Fall Carlisle is a Wrap! Returns SEP. 30 - OCT. 4, 2015

Fall Carlisle is where it all started in 1974 and during the days spanning October 1-5 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, the Miller's creation celebrated its 40th Anniversary. Throughout Fall Carlisle, charter vendors were celebrated, as were guests with specific activities on Friday and Saturday. In addition, the swap meet was hopping daily as vendors moved merchandise of all types. The car corral was also busy and showcased automotive history both on display and for sale by owner.

Further highlights included a special car display in and around Building G with cars spanning Carlisle's years of operation (1974-2014) and Carlisle Events welcomed a production crew from the new Velocity Channel program, The Appraisers, which debuts in 2015. Though Fall Carlisle is a wrap, the event returns in 2015 during the weekend of September 30-October 4.In the meanwhile, Spring Carlisle opens the Carlisle based season, running April 22-26, 2015.
