9th Annual Ramara Classic Car Show

Thank you to our 2019 Platinum sponsors!

Thank you to our 2019 Gold sponsors!

Thank you to our 2019 Bronze sponsors!

Our Classic Car Show was a record breaker this year! It was once again held at the Brechin Dry Dock Marine in Lagoon City, Brechin, Ontario!



Our Classic Car Show has grown to attract approximately 2000 visitors and more than 200 automobile exhibitors. This year, visitors once again enjoyed DJ Wild Willy’s classic music, and were treated to a Willy Nelson impersonator.  Spectators browsed the Vendor Booths, and enjoyed the Brechin Legion’s BBQ as they toured the amazing vehicles; from antique legends and classic cars & trucks to muscle & modified cars. Visitor admission to the show is always free!

This year’s show ran from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, July 13th, 2019, despite some mid-day downpours.  Judging took place after the rainfall, so trophies, raffle draw and 50/50 were done on time and in the sunshine!
