Hershey is MUCH larger, has very close parking for $10 (I don't think it's more than that), and no admittance charge. Last year at Hershey the ATM's (only two of them) were out of cash on Wed, and they were not allowing the vendors to use ATM cash machines. I can cover Carlisle in one day, but you would have a difficult time covering Hershey in a single day. It can be a challenge finding close parking at Carlisle, and there is an admittance fee per person. I have found great deals at both, but I vote Hershey hands down as my show of choice. Brady

Hershey, by far. Carlisle has lots of shows, Hershey is only once a year.

Between 5000-9000 vendors in attendance....numbers change every year. Hershey is by far the show to do. If you do only one show a year, make it to this one. Paul www.severngaspumps.com At Hershey in spaces C4T 3-6

I did both last year,, if you want car parts, Carlisle is best for late 50's to early 80's

Hershey's great for the earlier cars,,,and gas stuff Hershey has far more,,,although a little less each year.

I guess Hershey it will be. I like chocolate too so I can kill two birds with one or more Reese's peanut butter cup.

Thanks for the input guys (look for the guy with chocolate on his face)
