Explore Corvettes and trucks all in one place at the Carlisle Events.

The Carlisle Events is the largest car, truck and motorcycle collector event in the United States, and the show attracts people from all over every year. The Events were initiated by vintage car enthusiasts, Bill Miller Jr. and Chip Miller, who noticed the need for the Events. The two united to create an event for car and truck enthusiasts, and started the first Events in 1974 at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.

Today, the mecca for car lovers is still held at the fairgrounds and has grown exponentially since its beginning. There are more than 8,000 vendors and eight shows for different interests such as the famous Corvettes at Carlisle, Carlisle Truck Nationals and even a bike fest. The Events rakes in close to $100 million each year, which helps boost Carlisle's economy.
