RetroFest

Details for 2021 coming soon! 

If you love classic cars, RetroFest is the event for you. Held annually over the third weekend in May, the event revs up on a Friday with the Kent Historic Auto Club's Classic Car Cruise starting from Chatham and winding its way throughout Chatham-Kent. Bring your lawn chair and grab a spot along the sidewalk in downtown Chatham to enjoy the Friday night cruise, where there's something for the entire family! 

On Saturday, when you stroll Chatham's downtown core, you will see classic cars of all vintages lining the streets and proudly displayed by their owners, who are always willing to answer your questions. Don't be afraid to take photos with your favourite cars! 

You also don't want to miss downtown Chatham's shopping and dining or heading over to Tecumseh Park, which is filled with vendors, rides and retro-fun activities for the whole family to take part in.
