April 20-21, 2013 — East Ridge, TN. Begun in 1999, Bug-a-Palüza has grown from a handful of enthusiasts spending a Sunday afternoon in the dealership parking lot to one of the largest annual VW events in the region. Each year, we have a record-breaking turnout and this year will be no different. Last year, we had over 300 show cars, over 70 vendors, and thousands of spectators.

With 50 show classes for both air and water-cooled VWs, you are certain to find one to enter. Our trophies are hand-made and one-of-a-kind, featuring a VW connecting rod on top of a solid wood base. You won't find anything like it at any other show, only at Bug-a-Palüza!
Our event is held at Camp Jordan in East Ridge, TN. It's easy to locate off I-75. View a map and get directions. Camping is available on-site with water and electricity, as well as an area with RV hookups. Special hotel rates are also available.
Spectator entry is just $4 per person. Proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga (Children under 12 admitted free). Pets are allowed at Camp Jordan, as long as they are on a leash and owners are expected to clean up behind them.
