Classics on Kent is taking place on Sunday, July 21, 2024! Classics on Kent is hosted by the Lindsay Downtown BIA, where a committee is put together to make all the major organizational decisions related to the show. This year, Wards Lawyers PC partnered with the BIA, with the intention of taking on a larger role in future years.

“Decisions are made on signage, street closures, and car placements on specific streets. Since the Lindsay Downtown BIA took charge of Classics in 2015, we have streamlined the process and resolved most issues year after year. Following Classics, we hold a meeting to review improvements, successes, challenges, and more while everything is still fresh in our minds to enhance future events,” says Mary Hackett, Lindsay Downtown BIA Marketing and Events Coordinator.

Volunteers and local businesses are a big part of this day—it takes a village for something of this magnitude to run smoothly. Sponsors of Classics on Kent work together to help make the event happen. Some of those businesses, to name a few, are Linborough, A&L Investments, Exit Realty Sunset, Desjardins, Memory Lane Motors, and Race Toyota.
