July 15, 2017 - July 16, 2017 - 35th Annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Facebook Twitter

Every July, Pittsburgh's Schenley Park is the scene of one of the nation’s largest car shows. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix stages an International Car Show – a combined show of 20 separate displays featuring over 2,500 cars. It’s a weekend show open to anyone – no invitation is needed. All makes, all years, all countries, including the U.S. are welcome, whether or not you’re with a car club. You’ll be a part of the show with the best parking spot all weekend to watch the vintage races on the streets surrounding the Bob O'Connor golf course. Shine up your ride and be a part of the show!

The Volkswagen Car Show is one of the longest running car shows at Schenley Park. They were the first club to venture up onto German Hill at Schenley Park, which is now one of the most popular areas on Race Weekend overlooking the thrilling turn 13 of the track. Volkswagens of all years and models are welcome. The Three Rivers Volkswagen Club is the event host and has been a great supporter of our event and helped establish German Hill as a destination over a decade ago.

Now in its 35th year, The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is a World Class automotive festival. What started as a 1 day event in 1983 has grown to a 10 day festival of car shows, races, rallies, tours, and much more capped by two race weekends. The week finishes out with Schenley Park weekend. Over 2500 show cars from every corner of the globe take over the Bob O'Connor golf course while vintage race cars take to closed public streets for racing action the way it used to be. All event proceeds benefit charity. Since 1983, the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has raised over $4 million dollars to benefit the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School.

September 01, 2017 - September 04, 2017 - "Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #32" - BNNTA campout
Mark Twain Lake, Missouri
Facebook Twitter

"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #32"

Formerly, and also known as "Buses By The Arch". A family-oriented VW camping weekend!

Friday, Sep 1st through Monday Sept 4th, 2017 (The entire Labor Holiday Day weekend!)

It's time again to make plans to attend the premier Midwest VW Type 2 camping event! On average, we are delighted to host roughly about 100 Buses. (Check out past event coverage in the July, 2011 issue of "Hot VWs Magazine".)

Come join us for the upcoming "Buses Nowhere Near the Arch" camping weekend. This family camping event will feature a gathering of VW Transporters of all types and eras from all over the USA. While predominantly a Type 2 event, all models of VW are welcome to camp with us! We are looking forward to seeing you and your Transporter amidst all the "Split-windshields", "Bubble-windshields", Vanagons, and EuroVans as well as any other VW types this Fall. All models and years of VWs are invited, and only VWs are allowed inside the BNNTA event campground.

"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #32" will be held rain or shine over the
long Labor Day holiday weekend, Friday, Sept 1st thru Sep 4th, 2017. We will gather again at the "group use" campground at Indian Creek Recreation Area. This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campground is located right alongside 18,000 acre Mark Twain Lake, about 30 miles southwest of historic Hannibal, Missouri. This is a beautiful, federally-run campground with paved roads and parking pads and nice facilities. Most conveniences are available in nearby Monroe City or Hannibal.

On both Friday and Saturday evening we plan to have campfires and music along with VW and other "unusual" door prizes, and parts swapping in addition to the "site-to-site" socializing "Bus-banter" that this VW camping event is famous for. On Saturday morning we are planning another of our famous "Bus caravans" over to historic Hannibal, the boyhood home of Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. "Mark Twain." You'll have lots of time to explore the haunts of his hometown, or tour "Injun Joe's cave." You won't want to miss it!

If all goes well, on Saturday afternoon we plan another communal gathering for a pot luck dinner. So if you join us for that, please bring a large portion side dish to share with everyone! On Saturday evening, owners choice awards will be presented in several Type 2 classes in addition to vendor and participant-donated door prizes. If you have a neat VW related item to donate, bring it along. On Sunday you are free to enjoy the lake or visit other regional highlights. It should prove to be a relaxed, fun weekend full of great Volkswagen experiences and new friendships.

Our private camping facilities at Indian Creek include our own large, private "Buses Nowhere Near the Arch" group area with some electric hook-ups (first come, first served), fishing, water-sports (bring your water toys), playground, a huge pavilion, toilet and shower facilities, and a nearby boat ramp. The all inclusive camping/event fee is $30 per VW for the entire weekend.

Only VW’s that are registered and camping will be admitted into the BNNTA group campground area! Now, please read that last sentence again!

Sites in the BNNTA group campground area cannot be reserved in advance. The gates to our campground will be open for arrivals and site selection by about noon on Friday. If you arrive earlier, you could stay nearby in the regular campground at the Indian Creek Recreational Area. Although there should be plenty of room, the earlier you arrive the better.

We are looking forward to your arrival for a holiday weekend full of Volkswagen fun. Please pass the word around to your VW friends about this Volkswagen camping festival held over the long Labor Day holiday weekend!

So wipe down and pack up those Transporters for the cruise over to Mark Twain Lake for the "Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #32" campout on Friday, Sep 1st thru Monday Sept 4th, 2017 near Hannibal, Missouri. Please see the website below for lots of photos and information and a link to a mapping program to find your way to BNNTA.

"Buses Nowhere Near the Arch #32"
Indian Creek Recreation Area, Mark Twain Lake, MO


From Monroe City, MO:
Take US Route 24 southwest approx. 6.5 miles.
Turn left (south) onto State Route "HH", (WATCH FOR "BNNTA" SIGNS)
Proceed almost 1.75 miles, turn left onto first paved road. Monroe County Road #581. There is an "Indian Creek Marina" billboard as well as a BNNTA event sign at this turn, then proceed a little over 3.5 miles into the "Indian Creek Recreational Area" and watch for BNNTA signs on the right for the turn to the "Group Use Area"; then follow the BNNTA signs into the "Group Use Area".

*Volksfest is and has always been a fun VW family event and not a professional show. Judging is done by AVVA Club members and/or other VW enthusiasts, and are not in any way, shape or form professionals. There is no point system, or even specific formula in which we arrive at the winners of any catagories, other than what looks good to each of the judges.

Thank you for coming and we hope you enjoy our efforts.

September 17, 2017 - Southern California Vintage VW Treffen
Anaheim, California
Facebook Twitter

6th 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.

Saturday, September 16th, 2017
Speedwell Rallye will be back. Check the website for updates as they become available.

6th International So-Cal Vintage VW Treffen
Car Show/Vendor Gate opens @ 6:00 am
Spectator Gate opens @ 7:30 am
Show Judging ends, Ballots due @ 11:00 am
German Dancers and Entertainment @ 1:00 pm
Car Show Awards @ 3:00 pm

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

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. 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.

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
