April 02, 2022 - Herbie's 53rd Anniversary Celebration Extravaganza
Daytona Beach, Florida
Facebook Twitter

One Daytona/Daytona International Speedway
April 2-3, 2022
All VW’s are welcomed and encouraged to attend

We are at it once again. For those who did not have a chance to participate in Herbie The Love Bug’s 50 Year Anniversary which included the Lakeland VW Classic pictured above, we are doing it again in April of 2022, celebrating 53 Years since the release of the very first movie.

This time around, there are going to be even more Herbies than ever from around the US and Canada plus numerous fans from around the world. But we wanted to make it special for everyone as well so we decided to open up the last two days of the event to ALL VW’s.

Detailed planning is just now starting due to the COVID-19 Virus, but we have locked in April 3rd with the speedway which will give us access to the infield for a real celebration including a judged show and the ability to run laps and have pictures taken in front of the world famous Start/Finish line.

This is simply the first notice of it’s kind so that everyone can put it on their calendars and start saving a few dollars so that you can participate as well. This will be a non-profit event and we have already coordinated with other shows in the area such as No-Dough which is also normally held in April to minimize conflicts.

The details of the event will be handled by the Executive Board, but we will need help with the execution of this event. If your club would like to participate, please contact Gail Love at [email protected].

You will not want to miss this event!.
