Copper Kettle Classics

Historic Mill Street in Creemore is closing to traffic Saturday, Aug. 22nd for the Copper Kettle Festival. The street will be busy with pedestrian traffic from people restoring past memories by viewing their favourite historic cars and trucks. This years Copper Kettle Classics car show will feature a tribute to car and motorcycle clubs near and far. All classics 1990 or older are welcome for this annual event.

Creemore’s Copper Kettle Classics has developed a reputation for the quality of nostalgic cars and picturesque setting in which it is held. A multitude of colours and chrome line one of Ontario’s most beautiful down-towns one day a year. People mingle with the owners and reflect about earlier days and memories associated with the car’s period. The vehicles also create a passage for people to partake in Creemore Brewery’s Copper Kettle Festival, where people enjoy the local froth and sounds of bands.

Besides viewing the Classics and enjoying live music and entertainment on the picturesque main street, spectators may join the festival fun including sidewalk sales, farmers market, artists’ gallery, live music, beer gardens, kids’ corner, free wagon rides and other events that were popular many years ago.

The Copper Kettle Classics was rekindled by historic automobile afficiados in 2007. In the 1980s and 1990s, the village was a destination point for the Creemore Car Show that for many years was a top regional car show.

Owners of classic automobiles 1990 and under may register or get more information from Corey by phone at 705-466-6593 or through Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. There is no charge to show your vehicle.
