This year we started a cooperationship with the club of music-culture in Liesborn. That’s the reason why we are able to present you tasty morsel of music.
Of course there are also tasty food treats to appease your hunger.

Not only for those, who had a long journey, reither for all of you, it would be great fun to join out campsite on the big lawn next to the bath. For the evening, when we will sit next to the bonfire, we have arranged a small surprise.
Toiletts and washrooms are avaiable. Moreover there is the possibility to get breakfast in the morning, or to go swimming in the pool.
Also this year you won‘t come away empty handed. So be curious and look forward the BBB 2018!

77709 Wolfach, Germany
Facebook Twitter

Dear Vintage Volkswagen friends,

The first international Vintage Volkswagen Event took place already several years ago, but stayed - despite of the bad weather - in good memories.

Receiving a lot of positive feedback led easily to the decision, to invite you again to our beautiful home town.

Together with the city of Wolfach and the local associations, we will organize some beautiful hours with nice entertainment and hospitably service and catering.

Especially for this event, the inner city of Wolfach will be closed for all the traffic, to provide enough parking facilities for your vehicles.

So our little town will become one big automobile exhibition, that offers all visitors a sense of travelling back in history.

We will offer the following:

• Presentation of the "Schwimmwagen"

under optimum conditions, the owners of the "Schwimmwagen" do have the possibility to water their vehicles

• Big original parts market

for sure you will find something there or you have the opportunity to have good conversations at the booths

• separated camping area

for all guests, that arrive with a tent or directly with their "rolling" vehicle

• Program for young and old

From a folkloric evening to the SWR Dance Night 1960 - 2018- we offer something for everyone.

All the program details you can find on the homepage. We will update them in the next months.

In Wolfach as well as in the local area, you can find numerous beautiful popular destinations, that invite you to visit our homeland again.

As we already had that many participants in 2010, we strongly recommend to register for your participation as soon as possible.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Best regards from the Black Forest,
Andreas Grabsch with the complete organization team

Blessing of the Buses -- May 5, 2018

In keeping with the spirit of “The Blessing of the Bikes” typically reserved for our Hell’s Yuppies friends, please join us on May 5, 2018 for The Blessing of the Buses!

The Blessing of the Buses is a spin on the ever popular Blessing of the Bikes. This second annual Blessing of the Buses is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 1018. It is a rain or shine event and is open to anyone owning any of the four generations of VW buses.

Father Angelo Maggos, a former bus owner, will perform the blessing at 11:00AM at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church located at 2245 East Baldwin Road; Grand Blanc, MI 48439 with lunch at the Church to follow the blessing -- if faced with inclement weather, lunch will be inside the Church Hall.

For those of interested, a group of contiguous campsites will be reserved at Groveland Oaks County Park ((248) 634-9811) located at 14555 Dixie Highway; Holly, MI 48442. The park is an approximate fifteen minute drive and nine miles from the Church. Campsites are classified as modern having both electric and water service; a fire ring is also resident on each site. Additionally, hot showers and full toilet facilities will be open for our group. We will also have access to a pavilion where live music will be provided beginning early evening. BTW, you can camp the evening before the blessing. Make your reservations directly with the campground but please contact me to confirm and review details.

Our vision is a well-intended get together among like-minded folks and to grow the event into a regional kick-off of the VW Bus camping season in Michigan. We encourage you to mark your calendars and please keep in touch with event hosts Jim and/or Liz Christopher: [email protected] or (810) 217-1280 - Jim's Mobile.

Stay well and look forward to seeing you May of 2018! And, don't hesitate to spread the word….

"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #33"

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

Friday, Aug 31st, 2018 through Monday Sept 3rd, 2018 (the entire Labor Day Holiday 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 33rd "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 models 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 #33" will be held rain or shine over the long Labor Day holiday weekend, Friday, August 31st thru Sep 3rd, 2018. 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 and "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 are planning another communal gathering for a pot luck dinner. So if you would like to join us for that, please do your part and 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 any neat VW related item(s) to donate as door prizes, please bring them 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 campsite 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 launch 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 can not 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 choose to 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 #33" campout on Friday, August 31st thru Monday September 3rd, 2018 near Hannibal, Missouri. Please see the website below for lots of photos and information and a link to a Google Maps program to find your way to BNNTA campground.

