Fall Florida AutoFest Returns to Lakeland Nov. 10-12, 2017

November 6, 2017

Dear readers:

Eleven events down, one to go – that’s all that remains for Carlisle Events as part of wildly successful 2017 season. The team from Carlisle, Pa., is heading south to the Sunshine State to wrap it all up with Fall Florida AutoFest, Nov. 10-12, at the Sun ’n Fun complex in Lakeland. The three-day festivities include family fun, a car show, swap meet, car corral, collector car auction and more!

It all gets underway on Thursday, Nov. 9, with vendor and auction load-in. Once in position, this will anchor the fun, which commences at 8 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. Carlisle Auctions brings 400-plus classic and collectible rides, merchandise and collectibles to the auction block, while Carlisle Events offers hundreds of vending spaces and hundreds more vendors selling all things automotive.

While cars are for sale as they are within the auction, the car corral offers vehicles that are for sale by owner vs. to the highest bidder. This allows for negotiation, tire kicking and an overall once over that can’t always be accomplished within the fast-paced nature of an auction.

Family fun is a key element. Offering a nod to the Sun ’n Fun complex’s aeronautical roots, Fall AutoFest offers helicopter and airplane rides, a morning flyover as part of the national anthem, air stunt show and appearances by Patty Wagstaff, World Aerobatic Champion, Gene McNeely, AeroShell Aerobatic Team member and more. Wagstaff will also sign autographs and pose for photos. Additional family fun includes a wildlife show with Bwana Jim and the chance to check out the air museum.

Finally, what AutoFest event would be complete without the car show and Air & Coach Concours. These two show features welcome show cars, motor coaches, airplanes and more. The car show portion hosts hundreds of classics from around central Florida, while the Air & Coach display is an upscale, VIP gathering of motor coaches and their enthusiasts.

At 4175 Medulla Road in Lakeland, the Sun ’n Fun complex is easy to access from I-4, I-75, I-275, the Polk Parkway and U.S. 301.

For those that can’t make Lakeland in November, Carlisle Events returns on Feb. 23-25, 2018, for Winter AutoFest. Tickets for both Florida events as well details on every show promoted by Carlisle Events can be found at www.CarlisleEvents.com or call (717) 243-7855.
