Annual Corvettes at Carlisle Show
Draws Thousands from Around the
CARLISLE, PA –
The final specialty show for the
Carlisle Events’ season has come and
gone and as has been the case since
1982, Corvettes at Carlisle helped
wrap this portion of the schedule
with a bang. Though three events
remain for Carlisle Events, this is
the last one with a dedicated show
field, in this case, America’s
Sports Car – the Corvette. Over the
course of three days, August 22-24,
the grounds came to life and honored
the past, present and future of the
Corvette brand. At Carlisle were
year one models, pre-production 2015
Z06 coupes and convertibles and
everything in between. Great
displays served as an accessory to
the event as well and helped
continue to draw enthusiasts from
around the world.
Corvettes at Carlisle is branded as
a three-day event, but passions run
deep with those who attend and as
such, guests were coming onsite as
early as Wednesday, with vendors
setting up even earlier. Thursday
during event weekend was as busy, if
not busier than a Saturday at some
other shows promoted by Carlisle
Events and when Thursday is that
good for early-bird day, Friday is
even better! When the gates
officially opened at 7 a.m. Friday
morning, cars cruised onsite nonstop
for a myriad of reasons.
Popular stops included the 50th
anniversary display of 1964
Corvettes, the CERV II rear engine
Corvette that sat within that group,
a unique Corvette Challenge Series
display, race prepared Corvettes and
the NCRS Gallery in Building G.
Thousands of Corvettes were part
of the non-judged Fun Field and a
select group positioned themselves
in the NCCC judged area for Sanction
Sevens judging and recognition.
Between those honors and everyone
else who earned a celebrity pick on
the Fun Field, the Sunday awards
parade was packed with happy
Corvette owners and their beautiful
Along with the cool cars on the Fun Field, a dozen or so more were
spotlighted within Building T as
part of Chip’s Choice. The 2014
theme was centered on cars that have
brought together family and/or
friends and have created or
solidified unbreakable bonds and
ties all because of the Corvette.
Finally, what Corvette show would be
complete without some competition
and a parade of awesome machinery?
Friday of the show, a handful of
cars participated in the burnout
competition, while Saturday welcomed
a dozen young ladies as part of the
beauty contest. The real crescendo
came via the Downtown Carlisle
Corvette Parade and Street Party
Saturday night. Some 400 cars lined
the streets and were joined by
thousands of onlookers. There was
even some live music to take the fun
into the night.
Though the 2014 show has come and
gone, that doesn’t mean the Corvette
theme has concluded. Carlisle
Events wraps its home-based schedule
with Fall Carlisle, October 1-5. As
part of this flagship 40th
Anniversary celebration, a special
1974-2014 automotive timeline will
be on display and will include some
cool Corvettes from the past 40
years. Otherwise, next year’s show
is in the planning stages with the
event running August 28-30, 2015.
