Fall Carlisle

Fall Carlisle plays host to thousands of collector and classic automotive enthusiasts, who travel to the 150-acre Carlisle PA Fairgrounds from all points of the globe to buy, sell and celebrate all things automotive. This is a fun-filled weekend the entire family will enjoy.

While exploring the grounds and 8,100 vending spaces, you will marvel at one of the largest automotive flea markets in the world. Carlisle is the place to purchase any of the 2,000 vehicles at the car corral and deal directly with the car owner to work out the best price. Fall Carlisle also offers a three-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, crab cakes, kettle corn and much more! Admission Wednesday-Saturday is $12 with a $7 Sunday special.  Or pick up an event pass for $35. Children 12 and under are free.
