The site of a cowboy rodeo in the 1920s, a hot-rod showcase in the '30s and '40s, and a racetrack that once hosted a NASCAR series in the '90s, the Saugus Speedway's current attraction is an entirely different kind of outdoor spectacle: the Santa Clarita Swap Meet, held Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays on the racetrack grounds. Now in its 50th year, the suburban swap meet's slogan is “everything under the sun,” including farmers market produce, garage-sale bargains and flea-market finds from antiques and practical gadgets to designer duds and knockoff novelties. If you're lucky, you might even stumble upon rock & roll treasure — like the set of unpublished, candid photographs of The Rolling Stones that was discovered here last year and turned into a buzzed-about exhibition at downtown's Dilettante gallery. 22500 Soledad Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, 91350.
