Paddock Wood, Kent, United Kingdom

Grill-n-Chill now in it's fourth year is a weekend camping event based loosely around classic vdubs whilst welcoming all of our VW family along with their distant cousins or anybody with a love of classic motors.

The weekend is a relaxed one with a chance to kick back, throw a few burgers on the 'Grill' then open a cold one and 'Chill' with like minded people. Tickets start at £5 for day visitors and weekend camping from as low as £10 per person. Under 16's are FREE, so long as they arrive with you...

Visit our website: http://www.grill-n-chill.co.uk for ticket sales and info or search for Grill-n-Chill on the dreaded Facebook...

Please note this is an event put on by VW people for VW people not a get rich quick scheme. We're just trying to give something back to those that share our hobby, passion or addiction!

Trade pitches available from £30.

No food or drink venders, sorry.

September 19, 2014 - September 21, 2014 - Jerome Jamboree

Facebook Twitter

Jerome Jamboree XXIV (That's #24 for all you non-Romans)
September 19-21, 2014 in beautiful Jerome, Arizona at 5066' elevation.

That's right...Don at the Gold King Mine Ghost Town in Jerome, AZ has agreed to let us play in his front yard again this year. Come join several hundred of your closest friends and a few hundred of their awesome Type-2's on the edge of Cleopatra Hill with the mountains of Sedona as our backdrop. In addition to live (and sometimes dead) music, slow drags, cornhole competition, chili cook off, kids build a bus from a box, raffle prizes, the worlds largest VW bus "Walter" & his oversized friends...you get get a chance to win this years raffle bus for only $.50.

The Arizona Bus Club Jerome Jamboree XXIV official event info & pricing:

September 19th-21st, 2014 held at the Gold King Mine.
Perkinsville Rd. Jerome, AZ 86331

Only Volkswagens (of any year or make) are allowed in the event area. (Exceptions will be made for vintage campers and vendors.)
$15 per vehicle per night (Friday & Saturday)
$35 vendor space for the weekend
$5 per head for walk in's Friday & Saturday
$10 per head walk in's for Sunday
All fees are CASH ONLY and collected at the gate of the event.

Contact Gary or David for any questions or vendor reservations.
[email protected]
(602) 492-5287

Raffle tickets are $0.50 each. Prizes include t-shirts, tons of swag and a restored 1966 Sundial VW camper bus among various other items. Donations for raffle prizes are welcome and encouraged...we want everyone to win something. Raffle drawings will be Friday and Saturday evenings with the grand prize raffle on Sunday morning ~ 10am. RAFFLE TICKETS SOLD ONLY AT THE EVENT. YOU MUST BE PRESENT AND WEARING AN APPROPRIATE WRIST BAND TO WIN!

There is a VW caravan leaving on Friday morning with the 1966 Sundial Raffle Bus leading the way. Our special guest Bill Bowman aka "Bullibill" (of Hot VWs "Transporter Talk") will be our pilot of the raffle bus during the caravan. Jerome Caravan is meeting 7am on Friday September 19th at the Home Depot parking lot in the northeast corner of I-17 and Thunderbird Rd in nothern Phoenix, AZ and departing by 7:30am. We will also stop at the Albertsons grocery store in Prescot Valley for 30 minutes for last chance fuel, food and ice.

We are expecting a record size crowd this year and our event space is limited so please be very conservative with the size of your camping space. There will be chalked lanes for required emergency vehicle access, please do not penetrate the marked lanes with your vehicles, camping or swap items. If the organizers feel your campsite is too large they will ask you to condense it or will squeeze late comers in with you. To discourage excessively sized trailers and/or campers taking up valuable VW space the organizers may charge extra for implements larger than a VW bus so please leave the RV's at home. This is intended to be a VW only event so when you wake up each morning all you see are VW emblems and the smell of gear oil dripping.

Swapping from your VW is highly encouraged so we are allowing you to sell your unwanted VW parts right from your vehicle at no additional charge. Please keep your swap items VW related and condensed to your campsite. Otherwise consider using the vendor area to peddle your goods.

