Kids at Carlisle

Kids at Carlisle is our way of inviting all kids and families to explore, learn, and most importantly... have fun at our events!

Kids are king of the road at Carlisle. All kids ages 12 and under get free admission to all of our events. Stop at any ticket gate on your way into our shows to pick up a free "kids goody bag voucher." Take that voucher to our guest services building (next to the stage) for a fun-packed goody bag full of activities and kid-friendly items (while supplies last- limit one per child, child must be present.)

Once you've picked up your goodies, check out the activities list during each event. You can find these activities here on our website in advance, as well as in our printed event guides in-person. Our kids-friendly activities will be marked with special "Kids at Carlisle" stamps. These activities can include special cars and trucks to see, learning opportunities, contests geared towards kids, and more. Maximize your family's in-person experience and plan ahead so you don't miss a single thing!

We highly recommend all families check out Carlisle Truck Nationals each August, which offers the widest variety of fun, family activities including monster trucks, freestyle motocross & stunt shows, wildlife shows, and of course... thousands of cool trucks!

Since 1974, Carlisle Events has offered automotive fun and entertainment for all ages. Over the years our car shows have helped to foster family traditions full of fond memories that transcend generations. Families of all kinds continue to share their enthusiasm for the automotive hobby with their younger family members, developing the next generations of automotive enthusiasts. We hope to continue supporting these traditions for many generations to come!
