The first ever Creemore Valley Classics car show (originally called the Copper Kettle Classics) was held in 2007. From humble beginnings, the Creemore show set out to be one of the most interesting and enjoyable car shows in Southern Ontario. The first year, 78 local classic cars were on display alongside a beer festival attended by friendly folks; it was a perfect day in the sun. Since then vintage car, truck and motorcycle owners have enjoyed picturesque downtown Creemore. In 2015, the show organizers welcomed a record 700 classic vehicles.
The Creemore Valley Classics car show is the brainchild of Corey Finkelstein, Manager of Private Client Services at Hagerty Canada., and long-term caretaker of his restored 1964 VW Deluxe Beetle. Corey’s passion for old cars and the village of Creemore led him to seek out the organizers of the disbanded Creemore Valley Car Street and Hot Rod Club to resurrect the show.
Together, Corey and the original founders of the Creemore Valley Street and Custom club 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.
Our goal is to provide a fun event 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.
