For almost 30 years now the Carlisle Fair Grounds in Carlisle, Pennsylvania has played host to one of the biggest and best in Corvette extravaganzas; Corvettes of Carlisle. Corvettes of Carlisle is an annual gathering of Corvette enthusiasts of all generations and the event is simply filled with endless activities for all ages that are all related to the greatest American Muscle car ever made; the Corvette.
Each year the show brings in over 4,000 Corvettes of all different years and gives those who love their Corvettes a chance to show off what they have. Additionally there is an opportunity for anyone interested in tuning up their Vettes to have some tuning done while at the show.
There is also a huge swap meet where you can turn your unwanted Vette parts into money or find a really good deal on some parts that you have been looking for to spruce up your Corvette. You may even be able to find someone who wants to swap parts with you for a true win, win scenario.
All weekend long there is exciting contests and shows that take place. Contest range from a Corvette Show competition to a burn out competition and so much more. However, the biggest thrill of all is getting to ride in the endless sea of Corvettes that makes up the annual Carlisle Corvette Parade.
If you don’t have a Corvette yet or you want to get rid of an extra one then Corvettes of Carlisle is the place for you. There is an annual Corvette Corral where buyers and sellers can come together, make a deal, and see pink slips get signed over to a new happy owner. Pair that with the chance to win a Corvette (one is given away each year) and you can’t miss.
This year the Corvettes of Carlisle will take place August 27th to August 29th. Tickets are only $14.00 per day or you can obtain a weekend pass for $40.00. Little ones eight and under get in free.
This year a special tribute is going to be paid to the troops and to America as well. As they have for the past two years, the Miller family who runs the Carlisle events will put together Corvettes to make a huge American flag. This year they are going above and beyond and taking 158 total Corvettes to make the flag and this will beat the first years total by 54 Vettes. All the Corvettes involved will belong to those at the show so if you have a silver, white, red, or blue Corvette you can register to be a part of this great tradition.
The Corvettes of Carlisle show is a wonderful opportunity to get your Corvette fill all in one weekend. This year’s event is promised to be bigger and better than ever and with something for the whole family at the show there is no reason not to attend. If you haven’t gone to the Corvettes of Carlisle yet you are truly missing out. Every Corvette enthusiast should attend this unbelievable show at least once in their lifetime.
