Carlisle, PA – The world’s “largest” all Corvette themed weekend returns August 26-28, 2021 to the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds and this year, everyone is looking forward to simply being at Carlisle. Corvettes at Carlisle presented by Top Flight Automotive has been hosting Corvettes and Corvette lovers since 1982, but after a tumultuous 2020, so many are eager to come to Carlisle to simply celebrate the culture with their car, their friends and the community. Not only does this year’s event offer that, it offers great displays, guests, charitable ventures and a chance to bring the cars into downtown Carlisle once more.
Three days long and starting on August 26, Corvettes at Carlisle hosts the C8 and every other generation of Corvette on the grounds. Special features for 2021 include those focused on the Callaway AeroBody Corvette, a 50-year look back at 1971 Corvettes, a 25th anniversary of the Grand Sport Corvette, the Solid Axle Corvette Club National Convention, NCRS Gallery Display and the annual Chip’s Choice featured vehicle display.
As Chip’s Choice goes, the theme for 2021 is a salute to law enforcement. The hand-picked gallery brings together about a dozen Corvettes that are owned, driven, shown or otherwise cared for by members of the law enforcement community. In addition, there will be an on-site law enforcement parade, a stage presentation which welcomes not only Corvette enthusiasts in law enforcement, but local officers from the surrounding counties and of course the Chip’s Choice cars.
Speaking of parades, Carlisle Events and the Downtown Carlisle Association are excited to share that the annual Corvette parade and street party returns on Saturday, August 28. Cars will roll from the fairgrounds around 7 p.m. and cruise into the downtown area before parking for owners and community members to mix and mingle as the sun sets on the show.
Additional elements of Corvettes at Carlisle include a large swap meet and a Corvette centric car corral, perfect for parts or car shopping, the chance to support the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation, giveaways, parts installs and FREE seminars.
As giveaways go, the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation has partnered with the Lancaster County Corvette Club to raffle off a 2021 C8 Corvette with proceeds benefitting CMAF and Claire House. Tickets are just $125 each and the winning number will be drawn in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Lottery’s Pick 3 (000-999) on Saturday, August 28. Another C8 at Carlisle will be awarded later in the year, as the CMAF supports its second annual Corvette Contest. This C8 is a 60th Anniversary tribute to the legendary 1960 #3 Cunningham Corvette that won its class in the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France. The CMAF also sees support on August 27 by way of its annual Corvettes for Chip dinner, held at the neighboring Carlisle Expo Center.
On the seminar side of things, Paul Koerner and his Corvette Mechanic team return to host FREE diagnostic sessions and how-to tech talks on multiple Corvette generations, while Rick Malone of Spring Mountain Motor Resort/Ron Fellows Driving School offers driving technique tips.
Finally, the parades aren’t the only way wheels will be in motion. Corvettes at Carlisle hosts the King of the X autocross competition presented by Lingenfelter Performance Thursday, Friday and Saturday and there’s even a rolling exhaust contest.
