Fall Florida AutoFest and Winter Florida AutoFest, formerly called Zephyrhills Fall AutoFest and Zephyrhills Winter AutoFest, are seasonal events where automobile enthusiasts buy, sell, trade and celebrate collector and classic vehicles. Although the event originally focused only on cars, Carlisle Events began encouraging plane, RV and antique bicycle owners and enthusiasts to attend when the event location changed to Lakeland, Florida.
Both the fall and winter installments of Florida AutoFest feature a collector car show, swap meet, car corral and automotive auction. The swap meet is a flea market with an automotive theme, while the car corral features a variety of classic cars up for sale directly through their owners. Over 300 classic automobiles go to their highest bidders during the automotive auction. Other activities and attractions at the festival include women's bingo, an acrobatic show, camping grounds and an oasis featuring non-automotive shopping opportunities.
The festival originally took place at Festival Park in Zephyrhills, Florida, but it relocated to Lakeland's Sun 'n Fun complex in 2015. The new location offers convenient parking options and is easy to access from several major roadways. While attending the event, guests can check out the complex's free air museum and take advantage of its camping areas with their families.
