The 2022 Pennsylvania Auto Show has been cancelled.

The Harrisburg Automotive Trade Association’s Board of Directors have made the difficult decision not to produce a 2022 PA Auto Show.  The 2022 Auto Show was scheduled to be held January 27-30, 2022 at the PA Farm Show Complex. A typical show hosts more than 30 manufacturers with the latest vehicles and technology, but automotive manufacturer production has slowed significantly due to the COVID pandemic and the resulting global microchip shortage. With continued low inventory levels and current conditions, we unfortunately cannot produce an event of the caliber that show-goers have come to expect and deserve.
