Chatham-Kent Classic Car Events Return for 2022



They are back and this summer promises to be an exciting year for Classic Car enthusiasts . Even those of us who do not have classic cars or are not directly involved are in for some great entertainment in our area this summer. I believe we have all missed the great Chatham-Kent events in the last two years, the comraderie and the fun associated with these great gatherings. Chatham is the Classic Car Capital of Canada and has its fair share of events celebrating this throughout the summer.
The first event to kick-off this season is Chaham Retrofest which will take place May 27-28. It begins with a Classic Car parade at 6:30 P.M.on Friday evening from the Bradley Convention Centre on Richmond St, continue out Richmond St. to the Merlin Town line, over the Prarie Siding bridge and in the River Road in Dover to Keil Drive. It will proceed over Keil St. Bridge to Merritt Ave and conclude on King St. In Historic Downtown Chatham. There are event from 3 P.M. until 6 P.M. in Tecumseh Park and evening entertainment after the parade. Saturday will be the line-up of car along King St. and happening with vendors, rides and entertainment again in Tecumseh Park. Hope you will there.
