April 21, 2024 - Kelley Park Spring Meet
San Jose, California
Facebook Twitter

The Golden Gate Chapter of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America will be hosting their 39th Annual Spring Meet at History San Jose at Kelley Park in San Jose on Sunday, April 21 from 8 am to 3 pm. All air-cooled VW's are welcome.

All cars entering the park MUST register for the car show and MUST park in their respective class. There will be NO pre-registration for either the car show or swap. You will queue up in the bottom parking lot and pay at the gate and register your car at the club booth after you park your car inside the park. Because of park concerns with people leaving early in their cars before the show ends, we ask if you think you have to leave early that you please park your car outside and walk-in. If you would like to be a sponsor or a vendor please contact Jan Peters at email synkro.digitalspacemail8.net or phone 650-207-1950 or Rick Spohn at [email protected] or phone 408-683-0154.

Please note there is NO alcohol, NO pets, and NO BBQ's allowed inside the park. These are park rules and must be obeyed. The park has asked us to make sure everyone packs up and leaves immediately after the show is over. This has become a problem in the past and has jeopardized our club to continue to have the show at the park.

The Holiday Inn Express located at 17035 Condit Road in Morgan Hill will be the host hotel. All you have to do is click on the link below and it will direct you to the reservation page. Enter the dates you want and it will give you a discounted rate.

April 21, 2024 - Volkswagens over the skyway
St Pete, Florida
Facebook Twitter

This event got started in the late 90s and ran for over 25 years! HUNDREDS of vws line up and cruise over the beautiful Skyway Bridge and on to a final spot where we all hang out for the day.The original founder couldn't keep going and it stopped a few years back. A few of us have managed to get together and, with his permission, were able to bring it back! We are starting at Terra Ceia, at a small local breakfast place called the citrus place, with a mile long service road across from it so we can line it up before the cruise. It will end at the Tropicana field parking lot and we are expected at a local bar/restaurant for the day. So far we are at 250+ cars registered and we're expecting way over 300.

So much work has been done by the team so far and no corners have been cut!

Large starting point to fit 100s of cars? ✔️
News Channel covering the event? ✔️
2 badass Harleys leading the pack as pace vehicles ✔️
Support vehicle with tools and emergency extra parts? ✔️
Trailer ready to assist with transport if breakdowns ✔️
250 plus cars ALREADY registered? ✔️
Large ending point with AMPLE space for 100s of cars? ✔️
Restaurant by ending point ready & excited to host us? ✔️

But what else could we do to make sure we have the best time AND make some cool memories you ask? Well, how about hiring a production company to handle event footage?

Well...BOOM!

Aeronautical Productions has been secured to handle drone footage of the whole event!! 🤯

So, what can YOU do to help? Tell everyone to register and come out, and let's make this a HUGE comeback!!! 😎

To register head over to this link, this helps us keep a head count of how many cars are coming

June 21, 2024 - June 23, 2024 - Wetwesties Camano Island Campout!
Camano Island, Washington
Facebook Twitter

Come and camp with us at one of Washington State's most beautiful campgrounds! We’ve had about 30 vans the past couple of years and hope for more in 2024!
Camano Island State Park (CISP) is a 134-acre camping park with 6,700 feet of rocky shoreline and beach. The park provides sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and offers opportunities for shellfish harvesting.
Bring your binoculars and try to spot the resident grey whale named "Patch". Also eagles in the trees, nice trails and one of the closest campouts to Seattle & the I-5 corridor.
Camano Island is about 40 miles north of Seattle and then 20 miles west of I-5.
CISP requires reservations in advance on this website:
https://parks.state.wa.us/223/Reservations
Reservations open 9 months in advance of the desired date, and CISP fills up fast, so reserve ASAP. Set your alarm for 7AM to get a great spot. If you haven’t previously reserved a Washington state park site, you may want to get an account set up in advance, as making reservations can be a bit tricky.
Saturday night potluck. If you have tables you can bring, that’ll help us at the potluck. And we love having musicians.

