Fall Carlisle & Auction
September 27-October 1, 2023
Fall Carlisle plays host to collector and classic automotive enthusiasts who travel to the 82-acre Carlisle, PA, Fairgrounds to buy, sell and celebrate all things automotive. This is a fun-filled event for guests of all ages.
While exploring the grounds and the 8,100 vending spaces, you will marvel at the vast array of items for sale. Carlisle is the place to purchase any of the 2,000 vehicles within the car corral and deal directly with the car owner to work out the best price. Fall Carlisle also offers a two-day collector car auction powered by Carlisle Auctions, and this, in addition to the car corral, is a great way to start a new collection or add to an existing one—all at an affordable price point.
The fairgrounds offers great fair-style food such as pizza, hot dogs, funnel cakes, ice cream, BBQ, and much more! Visit CarlisleTickets.com for your discounted spectator admission tickets & event passes. Children 12 and under are free. For more information regarding Fall Carlisle, visit CarlisleEvents.com.