Jerome Jamboree is a family friendly event and we welcome all of your kinfolk including the four legged versions. Please control your family and pick up after them so all guests can have a great time. Please put all recyclables, litter and excrement in the appropriate receptacles that will be liberally placed around the event. Unruly and/or vulgar guests will be escorted from the event and possibly barred from future ABC events.

Please keep loud music, cackling and conversations to a low volume after 10pm. The event is very condensed so please be considerate of your camping neighbors.

Pets are welcome but please remember this event is held during late summer in Arizona which can be very warm. The site is a barren gravel lot with no shade or water available. Please make sure to provide them with plenty of water and pick up their steaming divots immediately upon delivery.

Every year the ABC restores and raffles off a pre-67 split window bus and this year is no exception. We have begun working on this years bus and boy is it a beauty...a 1966 Sundial camper bus which is a really dry Arizona bus that left the factory as a Kombi and was converted by the Sundial Company when new and this baby even has the coveted side tent. Feeling energetic and want to help work on what could be your new bus? Well visit our website for details on the work parties.

If you come to JJ-XXIV expecting shade trees, barefoot grass and a babbling brook with KOA grade camping facilities...you are in for a treat because we have none of that. This fine facility is a large gravel parking lot which is mostly flat and devoid of any vegetation but there will be port-O-johns, trash cans and "Bus Burger" concessions for your convenience. Basically...if you need it, you better bring it.

Besides the nearby historic mining town of Jerome...there is a really sweet attraction within staggering distance called the Gold King Mine Ghost Town and we highly recommend you save a $5 bill out of your raffle ticket fund to tour the grounds for displays of relics from your parents, grandparents and great grandparents time from long ago...Don may even bless us with a drive by of one of his many fine vehicles from up on the hill.

Sound like fun? You bet it is!
We hope to see you there.

Townsend, Tennessee

OKTEENERFEST - Southeast's largest 914 event
Thursday thru Saturday, September 25-27, 2014


Ok, all you Can Am/Limited Edition 914 enthusiasts... this is the gathering you have been waiting for. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of these special cars, Okteenerfest will double as a reunion for all Limited Edition 914s. I know there are a LOT of these 914s in the Southeast (and beyond) so dust 'em off and tune 'em up to make the journey to Townsend, TN this September 25-27. Let's make this the largest gathering of Limited Edition 914s in the world!

Don't have a 914 LE? No worries. ALL 914s are welcome to join in driving the awesome mountain roads of east Tennessee and western North Carolina. Since the government shutdown affected nearly 3/4s of our original route in 2013, we will be using that same route for this year. Dubbed "der Nebelbergring", the route circles the Smokies and includes not only the world-famous 318 curves of the Dragon, but also Foothills Parkway, a portion of Moonshiner 28, a run through Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Little River Road.

Is your 914 on dreaded jack stands or in crates and boxes? That's fine. Drive whatever will get you here and enjoy the comaraderie of fellow teeners. For the drives, you will most likely be able to find an empty seat in a 914 somewhere.

In addition to the driving, Okteenerfest will feature plenty of good eating, an awards ceremony, tons of giveaways from the most awesome vendors (see below), a Peoples Choice Car Show, and some of the nicest people you will ever meet gathered in a single place.

If you have one of the Can-Am cars... you NEED to be here to help us not only celebrate 40 years of the Limited Edition cars but also be part of the largest gathering of LE 914s in the world!


The focus is on FUN!!! If you haven't been to this area, we have some of the best roads anywhere to drive. Our little cars were made to enjoy to drive, so it's a perfect fit. We'll be seeing some great sights along the way: Fontana Dam, Foothills Parkway, Cherokee (where there is a casino should anyone want to stop and play a little) and Great Smoky Mtns National Park. Plus, we have lots of social, hanging out 'in the parking lot' and just BS'ing time... What could be better?

Thursday Evening
- Registration Check In - Social time; snack/munchies provided; a chance to say hi; meet your fellow teeners; check out some cars, etc.
- you are on your own for dinner. A map and list of all restaurants in Townsend will be provided.

- The Drive! Dubbed "der Nebelbergring", we will travel Foothills Parkway, The Dragon, a portion of Moonshiner 28, travel through Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and return to Townsend via Little River Road. Thousands of twists & turns, elevation changes, and beautiful scenery will all be experienced along the way.
- BBQ Dinner with all the fixin's outside in the 'field' (hotel property) where we can park all the cars, wander around checking out peoples cars, reliving the drive of the day, making plans the tomorrow's drive, etc.

