Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals
June 26-27, 2020
Home to a diverse group of General Motor vehicles, from vintage muscle to the modern Camaro, Carlisle is the place to be in June. Buckle up for the Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals as there are many activities going on. Unique and rare vehicles are always part of the show schedule, there are automotive thrills too and you can even find yourself sitting behind the wheel of a top-fuel dragster as it goes through its warm-up process. Smell and FEEL the power first-hand at Carlisle.
Carlisle Events and the folks from the National Nostalgic Nova Club have teamed up to create a special meet within the Chevrolet Nationals show field. The annual Novas at Carlisle "show within a show" will be held throughout the weekend. Nova classes have a designated highlighted area and attendees are welcome to join in all the fun.
Beyond cars, the Carlisle Fairgrounds is known for its delicious food vendors. They offer great fair-style food such as pizza, hot dogs, funnel cakes, ice cream, BBQ, crab cakes, kettle corn and much more.
The fairgrounds will be packed and offer an automotive flea market with a wide variety of vendors, a car corral and more. Daily admission Friday and Saturday is $10. Children under 12 are free.
