From checking the time stamps on my photos from the past two years it's looking like I arrived Thursday night and staked my spot early Friday morning at 6 AM. Each year I had first pick of the section. I'm thinking I might do the same. I didn't even know you could stake out on Thursdays.

While you might not be able to park your car on the grounds on Friday, if you take a canopy or tent, you can go into the fairgrounds and essentially mark your spot and set up your canopy a day ahead. Then you don't have to struggle to search around for a spot when the modern car section gets overrun with participants as it has in recent years. I would also recommend checking out the Thursday night cruise at the Expo Center across the street from the fairgrounds.
Good idea but one cannot park on Thursday, not Friday. Perhaps you meant Thursday.

Getting ready to register for the event. There is a 10% discount until June 8th. Also I see a space for "coupon code". Anyone have a code or know where to get a code? What value is the coupon code?

Saw an article yesterday that the Pennsylvania health department is trying to shut it down, not sure of the status.
Carlisle Events statement
Carlisle Events provided the followings statement:
"This morning (June 17, 2020), Carlisle Events received notice of a lawsuit filed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health in the Commonwealth Court. The filing seeks to apply and enforce the Department’s 250-person COVID-19 limit to outdoor events, such as our Spring Carlisle event, which opened this morning. We have retained counsel and intend to vigorously defend this action.
"Similar to other large outdoor entertainment venues and amusement parks that have or are scheduled to open under the Green Phase in southcentral Pennsylvania, our approximately 100-acre event facility provides ample space for vendors and patrons to interact in a responsible manner, consistent with the CDC’s social distancing and other COVID-19 guidelines.
"Carlisle Events has worked tirelessly to put on this event in a socially responsible manner and will continue to do so. We believe the Department of Health’s Order is invalid. Even if the Order is valid, the Department has erred in its application to outside events such as ours, or has acted arbitrarily in seeking to enforce the order against us, while permitting other entertainment venues to open.
"We very much appreciate the business and support of our patrons and vendors during this time, and we hope that we will be able to continue to provide quality entertainment events that have become such an important part of our local and regional economy for the next forty-five years and more."

For what it's worth I broke mine also with Spinal Cord Injury. 18 years now. Spent a year in a chair and two in therapy. Have some side effects but up and around with some limitations. Hope you heal quickly and if you want PM me with any questions.
