It’s Almost Time For The 2023 Carlisle Chrysler Nationals!

The Carlisle Chrysler Nationals was a massive event in 2022 with over 3,000 vehicles invading the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. Well, the goal for 2023 is to eclipse that mark and you can be a part of the Mopar madness July 14-16 when the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals roars to life. There will be plenty of show cars to check out, vendors to visit, and parts to check out in the automotive flea market.

If you want to extend your Carlisle Chrysler Nationals fun, you’ll want to arrive on July 13th and check out the kick-off party that’s being held at the Carlisle Expo Center. The Mopar Rebellion Car Club is hosting this event and it’s free to attend. There will be a DJ spinning some tunes, food on the grill, and lots of fun events planned for the kick-off party.

When the gates swing open and the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals begin, you’ll be able to check out the Showfield that’s filled with great cars, along with the special themed displays that include the Malaise Era, High School Mopars, 1973 50th Anniversary, and a general Featured Vehicle Display. If that wasn’t enough, you can also visit the Survivors Tent which will feature rare Mopars owned by the legendary Herb McCandless.

There will be more than just cars on display at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, you’ll get to see Mopars in action too. Atturo Tires is sponsoring a rolling burnout and donut contest, plus you’ll also get to see the Real Street Shootout autocross event. The famous Carlisle Chrysler Nationals impromptu parades will also be rolling around the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds all weekend too.

Do you need some parts? If so, the massive automotive flea market will be open during the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals once again. You’ll find tons of new parts and used parts in the flea market that can help you finish your project. The manufacturers midway will be lined with some of the biggest automotive aftermarket companies as well.
