CARLISLE, Pa. – The Spring Carlisle event will run April 22-26 and will once again welcome nearly 100,000 guests to the Carlisle, Pa., Fairgrounds to buy, sell and trade all things automotive. According to organizers, there are also activities the family can enjoy, a great array of food, automotive history on display and a thrilling collector car auction, presented by Carlisle Auctions.

Spring Carlisle brings people together from around the world who all share a common passion: the collector car hobby. The 8,100 vending space at the fairgrounds historically fill with thousands of vendors who are moving automotive pieces and parts, collectibles, merchandise and other hard-to-find items. In addition, there is a car corral with thousands of past, present and future classics for sale by owner. Onsite financing makes every purchase at Carlisle simple and the taxi and parts hauling services ease navigating the grounds.

Buying and selling aside, Spring Carlisle also hosts the future of the automotive hobby via the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow (HROT) engine challenge and some non-automotive shopping options with the Women’s Oasis. As HROT goes, high school-aged students from the region compete against the clock as they tear down and reassemble a Chevy small-block engine.  Top teams advance to a national finals in either Las Vegas or Indianapolis. In fact, the defending national champions from the Burton Center in Virginia will be competing at Spring Carlisle. Schools are encouraged to get involved today to better enhance this great competition.

Finally, yet another feature attraction for Spring Carlisle is the two-day collector car auction powered by Carlisle Auctions. Consignments continue to be taken via the Carlisle Auctions’ FREE UNLESS SOLD policy and the registration process remains fair and simple.  Due to demand, the quality and quantity of cars has increased, too.
