Sky Village Swap Meet

The Swap Meet in Yucca Valley is a world of its own; a dense shanty-like town of booths and stands packed with curios, desert junk, and overgrown cactus gardens. In the heart of the swap meet is the Crystal Cave—a masterpiece by Bob Carr, owner and creator of the Sky Village Swap Meet.

The Swap Meet is also home to the HDTS HQ—a visitor's center and creative hub where artists, craftsmen, visionaries, and friends engage with the high desert community through creative projects and performances. You can pick up a copy of our driving map to HDTS projects and other local sites of interest at the HQ every Saturday from 9 am–1 pm—and please check our website regularly to see what special events we have on the calendar.

Interested in organizing a project at the HQ? We are open to a wide variety of projects to present at the HQ, but are particularly interested in work that engages with our local community (who have a strong presence at the Swap Meet), encouraging their participation in a contemporary practice. Proposals are accepted via email and are reviewed year round.

Directions: 7028 Theater Road (just off Hwy 247, right behind Barr Lumber), Yucca Valley, CA 92286; 760-365-2104
