Spring Carlisle 2019

For 2019, Spring Carlisle ran April 24-28 and welcomed over 100,000 guests. People came from all over to buy, sell and trade, while also catching up with old friends and making new ones.

The facility was already full of life early on Monday of event week. Wednesday ushered in the first day of the show under sunny skies and perfect spring weather. Spaces were packed with vendors, while aisles were crowded with shoppers. From the northern part of the car corral to the western part of the automotive flea market, the fairgrounds were bustling.

Pieces and parts were moving so fast that the most frequent call on staff radios was for the parts haulers, designed to help customers get a purchase from point A to point B.  Within the car corral, the automotive history was evident too. Rides for sale by owner spanned from early 1900 models to modern day, meaning over 100 years of history was available at Carlisle.

Friday gave guests yet another reason to make their way around the grounds, albeit while dodging a few rain drops. A bright spot of the day was a pair of cars on the stage.  One car, a 1967 Camaro, showcased THE definition of a barn find (because it was), while the other was a sharp looking Bandit Trans Am, on display via a local enthusiast to help promote the June 22 Bandit Jump happening as part of the Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals.

Saturday and Sunday saw Spring Carlisle wind down and close out.  The rain of Friday moved on, yielding a breezy, cool day for Saturday, while Sunday carried all the sun and fun that everyone would have hoped for all five days.

In addition to a great event on the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, the Carlisle Auctions team staged another collector car auction.  Spanning Thursday and Friday (April 25-26), the event saw 500+ consignments cross the block, tallying $5 million in sales with a 60% sell through rate.

Up next for Carlisle Events, its Import & Performance Nationals event which runs May 17-19, while Carlisle Auctions returns on June 22 for its second annual Summer Sale.  Complete details on the Carlisle Events show can be found at, while auction details can be found at
