really need it! We have over 750 vendor spaces, loads of concessions, and various other events for your entertainment.

Swappers Day festivities began simply as a group of sportsmen who wanted to race their prize dogs across a man-made pond at their club. Then, as the popularity of the event grew, participants started bringing items to swap, trade, and/or sell. Now, many many years later, we welcome tens of thousands of visitors each year. Come for the activities, go shopping, look for deals, enjoy “fair” food, or do some swapping of your own.

What do we do with the money?

Johnstown Community Sportsmans Club is a 501(c)-7 non-profit organization.

  • JCSC supports local charities including local food pantries and veterans’ orgainzations
  • We support organizations that are conservation-minded and outdoor activity based, such as The National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever, The Ruffed Grouse Society, etc.
  • We provide a location for other organizations to meet and have special events, including local Boy Scout troops, Cub Scouts, 4H, Sports Booster organizations, churches, Masonic Lodges, VFW, Hunters Education classes, and more.
  • We offer scholarships to seniors at local high schools
  • And of course we run our own club, which is based on the sharing and enjoyment of conservation and outdoor activities like Fishing, Archery, Shooting, Hunting, Dog competitions etc.
