Fall & Winter AutoFest are on the move!
Carlisle Events, based in Pennsylvania, has been promoting some of the largest collector and classic car events in the world since 1974 and has been part of the Florida automotive scene since November of 2012, hosting two events annually. Now, with its fall show currently underway at Festival Park in Zephyrhills, Carlisle Events is proud to announce that beginning in November of 2015, both Zephyrhills AutoFest offerings will take place at the Sun n’ Fun complex in Lakeland, Florida and will be rebranded as Fall Florida and Winter Florida AutoFest respectively.
The move becomes official on November 13 at 5:30 p.m. as part of the conclusion of day one of Fall AutoFest. On hand will be Carlisle Events co-owner and co-founder Bill Miller, co-owner Lance Miller, the entire Carlisle Events staff who have traveled to Florida for the show as well as vendors and guests of the event. Once announced, enthusiasts can officially look forward to even bigger offerings by Carlisle Events at the Sun n’ Fun complex starting with Fall AutoFest in 2015. In fact, the size and growth of the show at Festival Park is what ultimately constituted the chance to move to the larger venue in Lakeland.
Historically speaking, Fall AutoFest and Winter AutoFest host three aspects which draw enthusiasts over four days. AutoFest shows host a swap meet (automotive themed flea market), car corral (classic cars for sale) and an auto auction. The auction, presented by Carlisle Auctions sees 300+ classics, past, present and future, cross the block and each is available to the highest bidder. Now, with the move to Lakeland, Carlisle Events will bring a collector car show to the event as well as an expanded foot print for additional vendors, activities and, since Sun n’ Fun is known for its air shows and festivals, Carlisle Events welcomes plane owners, planes, plane themed vendors, RVs, antique bicycles, women’s bingo and the Women’s Oasis. The oasis, known as the home away from chrome, provides non-automotive themed shopping options to better entice families to the event.
