ALLENTOWN, PA – Carlisle Events kicked off its 2018 season with Auto Mania, Pennsylvania’s largest indoor and heated swap meet. The Allentown Fairgrounds came to life for its first big event of the season January 19-21 and in doing so, also hosted the largest swap meet footprint ever for this event.

With the growing footprint, combined with the always sold-out indoor area, the 2018 edition of Auto Mania got things going properly for the Carlisle Events team.

In addition to the swap meet, guests were also treated to a dozen or so cars for sale by owner.

The auction is the first of five slated for Carlisle Auctions in 2018 and as always, is powered by the FREE UNLESS SOLD guarantee as well as other great conveniences related to being part of a Carlisle Auction.
