Welcome to Carlisle Events, Your Enthusiast Destination

Carlisle Events, one of the world's largest presenters of collector car and truck events, is the preferred automotive destination for enthusiasts and collector car hobbyists worldwide! For over four decades, Carlisle Events has been a staple in the automotive community offering events for enthusiasts looking to find automotive parts, memorabilia and collector vehicles to fuel their passion. We currently host 13 events annually, with 9 taking place at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. Two events, Fall and Winter AutoFest, are held in November and February respectively in Florida, one event takes place at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds in Bloomsburg, PA and another at the Allentown Fairgrounds in Allentown, PA. These events draw enthusiasts from all over the world, and are fun for the entire family.

Winter AutoFest is a Wrap!

The 2015 edition of Winter AutoFest has wrapped as Carlisle Events and Carlisle Auctions promoted the four-day event for the last time in Zephyrhills. With sunny skies, aisles were packed with automotive enthusiasts and guests who came for varying reasons. They were either looking to find automotive pieces and parts within the swap meet, snag a classic or a project within the car corral, catch a piece of automotive history within the two-day auction or grab a bite to eat. The enthusiasm was so high that vending, car corral and auction lots were sold out!

The auction ran February 20-21 and welcomed 400+ classics across the block, all consigned under Carlisle Auctions’ popular FREE UNLESS SOLD guarantee. Top selling cars were a 1952 Bentley Mark VI ($74,550) and a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 ($57,250). In addition, 52% of consignments were sold and there was a large jump in bidders versus the 2014 event.

Save the Date for Spring Carlisle

Cold weather be gone! Spring (the season) officially starts on March 20 and Spring (Carlisle) isn’t long after, starting April 22. Cruise to Carlisle for a five-day celebration of all things automotive. The event draws nearly 100,000 guests for the first big shot in most cases at picking up those hard to find automotive pieces and parts, merchandise, collectibles, memorabilia and more. Plus, there are classic and project cars available at every turn.

If picking up a completed classic is more your speed, consider the neighboring collector car auction presented by Carlisle Auctions. Over 300 consignments are available to the highest bidder. Could that be you? You don’t have to go far to have fun and you don’t have to haggle a salesman for that special car you desire. Come to Carlisle for the thrill of the hunt, the camaraderie and the food. Call 717-243-7855 for all of the information.
