HARRISBURG, Pa. — As the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex waves goodbye to its equine guests, it welcomes a different kind of horsepower. The Pennsylvania Auto Show makes a grand return to Harrisburg, transforming the complex into a hub of automotive innovation and excitement. Starting Thursday, the event promises a diverse showcase of over 400 vehicles, encompassing cars, trucks, motorcycles, campers, snowmobiles, and even the avant-garde realm of concept cars.
A Show for Every Enthusiast
Jack Oyler, President of the Harrisburg Auto Motive Trade Association, emphasized the show’s universal appeal. “It’s a platform to ignite excitement around new vehicles,” Oyler noted. “Visitors will encounter novel designs and technologies not yet seen, previewing the future of motoring.” The show’s star attraction, a 2024 Rolls-Royce Spectre valued at an astounding $541,025, epitomizes luxury and innovation. This event isn’t just about viewing; guests also have the unique opportunity to purchase pre-owned cars, ranging from economical models to high-performance vehicles.
Hours and Access
The show’s timings are tailored for convenience, opening on Thursday from 1-9 p.m., and continuing Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., before concluding on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The admission process is streamlined and inclusive, with tickets priced at $10 for adults, $6 for seniors, military personnel, veterans, and students, while children under 12 enter free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets are readily available online for purchase.
Parking and Practicalities
In terms of logistics, parking is set at $10, payable exclusively via credit card. The absence of satellite parking underlines the need for efficient planning by visitors. This detail, while minor, is integral for ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for all attendees.
