Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals

Carlisle PA Fairgrounds
Since 1986, the Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals has displayed the best import and kit cars in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond. In recent years, a simple event has transformed into an automotive festival. Live music, prizes and more have given the weekend an overhaul and 2013 was another great showcase of international automotive history. The Passport Program returned as did a massive array of clubs. More seminars were held onsite too giving the tent an always full feel to it. Guests like Peter Brock held court with patrons hanging on each word the legend shared about his experiences within the hobby.
Additional highlights included awards on Sunday plus a Saturday showcase of two machines, 100 years apart, making parade laps around the autocross track. Though this event has concluded, the next one is just 11+ months away, May 16-18, 2014.
