It's an Aircooled Volkswagen and Retro American car show & swap meet with a chilled out afternoon and evening of entertainment with old style VDub show games, live music, food, bar and camping on Saturday.
Followed on Sunday by a show and shine, focused on Aircooled VWs and pre 80s American cars, bikes and autojumble swap meet. It's a bit different to what the Bristol Volksfest team normally do, more reminiscent of the old grass roots shows.

If you're interested in going, add your name to the list below.

Celebrating all Aircooled V-Dubs and American classic, retro and vintage cars and bikes.
Taking things right back to basics with a real old school grass roots show vibe.

Not sure about Wig, but I`m toying with the idea, we could run with the weather forecast if you likes bud. I`ve got a new recipe to try as well :shock: :shock: :shock:

"Less than a week to go for this!
A proper chilled out and laid back show. A fine selection of Aircooled rides and American muscle!
Great traders with loads of vintage gear for sale. Good food, good music and good people!
Show and shine. Auto jumble. The Rothfink Pin Up girls, and a chance to win a photoshoot with them and your vehicle.
It's gonna be a good weekend!"

So is there going to be an earlybay line up at this show ?
Forecast is ok, so I will be turning up :)
Went to this at the weekend. Deffo recommend it for next year. Very chilled show and enjoyed it 8)
