Fall Carlisle concludes 2021 Carlisle Car Show season starting September 29

Carlisle Events will host five days of buying, selling and trading at the Carlisle, PA fairgrounds September 29 - October 3.

Carlisle, PA – Car show and swap meet season concludes a record-setting 2021 season in the form of Fall Carlisle presented by eBay Motors, September 29-October 3 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. This five-day affair hosts car lovers of all types, each looking to buy, sell and trade all things automotive. You never know what you’ll find at Carlisle, that is for sure. Hidden gems include items for the shop, the man cave or even the she shed. Expect the unexpected in Carlisle as you browse the grounds, enjoying the thrill of the hunt. As shopping goes there are plenty of options at Fall Carlisle, including the “Anymotive” vending area. Anymotive carries a powersports, non-car themed feel and is perfect for boats, RVs, ATVs, motorcycles, tractors, snow mobiles, etc. If it has a motor and it can go or it’s an accessory to help make it go, it’s welcome here.

The Carlisle PA Fairgrounds are populated with vendors offering millions of automotive pieces and parts with buyers and sellers alike coming to shop and sell. By visiting the vendors, you just might find things that you didn’t even know you needed, all at bargain pricing. In addition to the parts, collectibles, and memorabilia, there are cars for sale within the car corral, meaning buyer and seller can work face to face, most times consummating the sale very quickly. It’s a sensory experience with Fall Carlisle too, as buyers can literally see the part they want to buy, touch it and earn that face-to-face trust that comes with an event like Fall Carlisle. There’s even a Manufactures Midway with some of the top companies in the hobby.

The aforementioned car corral isn’t the only way to find your first or next classic! The process may be easy when dealing person to person, but it’s JUST AS SIMPLE when you work with Carlisle Auctions.
