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.

Fall AutoFest is a Wrap!

The 2014 Carlisle Events season has concluded with a successful Zephyrhills Fall AutoFest, November 13-16. The weekend hosted a swap meet, car corral, collector car auction and a motorcycle stunt show with XDL Championship rider Josh Borne. The swap meet offered a little bit of something for everyone who wanted to buy, sell or trade! Adjacent to the swap meet was the car corral, which hosted a few hundred classics, all for sale by owner. From classic to modern day, the array of cars was impressive. The theme of awesome cars continued as Carlisle Auctions moved 300+ gems across the block. In doing so, more than 50% of those cars sold and a 1966 Corvette and a 1957 Thunderbird were top sellers, moving for $73,991.

This was also the last Fall AutoFest show to be hosted at Zephyhills. Next year's event will take place in the bigger and better Lakeland, Fl location.

2015 Ford Escape: Versatile compact crossover

By Mike Blake - Carlisle Events

Ford brought a “little sister” to its sport-utility line-up in 2000, when it launched its “Baby Explorer,” called the Escape. It was created to be versatile and compact, compared to the larger sports-utes that dominated the scene. The Escape has matured, and now in its third generation, the compact crossover is still versatile and is the Blue Oval’s top-selling crossover. Manufactured at Ford’s Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Kentucky, Escape is no longer a boxy uninspired-looking sports-ute. Redesigned for 2013, Escape continues this generation in 2015 with sporty sculpturing that combines round and sleek styling cues with artistic body creases, a...