- Car show in the AM in the 'field' - Peoples Choice judging.
- Swap meet running concurrent to the Show.
- Special group photo op.
- Lunch is Free (as in, go where you'd like).
- Afternoon is Free. Directions and a list of interesting drives will be provided. Had enough driving in your 40 year old auto? Why not visit Gatlinburg (they have a local craft brew pub!) or Pigeon Forge (outlet shopping, shows, etc).
- Buffet Dinner in the Carriage House restaurant (on hotel property) for awards and the awesome door prizes!
- More hanging out and socializing after dinner.

- Time to pack up and head home...or...maybe make a morning run back over the Dragon or take any of the drives/visits we listed for Saturday and do them Sunday? Your choice. Drive safely as you head home.


We have some of the BEST 914 parts and accessories vendors on board offering astounding door prizes and goodie-bag items. With well over $5000 worth of giveaways available, every attendee has a chance of going home with some really nice “stuff” including gift certificates, new and rebuilt parts, shirts and hats, and tons of “miscellaneous”.


Okteenerfest will be hosted this year by the Talley Ho Inn located in Townsend, TN. Tell them you are with the “Porsche 914 Group” for the special rate.

The City of Firsts Volkswagen Club is pleased to announce its new partnership with the Kokomo Summer Concert Series for the 10th Annual Oktoberfest Volkswagen Cruise In. We are excited to announce this partnership with an organization that promotes unbelievable concerts at Foster Park’s beautiful Performing Arts Pavilion. Our new venue has a lot to offer and we know our guests will be impressed. For our 10th annual cruise in we are returning to a Friday Night - that’s right - Friday Night! That is not all; back by popular demand is the Swap Meet! We have the entire park for our event which will allow vendors to set up beginning at noon.

So, we have a few changes for 2014 but there is one thing that has not changed - this is still a FREE event! That is right - Free Swap Meet Spaces, Free Car Entry, Free Admittance and a Free Concert! We are confident this will be another successful event, just like all previous Oktoberfest Volkswagen Cruise In’s and would love to have you as our special guest.

Friday Night, September, 26th
The evening festivities will ramp up at 4:00 pm and at 7:30 pm Zoso will bring us The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience! www.zosoontour.com. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being “head and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes” and the Chicago Sun-Times declared Zoso is “the closest to the original of any tribute.” This will be an awesome experience and we are so excited to be able to bring this caliber of talent to you for FREE! This promises to be one incredible evening that you will not forget.

For a good parking spot you may want to come earlier because we are expecting over 200 cars! If you want to take a stroll downtown to visit one of our fine restaurants/pubs or visit our downtown merchants, the park offers a walking path just for that – what more could you ask for!

Saturday, September, 27th
Step back in time with us for an up close and personal tour of A Summer Place, a working mid 20th century town. If you yearn for the simpler life of the 1950’s you will not want to miss this cruise! We will be visiting A Summer Place where you can travel through time while ordering a malted with your burger and fries at the super cool diner, admire the tanker bicycles in the service bay of the Standard Oil station, and walk through the doors under the original marquee of the ISIS Theater. Rumor has it that “The Bus Movie” will be showing. This place has some awesome photo opportunities, so get your cameras ready! Please visit http://www.asummerplace.org. We will be leaving from Foster Park at 9:00 am for a fun filled cruise with lots of surprises.

BONUS OPPORTUNITIES! There are three additional Festivals the same weekend! You will have an opportunity to visit the festivals that are happening within 30 miles from our event. The James Dean Festival is held in Fairmount, IN and the Gas City Ducktail Run is in Gas City, IN. If you have had enough of the “car stuff” you can head south to Atlanta, IN and visit Atlanta’s Earth Festival.

Sunday, September 28h
We will meet at the Courtyard by Marriot for a 9:00 am breakfast in a private dining area. This will give us an opportunity to say “good bye” to our special guests and some of the finest people on the planet.

Cayucos, California
Facebook Twitter
Register now to participate -- it's free!

