Carlisle Fairgrounds Alternative DirectionsEasily 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.
