Showfield How-To

We appreciate you coming to Carlisle! We’re glad to have you. To make your visit better than ever, we've created this how-to set of instructions. Should you have additional questions, please let us know. If you have any other questions, check out our main FAQ, or give us a call at 717‐243‐7855.


Gate Entrance

We ask that you pass through our main gate – Gate #3. You may enter 1000 Bryn Mawr Road, Carlisle PA 17013 into your GPS or an online mapping program to find it easily.

What to Do With Your Window Sticker

Before you arrive at the gate, please place the window sticker on the driver’s side upper corner of your windshield.

If You Forget or Lose Your Window Sticker

Carlisle Events issues only one Showfield sticker and if lost/forgotten, you'll be required to purchase a replacement sticker. The cost will be equal to what you originally paid when registering for the show.

Apply the Window Sticker to Your Showfield Car, and Not on Your Trailer or Tow Vehicle?

Please do not put the sticker on any vehicle other than your show vehicle.

Where to Go After Entering the Gate

Our staff will be there to help you navigate to the designated parking area. You’ll be guided from the gate forward.

You've Parked! Now Pick Up Your Goody Bag

Welcome to Carlisle! After your trip into town, you may be tired, thirsty or hungry. Make yourself at home. Also, once parked, you are welcome to proceed on foot to Guest Services which is located next to the grandstand. Once there, present your coupon/receipt for your Goody Bag and all other appropriate items (e.g. dash card). As applicable, your judging form will be available for pick up at this time as well.

New To Carlisle? We Can Get You Up to Speed!

We’re glad to have you as our guest. In fact, we imagine this will be one of many future trips to Carlisle. Please see the Advance Arrival Planner for things to do, maps, prices, and more!

Placing a ‘FOR SALE’ Sign on Your Car?

‘FOR SALE’ signs are not permitted on the Showfield. If you would like to sell your vehicle, please call 717‐243‐7855 to reserve a Car Corral space where the buyers that you will see will be shopping for cars. Many services are available to aid in the sales process (e.g. onsite notary and banking services ).
