Classics on Kent brings the magic of Classic cars to downtown Lindsay.

    Thousands of people and approximately 800 classic cars are expected to converge on Lindsay, Ontario on Sunday for an experience that's all about Classic Cars and Hot Rods.

    The Lindsay & District Chamber of Commerce, together with our sponsors and many volunteers, have joined forces to bring the magic of the downtown car show that raised the bar for car shows in Ontario.

    Classics on Kent will see the Lindsay Downtown lined with Antiques, Classics, Rods & Customs. Touted as the widest main street in Ontario, Kent Street in Lindsay is the ultimate setting for a downtown car show.

    If you would like to VOLUNTEER at this great event, please contact Christine at the Lindsay & District Chamber of Commerce by email or call 705-324-2393.
