Imports rule for the weekend at Carlisle Fairgrounds

More than 1,000 import and performance cars on display


More than 1,000 cars turned out for the 2020 Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals, staged from August 14-16 at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Pennsylvania.

Among the features were a celebration of 100 Years of Mazda and 50 years of the Datsun/Nissan Z.

On the show field, cars were parked together by country of origin. 

“The geographical placement allows guests to walk the grounds and essentially the automotive world,” Carlisle Events noted in its post-event news release.

Among car clubs, Saabs at Carlisle had the largest turnout while Street Distortionz took “coolest club” honors for the weekend.

Current plans call for the 2021 event to return to its traditional May (14-16) dates.


Next up at Carlisle this year is Corvettes at Carlisle, scheduled for August 27-30, with the Fall Carlisle wrapping up the Pennsylvania car-show season September 30 to October 4.
