Are you a member of a local, regional, national or web-based car club? If so, we invite you to host your gathering during one of our events held at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds.

Carlisle Events hosts many of the top automotive shows in the country and a large part of our success comes from the energy, passion and excitement of our car clubs. This year, hundreds of clubs will compete for various prizes and awards. As part of bringing your club to an event at Carlisle, you instantly become part of one of the most enjoyable automotive outings in the region. Clubs are monitored and hosted by our knowledgeable, professional staff; all working in conjunction with your group for timely coordination and to ensure an enjoyable weekend.

Carlisle Events is offering special status to clubs who regularly attend our events. Please submit your club to be considered a Carlisle Officially Recognized Club!

It’s one thing to be a club at Carlisle. It’s another to be officially recognized by your show’s event manager as an Officially Recognized Club of Carlisle Events. Now, you can be part of the “Who’s Who” of car clubs online and on grounds. By filling out the car club submission form, your club is in the running to be recognized and with that, a few honors will be bestowed upon you. First, you’ll have been handpicked by your event manager. Secondly, you’re club will be listed alphabetically online, joining other handpicked selections. Not every club will be accepted. We’re looking for clubs that are sizeable and make an impact at our events and as a club. Does your club have what it takes?

The Coolest Club Hangout Award is presented to a Club participating in the Club Tent Program with the most creative Club Tent display. In addition to the display you must also be an example of what Carlisle Events is all about: HAVING FUN! The Coolest Club Hangout award is a banner for your Club to proudly display at Carlisle, at your home gatherings and at any other events your group attends.


Tent rentals are available at most specialty events to use as your club headquarters. We offer free or discounted tents to clubs who register a specific number of showfield cars as a way of showing our appreciation for club participation. The tent program is based on car club vehicle Gate-n-Go Registration and is at the sole descretion of event management. Contact us at 717.243.7855 to check participation levels and availability details. Program NOT available for Corvettes at Carlisle.



Are you up for the challenge - the Club Challenge that is? Carlisle Events challenges all clubs to show their strength in numbers. Come one, come all and the top three clubs (based on number of registered show vehicles) are recognized at each event's awards parade. Further, the top three also get a special banner which can be displayed when you come back to Carlisle, or with your club at other events. Contact us today for more details.