July 25, 2024 - July 28, 2024 - Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Historics @ PittRace
Wampum, Pennsylvania
Facebook Twitter

Experience the heart-pounding thunder of the PVGP Historics at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. If you are looking for speed, muscle and thunder, this is the place to be. Since 2004, racers from all over the country have come to the 2.8-mile purpose-built track 40 miles northwest of Pittsburgh for fierce and competition between the legends of the 60s and early 70s, including Mustangs, Corvettes, Jaguars, BMWs, VWs, Porsches and Alfa Romeos, just to name a few.

The Historic Race Weekend provides plenty of excitement for the entire family. Visit the cars and drivers in the expansive paddock and watch the races from several vantage points. Food/drink vendors and sponsors are located throughout the facility. Including Helltown Brewing – the “Official Beer of the PVGP” If you feel the personal need for speed, that can be done too. For a donation to the charity, you can rent a kart and reach speeds up to 45 mph on the .82 mile karting track.

2024 will feature the first Pittsburgh outing for Concours d'Lemons, The Concours d’ Lemons, a tongue-in-cheek show celebrating the Un-Best of the automotive world, clatters into the pits at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at Pittsburgh International Race Complex on July 27, 2024. Participants will share their affection for their less-than-loved autos with spectators and capricious, bribery-prone judges who award thrift store sources prizes in hilarious categories such as “Rust Belt American Junk,” “Most Dangerous,” and “Best Back Seat.” The whole debacle culminates in the presentation of the coveted “Worst of Show” trophy that sees the owner and hooptie showered in silly string. Does your VW have what it takes?

Also for 2024, the GT40 60th Reunion will be held. You saw them take on old man Enzo in Ford vs. Ferrari, now see and hear the might Ford GT40 as they roar around the track.

Founded in 1983, the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Motorsport Festival features two weekends of racing action. The first weekend is the PVGP Historics at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. The second weekend is racing through a 2.33-mile road course set on the streets of Schenley Park. Between our race weekends, we stage car shows, parties, road rallies, and a black tie formal. The PVGP is driven by 1,200 volunteers dedicated to staging the country’s largest and longest-running vintage race event. It is also a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with a mission to provide residential care, treatment and support for people with autism and intellectual/developmental disabilities – donating $6.7 million to date to charity.

July 26, 2024 - July 28, 2024 - Wetwesties Rattlesnake Trailhead Campout!
Mazama, Washington
Facebook Twitter

Northwest Forest Pass required ($30 available from the US Forest service and possibly available at the Goat’s Beard store in Mazama if you forget). No reservations required. This is a primitive camping area with a pit toilet but no water, no power and no picknick tables. Located about 22 miles West of Winthrop and 10 miles West of Mazama, WA. There are dispersed campsites with fire rings. There is normally a fire ban this time of year. I know of no limits on vehicles per site. The last couple miles of road is gravel and there is one short rough spot about a quarter mile from the camping area that has never been a problem for my van, but does require me to slow down to walking speed. Bring water. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/okawen/recarea/?recid=59391

The Bob O'Connor Golf Course plays host to over 3,000 show cars from every corner of the globe, while the roads around the park are turned into the 2.33 mile sanctioned race track with vintage sports cars taking to the track. Car shows are broken down into countries, and then by individual marques, with Volkswagen sharing a prime spot on German Hill at the turn 13 hair pin. The Volkswagen display is hosted by The Fresh Air VW Club and Three Rivers VW Club with over 100 VWs on display. Separate shows for Audi, Porsche, BMW, & Mercedes Benz.

For 2024, the featured marque will be Mini. With a spotlight on micro cars and featuring a selection from the Lane Motor Museum. Honorary Grand Marshall is Bill Warner, founder of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. Since 1983, the PVGP has had one mission.

Westbrook, Connecticut

Sunday December 1st, 2024 is the Connecticut Volkswagen Association's "Last Hurrah" at 401 Seaside Ave. Westbrook CT 06498.

Weather permitting we will be gathering once again at the Westbrook Town Beach from Noon to 3pm for the last Volkswagen event of the year. Are you crazy enough to go to a VW event in December???

Afterwards we are invited to participate in Westbrook's Annual "Tree Lighting" Parade. The Parade starts at 4pm from South Main St and continues to the town green and circles around it. Then we all join in on the green for refreshments, song, and Christmas Cheer. VW decorating is highly encouraged!!!

For more information please contact Bill Arute (860) 395-9964 or [email protected] or Chris Fox [email protected]
