Classic Rock Road Crew Summer Update

Published On July 24, 2017 | By zenacurrie | Road Crew

What a summer it has been so far for the Classic Rock, FREE 98.1 Arby’s Road Crew!

June came and flew by before we knew it! Kicking the off month was the always amazing Fleetwood Country Cruize-In at the Plunkett Estate where classic car lovers gather to check out Canada’s largest outdoor classic car show! The next week, the Classic Rock Road Crew was headed to St. Thomas to check out the Project Hope build where a family who lost their husband and father brought on an outpouring of support from the community that rallied together to build a home from ground up in THREE days! Rounding off the month was of course the delicious and refreshing 2017 Beer & BBQ show at the Western Fair District followed by Grand Bend’s own local brews and food at Beachfest!


Then, before we knew it – it was July! Canada Day weekend was one London will never forget celebrating the big 150. From Sesquifest that took over downtown to the fireworks with the Byron Optimists & London Majors wrapping up Canada Day, it really was an amazing weekend! With the following weekend bringing the sweet, savoury smell of bacon and Harley’s to the air it was time for the annual Hogtown Baconfest in Lucan. From the deep fried bacon and bacon stuffed burgers to rocking out to Hells Bells and Gunz N’ FN’ Rosez with an ice cold beer under the stars at Hogland, this was one incredible day! Following Baconfest is the The Home County Music Festival weekend which is always a don’t miss event for Classic Rock, FREE 98.1 and 2017 didn’t fall short. With more stages, food and vendors than ever before, it was three days of non-stop action.


Classic Rock, FREE 98.1 has also been hitting the road and giving away tickets to Boston & Joan Jett, Metallica and Iron Maiden with the Classic Rock Road Trip and Detroit Tigers tickets all summer long! In between everything there have been golf tournaments, visits to Buffalo Wild Wings, Slo-Pitch City and the London Major’s among many other events has kept the Classic Rock Road Crew busy all summer!

So what’s still ahead? Make sure to watch for the Classic Rock Road Crew as we will be at Rib Fest, Iron Horse, and Bluesfest to name a few! Plus, we will be hitting the road with London Ice Cream giving away FREE cones! If you have an event coming up that you would like us at, make sure you submit the details under “Submit an Event” under the “Concerts and Events” listing at!

Thanks for making it a great summer so far and we can’t wait for what is left to come!
