Winter AutoFest takes place at the ultra-spacious SUN ‘n FUN Campus in Lakeland, Florida. By coming to Lakeland and Winter AutoFest, you’re not just coming to an automotive themed weekend, you’re coming to an event that is unlike anything of its type in the region. It’s fun for all ages and it doesn’t matter if you’re a die-hard gearhead or part-time enthusiast, this event is suitable for everyone. The weekend gives you two days of collector car auction excitement. As seen on TV, you bet! Find your first or next classic with Carlisle Auctions. There are 400+ consignments to pick from and Carlisle Auctions has a reputation of connecting car with car lover in the blink of an eye. If the late great Burt Reynolds can put his faith in Carlisle Auctions, you can too! 

In addition, there is a trio of car events. The NCRS welcomes Corvettes to Lakeland for their Winter Regional Meet and the Imperial Mustang Club of Polk County hosts hundreds of Mustangs AND a P51 Mustang airplane. In addition, Carlisle Events gives you a FREE CAR CRUISE-IN. Looking for car parts? Walk the grounds as vendors offer millions of pieces and parts for sale. Go the extra mile to find the hard to find! There’s a great array of food, displays, guests and more at Winter AutoFest. Plus, Carlisle Events will tip its cap to what SUN ‘n FUN is all about, aeronautical excitement. The onsite museum will be open during the event, there will be helicopter rides and more air themed fun. Each year will bring something different, so be sure to get involved today!
