No matter what your VW interest is, there's something for everyone at the BUG-IN. Our 1/4th mile Drag Racing is action packed non-stop entertainment, running all throughout the afternoon. We have both a "stock" and "custom" participant judged car show with over 20 classes to choose from, which can sometimes attract over 500 cars. Vendors from all the top companies in the industry have displays in our "Manufactures Midway" located right behind the grand stands in the middle of all the action. Lastly, the Swap Meet at the BUG-IN  stretches over nearly half the parking lot, and could take you all afternoon just to walk.

The BUG-IN has all your Volkswagen needs in one event!