We will be gathering In Madrid, New Mexico on the scenic Turquoise Trail. The village of Madrid is nestled in a narrow canyon in the Ortiz Mountains. Once a historic coal mining town and ghost town, Madrid is now a creative community with over 40 shops and galleries, several restaurants, a spa and museum. A couple miles north is the quaint village Cerrillos that includes a state park with hiking paths and horseback riding. A little further north about 30 minutes is historic Santa Fe New Mexico.


This event will take place from June 1-3 2018 in the historic Oscar Huber Miners Ball Field.
The Miners were started by the Madrid Employees Club and won many pennants. The Oscar Huber Ballpark was the first lighted ballpark west of the Mississippi in the 1920s.

Please remember, This show is all about having fun, hanging out with friends, and raising money for good causes. There are, however, a few rules....

June in New Mexico can be interesting weather wise. Hot days and cool nights are not uncommon. Be prepared for weather changes. Bring sunscreen but don’t forget your jacket. Days can get to the upper 80's and the nights can dip into the low 60's

If campfires are your thing, the town is only allowing us to use propane fire pits. No OPEN FIRES!! If you are caught with a campfire, you will be asked to leave with no refund.

Due to the limited space at the ball park as well as in town, we will not be able to have RV's or trailers at this event. Our camping will be on the outfield of the town baseball field. if you have to trailer your bus or vintage vw, be prepared to find your own drop off location. Albuquerque or Santa Fe are both about 30 minutes from the camping location.

Quiet time from 10pm – 6am.

No glass containers.

No animals off leash. If you bring animals, please control them, and clean up after them.

Please be mindful of other people, and don’t impede their good time.

Although everyone is welcome to attend, we reserve the right to remove anyone from the campout at any time (with good cause) without a refund. Please understand this is to help keep the event fun and keep it going for next year.

Watkins Glen, New York

September 7-8-9 2018

Join the Empire VW Camping Club for a camping weekend and a few laps around “Thunder Road” @ Watkins Glen International Racetrack in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.

Back by popular demand, camping for this event is once again available to our group at the Watkins Glen State Park. Camping is also available at the Watkins Glen International Race track for the VW group.

This event is scheduled during the US Vintage Grand Prix race at Watkins Glen Race track. September 7-8-9. That weekend is very crowded in town due to race enthusiasts and the races at the track. Friday afternoon will be difficult to get through town due to road races on the old track on the city streets and county roads, which go through town and up through the State Park route. So from noon to 6 or so will be difficult to traverse the town and get to the campground.

We have two options: Camping on the race track or camping at the state park.

Camping at Watkins Glen State Park
No reservations needed and pay when you show up.
We have access to the Onondaga Village loop. Sites 155 to 203. Two vehicles per site are allowed, so buddy up and make friends. Brand new toilets will remain accessible for our group. I will also reserve the Iroquois Lodge, just in case we want to do a group together meal of some sort. SORRY NO ELECTRIC SITES

Camping fees will be managed by the Watkins Glen State Park – not me. We will be able to have 2 vehicles per campsites. Should run close to $25/night

No frills or stress this time. Unless someone volunteers to do it. I am only coordinating the camping arrangements at the State Park and also at the race track.

Camping at Watkins Glen Race Track
The Glen race track has set up a special package pricing for our group. There is a brochure with the details posted on the LiMBO site and you must call and coordinate the camping with Rob Roessel (607) 535-3351 [email protected] ... be persistent he is busy running around the track.

This package provides the happy campers with a camping spot for the entire weekend in Camping Area C. Two vehicles per site, and access to the entire track, pits, car shows, vendors and parade laps Saturday night after the Vintage racers.

For anyone camping at the State Park, for the cost of $40 per person you will be able to go all day Saturday to the race track and participate in the parade laps on Saturday night.

El BugO in El PasO! V.W. Charity Car show and swap meet

Held the first Sunday after Easter.

El BugO in El PasO is an all VW car show. The show started out with the goal of giving the VW community in southwest Texas a place to come hang out and enjoy their cars. This show is open to all VW's air or water, show or not. It is about the cars, the owners, and the culture. It is not all about the trophies. 100% of the profits go to a local charity of our choosing. . We hope to be a non profit status show this year as well so that we can donate more and grow more.
This year we will be having a limbo contest and foot powered drags (I don't know what else to call it) with teams of 2,3, or 4 pushing cars in a short slow drag race.
We are also working on other events for entrants and especially the kids.

Find us on facebook under El BugO in El PasO or contact me at [email protected]
Come on out bring your grills, coolers, canopies, and have a good time with some great VW peeps
