18th Classic Car Show

For 18 years the Car Show has been a staple of the festival.  We shut down Main Street in Mount Forest to make way for over 500 classic and show cars from all over Ontario and beyond. Leave yourself lots of time to take in all of the sights on the Main Street. Check out all the special deals at local merchants and vendors. There’s entertainment for the whole family, including children’s entertainment, live bands and singers, as well as classic tunes from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Food Truck Alley down King Street and the 3rd Annual Mascot Race! The street opens up at 8 a.m., so get there early!

  2. Great show today. Thanks to all the organizers.
    The car show awards were presented today, but the time on the brochure, was different than the website. As such, many of the owners did not see the presentations.

    Can a list of the winners be posted please?

    1. Hello William,

      Thanks, we are so glad you enjoyed the Car Show! We apologize for the mixup on the times, we will strive to bring you more clear and concise information next year. Your suggestion has been taken and we will post the winners as soon as possible. We hope you enjoyed your time in Mount Forest and that we will see you again this time next year at the 2019 Mount Forest Fireworks Festival!

      Take care,


  3. Hello Lucas,
