The first annual small animal swap was held at Jacob’s Cave in June 1979. With over 36 years of growth, it is now the largest swap meet in the Midwest and boasts attendance of over 30,000 people at each event. Not only are there small animals for sale or trade, but there is buying, selling and trading of an enormous variety of new and used items.
