National Events

Carlisle Ford Nationals


July 31 - August 2, 2020

Carlisle, PA

The largest gathering of Merkur vehicles. Convoy to the show with your regional Merkur friends and join us for a weekend of driving, swapping (stories and/or parts), and inspiration for your next project.

Due to Covid-19, the Carlisle Ford Nationals has been postponed to the July 31 - August 2nd weekend. If you are already registered for the show and have your hotel reservation, everything will be transferred to the new dates. You should get an email from the Radisson re-confirming your updated reservation.

Now that you've got an extra two months to prepare, there's no excuse not to have your car ready! Fuel prices will be the lowest they've been in 20 years! The 35th anniversary celebration of the Merkur launch is delayed, not cancelled!

Stay happy, stay healthy, and we look forward to seeing everyone at the end of July!
