Previously known as the York Reptile & Pet Expo (YRPE), the Mid-Atlantic Reptile Expo is a sales and educational event geared toward reptile & amphibian enthusiasts. In addition to reptiles and amphibians, we hope to see aquatics vendors join us at the upcoming June event for sale and educational presentations.


New year, new name, new location! The Mid-Atlantic Reptile Expo is very happy to announce that our venue location and dates have been finalized! The Carlisle Expo Center allows us the flexibility to grow the event in ways that we were unable to in York and also offers a more direct route for guests and vendors coming in from Maryland and Virginia as well as Philadelphia, Scranton and beyond.


Entrance tickets are $8 for all guests 13 years of age and older, guests 12 and under are free. Tickets are available for purchase only at the door.

October Vendors

Vendors are added to the website vendor list after they have paid for their space. A final vendor list, including vendors that have elected to pay day of show, will be posted on the Facebook event the morning of the expo once they check-in.
