CARLISLE, Pa. – Car owners, vendors and a few thousand automotive enthusiasts will converge on Columbia County and the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds for the first-ever Bloomsburg Nationals powered by Carlisle Events weekend. The event takes place Aug. 10-12 and is expected to feature nearly 1,000 cars, trucks and motorcycles of varying makes, models, styles and sizes. The event will also highlight various automotive and entertainment options, making the weekend suitable for show goers of all ages.
Bloomsburg weekend will launch with a kickoff party Thursday evening at Quaker Steak & Lube, followed by the official start of the weekend on Friday. Friday will usher in various cars and car buffs on grounds for the first of a three-day celebration. As part of the weekend, attendees can traverse the grounds and take a trip back in time via the Fun Field and swap meet. The 227-acre fairgrounds at Bloomsburg will host not only some of the finest cars in the region, but also vendors selling collectables as well as automotive pieces and parts best suited for restoration or modification projects.
Saturday features more great showfield displays as well as a Saturday evening country concert. In addition to the evening activities, the weekend will host great interactive options such as the burnout and flamethrower contest, slowest drags, teeter-totter competition, judged Fun Field with prizes and more.
“The Carlisle Events team is really excited about our newest addition, the Bloomsburg Nationals,” said Lance Miller, co-owner of Carlisle Events. “We haven’t had the opportunity to start an event from a clean slate in many, many years and this event allows us to really evaluate the property and do what we do best by laying out the perfect automotive event.”
