The first Copper Kettle Classics car show was held in 2007. From humble beginnings, the first show attracted 78 local classic cars and combined great weather, a beer festival and friendly folks for the perfect day. Since then, vintage car, truck and motorcycle owners have enjoyed picturesque downtown Creemore during the Copper Kettle Festival. In 2015, the show organizers welcomed a record 700 classic vehicles.
New for 2017, Copper Kettle Classics has been renamed Creemore Valley Classics. The name was chosen to pay pay homage to the disbanded “Creemore Valley Street and Custom Club” – the original Creemore car show organizers.
The Copper Kettle Classics car show in Creemore was the brainchild of Corey Finkelstein, Creative Director at Inzane Visual Communications Inc. and owner of a restored 1964 VW Deluxe Beetle. Corey’s passion for old cars and the village of Creemore let him to seek out the organizers of the disbanded Creemore Valley Car Street and Custom Club to resurrect the show.
Together, the original founders of the club and Corey planned a new kind of show in Creemore located on Mill Street. Corey donates his time to provide all the graphics, web design and maintenance as well as organizing volunteers and tracking down sponsors. A team of dedicated volunteers help to ensure the event runs smoothly.
We try to provide a fun show with an interesting feature each year. The beautiful buildings and tree lined main street in Creemore provides the perfect backdrop for a classic car show.
