"Rims & Ribs" RetroFest/RibFest 2023

Stay tuned for 2024 RetroFest plans in May, 2024.

If you love classic cars and great food, this is the event for you. Save the dates for May 25 to May 26 as the annual event will rev up on Friday with a "New Gen/Old Gen" Car Party in the Downtown Chatham Centre Parking lot with plenty of action at Tecumseh Park. Saturday will be the Kent Historic Auto Club Classic Car Show, Ms. RetroFest, and Junior Judges. Take a stroll through the downtown core to see classic cars of all vintages, proudly displayed by their owners. Don't be afraid to ask questions and take pictures of your favourites! 

Check out Tecumseh Park, filled with vendors, rides and retro-fun activities for the whole family, then settle in for a weekend of live entertainment. 

Planning is underway and you can follow along with details on their website.
