Winter AutoFest, held annually at the SUN n’ FUN Expo Campus in Lakeland, Florida each February, has been canceled, organizers announced.
Organized by promoter Carlisle Events, the three-day event includes a quintet of car show options, an automotive flea market and a two-day classic and collector car auction.
Because of ongoing COVID-related concerns, the planned 2021 event has been canceled, but will return in full in February 2022.
While Winter AutoFest has been canceled, the auction element of the event will be happening at the facility during its originally planned dates. Carlisle Auctions, the sister company of Carlisle Events, will move forward with its two-day classic and collector car auction, Lakeland Winter Collector Car Auction. This socially distant event takes place on the SUN n’ FUN Expo Campus grounds, within a trio of hangers Feb. 19-20. Interested parties can bid and buy in person, online and on the phone. More details on this event will be shared in the coming days.
