2020 CARLISLE FORD NATIONALS RESCHEDULED
New Dates – July 31-August 2
Friday, May 1, 2020
During the week of April 20, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced initial steps to “re-open” the Keystone State. While many aspects of the outlined measures offer an optimistic outlook for the coming weeks and months to Pennsylvanians, it also presents a potential timing conflict for events that host large-scale gatherings.
With this new information and out of a continued abundance of caution for the Carlisle community, Carlisle Events staff and Carlisle Ford Nationals attendees, the 2020 Carlisle Ford Nationals presented by Meguiar’s has been RESCHEDULED. The original dates were June 5-7, with the NEW DATES now occurring July 31-August 2, still at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds.
The new July 31-August 2 dates offer guests even more time to enjoy the biggest and best all-Ford event of its type. Nearly one month into the official start of summer, days will be longer, with historically sun-shiny skies blanketing the facility and the decades of Ford branded vehicles. It’ll also offer a unique atmosphere on Saturday night, August 1 as hundreds of Fords roll into downtown Carlisle for the Downtown Carlisle Association’s Ford Parade and Street Party.
Though the event has changed dates, themes and displays are still on as planned. This includes the annual Ford Nationals Select display, a 50th celebration of the Grabber, the 15th Anniversary of the Ford GT, a Euro Ford Garage that highlights the 50th of the Capri and 35th of the Merkur, a Thunderbird celebration and one focused on the Starliner too. Guests and certain other entertainment aspects of the event are being reviewed at this time, with any possible changes, updates or cancellations being shared via the Carlisle Ford Nationals web channels, including CarlisleEvents.com and the event’s Facebook page in the coming days/weeks.
As with any rescheduled event, all original tickets, car corral spaces, vending or National Parts Depot Showfield spaces will be honored.
“As a community and region, we are making progress, working with one common goal; that being to flatten the curve,” noted Carlisle Events co-owner Bill Miller. “Progress is such that our state’s governor has shared a plan to re-open the state and its economy. With that plan in place, we recognize the need for just a little bit more time before hosting large-scale events in Carlisle. As such, we have decided to reschedule this year’s Ford Nationals from June to July,” continued Miller. “We are getting there, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone in Carlisle this summer and beyond for our great events.”
During this event, as well as others on the schedule, Carlisle Events will continue to be proactive from a health and sanitation standpoint within the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds and Carlisle Expo Center.
