The Drag Day is an event held twice a year in Southern California. Geared more toward the motor head VW Junkie, the HOT VWs Drag day has much to offer for every kind of VW Enthusiast.

Although there is no official "car show" at this event, we do offer a preferred parking "Show & Shine" area for any VW just behind the grandstands.

September 12, 2021 - So Cal Vintage VW Treffen
Anaheim, California
Facebook Twitter

8th International Southern California Vintage VW Treffen

After visiting events in Germany like Bad Camberg and Hessisch Oldendorf, we wanted to bring an old German atmosphere together with strictly Vintage Volkswagens. The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, California is a true "old school" German Cultural Club, as well as the perfect host for an event like this. The So Cal Vintage Treffen is limited to 1961 and earlier "Small Taillight" Beetles and Buses, 1959 and earlier Karmann Ghias, early Military Vehicles and Coachbuilts, as well as Porsche 356 “A” and "pre-A" cars.. Our first event held in September 2007 turned out to be a big success, and the plan is to hold it every other year opposite the Solvang Vintage Meet put on by the Golden Gate Chapter of the VVWCA. So if you have an old VW collecting dust in the garage and you want to show it off, or if you're just looking for an excuse to have an authentic German Bratwurst and beer... the So Cal Vintage Treffen is just the place for you.

:::SCHEDULE:::
Saturday, September 11th, 2021
Speedwell Rallye will be back. Check the website (www.BUGIN.com) for updates as they become available.

:::PRICING:::
$10 Spectator Admission
$20 Standard Car Entry
$60 Deluxe Car Entry
$40 Vendor/Swap Spot

:::CAR SHOW INFO:::
The So-Cal Vintage Treffen is limited to the first 200 cars registered. This event in particular is specifically for 1961 and earlier "Small Taillight" Beetles and Buses, 1959 and earlier "low light" Karmann Ghias, WWII Military and early VW Coachbuilts. Because of our limited room at the Phoenix Club, we have to limit the vehicle count to 200. If there are spots available after pre-registration closes, we will take entries the day of the event until our maximum capacity is reached.

$60 Deluxe Entry: This will get in both driver and one passenger. (must be riding along in the car) For your Deluxe Entry you will be included in the "Participant Judged" portion of the event and receive the "Wolfsburg West Goodie Bag" including the limited edition, numbered car badge and dash plaque. If you have entered in a previous Treffen event and would like the same number as before, that can be arranged. Also, the vehicles picked to park in the Beer Garden and Festal-Tent will be chosen from our Deluxe Entries only. Deluxe entries will also have the option to load in early on Saturday afternoon and pre-stage their vehicles.

$20 Standard Entry: These entries will be sold at the gate, on the morning of the event, as space allows. Standard entry participants will be able to park inside on the grass along with all the other early vehicles. The Standard entry is for the person who wants to show up and park inside, but not necessarily interested in receiving any of the limited edition goodies. Be advised that there will be limited Standard entries based on the number of pre-registered Deluxe entries. Also, standard entries will not be included in the judged portion of the car show.

No show trailers will be allowed inside the Phoenix Club facility. We are very limited on parking, so if you plan on towing a vehicle, please make arrangements ahead of time to store your truck and trailer somewhere off-site.

Each "Deluxe Entry" participant will receive a judging card to fill out and return to the car show registration booth. You are to vote for one car in each class except the class you are registered in. A first place and runner-up award will be given out for each class along with a few specialty awards to be determined later

From daily drivers and outlaws to garage queens and concours winners, all 914s are welcome at Okteenerfest! Make plans now to join other 914 owners for some fantastic driving, plenty of socializing, a bit of showing off, and a truckload of give-aways. What's that? You say your 914 is on jack stands?

There will be no trophy's as this is primarily for everyone to fellowship and show off their rides. All makes and models as well as years of volkswagens are open to be shown. There will be a Bugs In The Woods putt putt golf course set up which will benefit the No More Shame, No More Fear sexual child abuse prevention project. For lunch we will be having home made chicken and dumplings cooked on an old wood stove. This year's Bugs In The Woods event will have several events planned and will have several door prizes as well as raffles to help in our cause. All proceeds for this event are going toward the No More Shame, No More Fear sexual child abuse prevention project. We will also have on hand the No More Shame, No More Fear bus available for people to view. This is a 1970 westfalia bus which we are restoring. Once this bus is restored, we will auction it off and all proceeds will go toward this cause. The No More Fear , No More Shame project is to raise money for helping to prevent sexual child abuse. One of the main goals of this project is to raise money to create a revolving account to help provide free therapy for victims. It is my strong belief that a victim and their families, no matter how old should focus on getting well and not on the financial burden of paying for therapy which is quite expensive. To keep things very straight forward and simple, there will be no prepay, paypal, sign up , etc. for event. Simply put , you can pay at the gate as you arrive. Vendors are also welcome and a space 12 x12 is $25.00 a day with additional spaces for $10.00. We have limited electricity available so if you have generators, please bring them.
The Bugs In The Woods jamboree will last through Sunday , November 14, 2021. The event will begin on Friday, November 12th, 2021 and will end on Sunday, November 14, 2021. On Sunday morning, we are planning a ramble down some old country back roads, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The event will end at 2 p.m. There will be a donation box available for people to contribute to the cause. There will also be shower facilities and bathroom facilities available. I look forward to seeing everyone here this year.

Nojoqui Falls Park, near Solvang


This is a grass roots effort and we need your help to make it a success.
Read On...


General Info:
Meet us in the Middle for a gathering of VW enthusiasts from Southern and Central California. The location is beautiful Nojoqui Falls Park in Santa Barbara County. It is near the Danish style city of Solvang. Take the short hike up the trail to the falls that are usually flowing nicely this time of year.


MITM Rules. If you plan on bringing a small bbq pit that hot coals get put in the designated trash cans only. If not we will not be able to allow personal bbq pits next year. Also when heading up to the falls this year please obey all the caution signs due to slide a few years ago it has created a safety hazard.

Thank you,
Eric Lykens

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].
