Come to Carlisle, PA, and join our enthusiastic team for a day of sharing our motoring passions with over 20,000 attendees at the 31st Annual Meeting of the Marques Motorshow. Now in our 9th consecutive year as guests of Carlisle's Harvest of the Arts Festival, we collectively transform West High Street into 'Artistry on Wheels.' Just like the dazzling artworks and handcrafted objects on display by numerous vendors, we know that our mobile art forms represent the creativity and craftsmanship that have inspired, entertained and educated generations in the American car culture. As the hometown of Carlisle Events, this is the perfect location for just such a gathering.

Artistry on Wheels celebrates the automobile's cultural impact upon society as rolling sculpture, not merely as a transportation tool. The Motorshow allows the public to visually sample your vehicle's beauty, power, and purpose. 

Artistry on Wheels is made up of two distinct vehicle groups:

  • One group is open to all British-made (or U.K.) vehicles in recognition of the original Meeting of the Marques Motorshow, held for many years at the Allenberry Resort in nearby Boiling Springs.
  • The other group is open to Sports Cars and Sports-Touring Cars representing geographic regions – classes for North American, European, Asian cars, and British Motorbikes. The 'Wild Card' class encompasses the repli-car community and any other automobile that does not fit into the abovementioned regions. In short, there is a place for anyone who wants to take part in the Motorshow.

Downtown Carlisle isn't just about the Harvest of the Arts festival on this day. In recent years, the resurgence of the downtown business district means that numerous and diverse restaurants and shops await you. Whether you favor American, Belgian, English, or Italian cuisines or the local brew scene - all are here. And as each year passes by, the number of quaint shops increases so that new treasures are always ready to explore. Many of these establishments are within easy walking distance of the Artistry on Wheels Motorshow.
