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.

Auto Mania is a Wrap

One show down, 12 to go! The 2015 Carlisle Events season concluded its first event of the year with Auto Mania at the Allentown Fairgrounds. The event drew thousands over the course of the weekend and again, packed Ag Hall. Indoor vending space was once again sold out and guests came from the region over to find a deal on tools, parts, merchandise, memorabilia, collectibles and more. With temperatures and Mother Nature generally cooperating, PA’s largest indoor heated swap meet was able to stretch its legs outside too, offering even more sales space for merchandise and cars where enthusiasts could continue to shop.

As always, the first event of the season was a smashing success and has helped pave the way for what should be an awesome 2015 season for Carlisle Events. Save the date for the 2016 event because Auto Mania returns January 15-17. Call 717-243-7855 today for information.

Carlisle Events Returns to Florida

Carlisle Events returns to the Sunshine State with Winter AutoFest, February 19-22 at Festival Park in Zephyrhills. The grounds will be bursting at the seams with enthusiasts, vendors and millions of automotive pieces and parts. While Winter AutoFest is and always will be an event that’s focused on the swap meet, car corral and two-day collector car auction presented by Carlisle Auctions, it’s also a place to go for family fun and an education.

Winter AutoFest offers an automotive timeline that you can show to your kids. Talk about your cars as a youth and show them just how cool the classics are. Plus, you and your kids can get behind the wheel of a NASCAR simulator and see just how good you could be on a track. AutoFest also offers special race cars on display and great food. Get involved by jumping to the event page for more details.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Mid-size returns with spirit

By Mike Blake - Carlisle Events

The mid-size pick-up truck segment seemed to have lost its spirit and public appeal. But as consumers are thinking that smaller might be better at times, Chevrolet has returned to the small-package pick-up that it discontinued after 2012, the Colorado, by re-imagining the mid-size it first brought to the world in 2004 to replace the Chevy S-10 compact pick-up. Thinking outside the truck box, Chevrolet resisted the impulse to build a “baby Silverado” by developing Colorado-specific architecture with a spirited demeanor.
