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 350 show cars, over 100 vendors, and thousands of spectators.
Check out photos and video from previous Bug-a-Palüzas!
With 40 show classes for both air-cooled 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 marble 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, and check out our special hotel rates. Camping is available on-site with water and electricity, whether you are in a small tent or large RV.
Spectator entry is just $4 per person, good for entry all weekend. Children under 12 are admitted free. All gate proceeds go directly to the Ronald McDonald House, donations also appreciated! Gates open at 8:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday.
Pets are allowed at Camp Jordan, as long as they are on a leash and owners are expected to clean up after them.
