In only its seventh year, the Copper Kettle Classics has become the can't-miss event of Ontario's celebration of the classic cars, bikes and trucks community. With its spectacular competition and the Copper Kettle Festival held in partnership with the show, Always free to attend and participate, Copper Kettle Classics has elevated the attention of the car collecting community to new heights. Billed as "the closest thing to a Concours d'Elegance 'round here", Copper Kettle Classics pays homage to some of the greatest car shows in North America such as the Pebble Beach Concour d'Elegance.
On Saturday, August 23rd, Copper Kettle Classics and Copper Kettle Festival together deliver their trademark day of excitement during this annual event held in historic downtown Creemore welcoming over 4,000 attendees and 400 car exhibitors. Many of the most coveted cars, trucks and bikes have parked on the historic street of Creemore but there's more to Copper Kettle Classics than just great collector cars, it's also an event you can bring your whole family to. At the Copper Kettle Festival you will find delicious food and drink, kids' activities and live music throughout the afternoon featuring award-winning musicians showcasing jazz, funk, country and more. New this year, two teams of culinary icons, gifted chefs, farmers and community members cook-off against each another using local ingredients and a selection of Creemore Springs' beer.
"The success of our event demonstrates that Copper Kettle Classics and Copper Kettle Festival continue to be not just an amazing day for the collector car community, but valuable time shared with the whole family," said Corey Finkelstein, organizer of Copper Kettle Classics. "Car collecting is a lifestyle, which was evident by the excitement to become an exhibitor at the show but what is priceless is watching the smile on a grandfather's face as he leans down to tell his grandson that he used to have a car just like that when he was young."
