One of our top show destinations every year is the Carlisle Ford Nationals. Hosting the June event for over 3,000 show cars, dozens of Ford and Mustang clubs, and countless vendors in the swap meet and new product areas, the show is always a must-do on our schedule. All-new for 2017, the Carlisle Ford Nationals will be presented by Meguiar’s.

We see Meguiar’s at the Carlisle Ford Nationals every year, selling and demonstrating their great line of car care products and have been long time supporters of all of the Carlisle Events family of shows for over 20 years! Their prime spot on the Manufacturers Midway, the Meguiar’s display rig has what’s considered by most to be a permanent spot on the grounds; almost as permanent as the grandstand, stage and show field that surround it.

“Meguiar’s is proud to partner with Carlisle Events for the Ford Nationals in 2017,” said Manager, Event Marketing and Motorsports, Tony D’Amato. “We trust Carlisle to produce an event that our brand is proud to be associated with and we also believe that this partnership can strengthen an already thriving event,” continued D’Amato. “Meguiar’s is looking forward to this wonderful and exciting event.” The 2017 Carlisle Ford Nationals plan to shatter last year’s mark of registered cars with continued and unmatched representation from Ford at the show, the annual downtown parade and street party, a special 50th Anniversary showcase of the GT500, as well as the Cougar, and a 100-year display of the elegant Lincoln. There is a burnout contest, free test drives from Ford, a beauty contest, autocross, a massive swap meet, car corral, parts installs, and so much more; all starting June 2nd.
