accessible from Turnpike I-81 or I-83, the Carlisle Fairgrounds offers a 150-acre
complex. Features include both indoor and outdoor facilities, a food court as well
24-hour security and medics.
Our events attract 40,000 to 120,000 visitors on any given weekend mostly arriving
by vehicle. The total volume of vehicles you experience is comparable to that of
any major sporting event and/or concert. With this in mind, we highly encourage
all guests to allow sufficient travel time.
To help our guests navigate the interstates and/or highways in the immediate area,
we recommend that you download our directions
to bring with you on your trip. Although the directions provided through major mapping
sites and software are the most direct routes to the Carlisle Fairgrounds, you may
find that the alternate directions will provide a less congested route.
