Carlisle Events Announces 2019 Event Dates and Schedule

As Carlisle Events gets ready for the 2018 season, one typical aspect of event promotion has been missing: The schedule for 2019. That lack has now been rectified. Carlisle Events is pleased to announce its 2019 schedule, which features just one change - the elimination of the Lakeland, Fla. fall show, also known as Fall AutoFest. The popular winter offering in February remains. The organization is also looking into options for a stand-alone auction in Florida in November of this year. 

2019 will kick off off Carlisle Events 45th season in mid-January with Penn.’s “Largest Indoor/Heated Swap Meet,” Auto Mania. The three-day swap meet takes place at the Allentown Fairgrounds and is a perfect way to beat the winter blues for east coast car enthusiasts. Next, the second “road event” of the year occurs: Winter Lakeland AutoFest at the SUN ‘n FUN Campus in Florida. This weekend hosts a two-day car auction powered by Carlisle Auctions, a multi-day swap meet and car corral and other great automotive features.

Two months after that, the “home-based” portion of the Carlisle Events schedule begins.  Every event listed below takes place at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds or neighboring Carlisle Expo Center. Events like the Carlisle Ford Nationals, presented by Meguiar’s, Carlisle Chrysler Nationals and Corvettes at Carlisle, presented by Corvette America, are the largest of their type in the world. Additionally, the all-new Carlisle Auctions Summer Sale returns to the June schedule as a stand-alone auction event.
