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.

Import & Kit Nationals was a success!

Where else can you go around the world in just three days besides the Carlisle Fairgrounds? You can do just that and get a history lesson along the way as part of the Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals. Carlisle welcomed the coolest import and kit cars from around the world, plus special guests, displays and seminars. Asian cars took center stage with guests seeing some rare gems from the ‘30s, plus many more from the Far East.

Autocross was popular too, as dozens of drivers pushed their rides to the limit throughout the weekend, while other guests browsed the swap meet. Special guests also held court, hosting autograph sessions, seminars, Q&A sessions and more. In all, Import & Kit Nationals weekend was a success and continues to grow, with both show cars and vendors. Save the date, because German cars are featured when the 2016 show takes place, May 13-15.
