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.

Spring Carlisle & Auction was a Success!

What a weekend at Spring Carlisle! The event was sold out, so much so that when the 8,100 vending spaces filled up, 38 more were generated and quickly sold. From sun up to sun down nearly 100,000 guests meandered the grounds for all things automotive, plus unique collectibles, memorabilia and more.

Carlisle Auctions concluded one of its best events with 360+ consignments crossing the block. 65% of the consignments sold, with Burt Reynolds' Bandit Trans Am selling for $181,900 and in total, 4 million in sales were achieved. Auction totals and interest in other Carlisle Auctions backed events can be found at CarlisleAuctions.com or by calling 717-960-6400.

Though Spring Carlisle is a wrap, it's only the beginning for Carlisle Events in 2015. Ten events remain, including Fall Carlisle and Florida Fall AutoFest. Both are swap and vendor based events. If you're interested in getting involved, contact Carlisle Events today at 717-243-7855.

Save the Date for Import & Kit Nationals

Take a trip around the automotive world with the Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals. Many of the popular themes continue in 2015 (May 15-17), with Asian cars taking center stage as the feature country (or region in this case). The passport program returns too, with guests being able to win prizes simply by walking the grounds and enjoying the show.

A special toy drive plays a dual role in the event too. The Renault Club backs the Toys for Tots program and while TFT benefits 100%, so will car clubs. One of the criteria in deciding the Coolest Car Club award is the toy drive. Clubs who donate receive points per donation, and in turn, will improve their standing for award consideration.

With autocross, live music, cool cars, guests, seminars and more, what better way to spend a weekend than at Carlisle for the 2015 Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals.
