LATEST NEWS: Carlisle Events Acquires Zephyrhills Autofest Events
A Pair of Collector Car Events Push Company Total to 16 by 2013
Expansion is once again the theme for Carlisle Events in 2012 and the decade for that matter. Beginning in November of 2012 with the 28th Annual Fall AutoFest (November 8-11, 2012) in Zephyrhills, Florida and continuing with a similar event, Zephyrhills Winter AutoFest (February 21-24, 2013), Carlisle Events will own and operate the ever-popular gatherings held annually within the Sunshine State. This acquisition increases the amount of shows produced by Carlisle Events to 16, up from 10 as recently January 1, 2011.
"Carlisle Events has always been excited about the automobile industry," noted co-owner and co-founder Bill Miller, Jr. "Having grown up in the new car business and always appreciating collector cars, with Chip Miller as a partner, we ventured into the collector car hobby in 1974. Now, with a second generation of Millers leading the way, Chip's son Lance and my son Bill III, we've expanded our footprint outside of Carlisle. Events range from Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania to Auburn, Indiana and with our newest addition in Zephyrhills, Florida, I couldn't be happier with the direction of our company." Miller continued, "Having acquired the famous fall and winter events in Zephyrhills, I have to commend Mike Sierra and his family on all that they've put into the shows for nearly four decades. Carlisle Events will carry on that legacy beginning this fall and I want to thank all our loyal vendors and fans who have been part of the Carlisle family for so many years. I also want to invite them to enjoy the beautiful weather in sunny Florida this fall and winter by attending the Zephyrhills Swap Meet and Auction powered by Carlisle Events!"
