Celebrate Summer With Corvettes at Carlisle
A Cumberland Valley staple, the annual Corvettes at Carlisle event is an absolute must-visit for car enthusiasts and their families.
The largest Corvette event in the world, the spectacular showcase features more than 5,000 Corvettes of every generation. Last year, the event drew more than 50,000 total guests to witness the construction of 200 red, white and blue Corvettes parked in the style of the American flag.
Seize an incredible shopping opportunity with the huge swap meet featuring a variety of vendors. The all-Corvette car corral lets you buy the car and everything that goes with it, including temporary tags and notary services so you can make deals directly with the owners. Experienced drivers can test Corvettes or compete in the autocross event or burnout contest – with the chance to be crowned the Carlisle King or Queen of the Hill!
Fun for the whole family, Corvettes at Carlisle boasts a kids’ section with crafts, contests and a play area. The Woman’s Oasis Tent offers massages, makeovers, shopping and more. Be sure to check out Manufacturers Midway and Installation Alley, two unique spots for fans of America’s classic sports car.
The peak of the multi-day event is the Corvette Parade on Saturday night (August 27) through Downtown Carlisle, leading to a street party with music, food and – of course – 400 participating Corvettes.
While you’re there, don’t miss your chance to enter a raffle for the chance to win a 2016 Stingray Coupe.