From the people who brought you the 2011 Type 3 50th anniversary California Central Coast weekend, it's… The 2014 Type 3 Rally!

It’s going to take place in and around Cayucos, CA the weekend after the 2014 Solvang VW Veteranentreffen. The rally will begin on the Friday following the Solvang show, and we will plan Type 3 events in the Cayucos area on Saturday and on Sunday morning. We're talking a whole Type 3 weekend!

The rally route is still being discussed, but expect a scenic, twisty drive along the ocean and through the foothills and mountains along the central coast.

For anyone who enjoyed the 50th anniversary Type 3 weekend, or wishes in hindsight that they had gone, this is your chance to participate in the sequel! Join us for a day or for the whole weekend. All Type 3s are welcome — early or late, stock or custom, show cars and hoopties, Notchbacks, Squarebacks, Fastbacks, Type 34s…even SP2s.

Once again Cayucos, CA, will be our base of operations. Here’s our planned itinerary:

Thursday, October 2
Self-organized caravans to Cayucos from north and south and arrive by the early evening. At about 7pm there will be an informal gathering at one of the local restaurants.

Friday, October 3
At 10:30am earlybirds and new arrivals will meet at the Borradori Garage parking lot for a drivers meeting and the beginning of Day 1 of the rally.
By noon we’ll arrive at the city park in downtown Paso Robles. This will be a meeting point for anyone who wants to join the rally midday. From there we’ll drive through the beautiful wine country between Paso Robles and Cambria.
Day 1 of the rally ends mid-afternoon back in Cayucos at the parking lot of the Borradori Garage, where we’ll have an informal Type 3  car show. A food truck with currywurst, bratwurst and other German street food will arrive later in the afternoon.
Later in the evening everyone will be on their own to visit some of the local establishments or just take it easy.

Saturday, October 4
At 10am Day 2 of the rally begins again at the Borradori Garage parking lot. From there we’ll head up the coast on Highway 1.
Just after noon we’ll meet at Sand Dollar Beach in lower Big Sur for a lunch break. This will be another meeting point in case anyone coming from the north wants to join us there on Saturday.
The rally will officially end again at the Borradori lot, but from there we’ll continue to nearby Hardie Park at the north end of Cayucos, where we’ll have a tri-tip BBQ and hang out into the evening.

Sunday, October 5
We’ll meet at the Borradori parking lot for an informal breakfast and farewell.

Details may change between now and October, so check back for updates.

The 2014 Type 3 Rally is sponsored by ISP West and the California Central Coast Chapter of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America].

The Fort Worth VolksFolks Club would like to invite you to their 14th annual VW show in Fort Worth. This year the show will be held at Burgers' Lake in west Fort Worth. Although this lake is spring fed, it is drained and cleaned at the end of each summer, so there will be no water activities available. However, this location has plenty of shade trees, sand volleyball, and picnic areas. Please note that no alcohol is allowed in the park area, and they have the right to inspect vehicles at the gate.

Since the club is at the beginning in our planning stages, we do not have all the details yet. So check back later this summer.

(Contact info bottom of page)

The 26th annual Pasco Bug Jam is excited about the 2014 event and some of the new aspects “we are rolling in on all 4 wheels”. Kicking off with the November 8th, pre party and packet pick up. We invite everyone to come out Saturday night before the show, to jam to some good ol’ music and enjoy the scenic Downtown Dade City at The Brass Tap. In addition those who preregister can get there packets early at the Pre-party jam, to avoid the lines the day of the event.

With all the good memories collected at the previous Bug Jam’s we decided to add more to the show. Bringing in some tasty Craft Beers and top of the line food trucks, to add that extra touch, of a good time. Another thing that will be added this year is those who preregister online will not only get a t-shirt a dash plaque but a commemorative coin to increase your collection of memorabilia.

Are you in to music? Bring your instrument of choice and have a different kind of Jam session with us. Unplugged jam session with fellow VW and music enthusiast at our Jam station.

Bug Jam expedites your entry to prolong your time in the event. We redesigned the entrance to a more efficient entry, by adding 3 more for a total of 5. The wait will be no more.

As the Blues Brothers would say “ON A MISSION FROM VOLKSWAGEN” We are having fun building memories, and keeping the good times rolling literally!
