Rides on Richmond returns this weekend

LONDON – Rides on Richmond is coming back this summer! Head down to Richmond Row on Sunday, July 23 from 10am to 3pm for a free car show hosted by Grenade Garage and Dos Tacos. 

Rides on Richmond debuted last summer with a massive turnout of an estimated 125-150 cars in attendance. Car enthusiasts flooded the street, including people that traveled from out of town for the show. Many families were also seen in attendance.

All kinds of cars are welcome at the free car show. People are encouraged to drive their cars in and park along the road for attendees to check them out. 

“Asaad and I are thrilled to once again host Rides on Richmond,” expressed Terry Johnson, co-organizer of Rides on Richmond. “This is the second year for the show and last year’s support from the car community was amazing. We were shocked by the amount of spectators that came to view these stunning cars. Hopefully we will inspire the next generation of young enthusiasts. We are happy to help bring those people together in the heart of our city and showcase London’s offering.” 

Some downtown businesses have opted to participate in the event by hosting a Sidewalk Sale or opening their patio for event attendees to enjoy. The car show is expected to bring in a lot of customers for nearby businesses.

“Downtown London is integral to advancing a distinct, livable, vibrant and resilient business community in our downtown,” said Scott Collyer, LDBA Board Chair. We’re very excited to see Rides on Richmond back again this year, and look forward to meeting up with you on Richmond Row.”  

There will be a street closure on Richmond St from Central Ave to Piccadilly St. The LTC will be detouring all north and south routes off Richmond to Wharncliffe. Transit users can track their bus in real-time here:
