VOLKSFEST 2015

MOUNT HOPE ESTATE

MANHEIM, PA

Who knew? In May 1937, the government of Germany (then under the control of Adolf Hitler) formed a new state owned auto company.  Known as Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH,  It was renamed  a more manageable Volkswagenwerk, or “The People’s Car Company.”

And who knew that the Volkswagen would not only survive but become one of the most popular cars worldwide. Known as a rite of passage for the young, it also remains popular with those waxing nostalgic for that rite…

Volksfest brings together collectors, vendors and those with an appreciation for all things VW. Enjoy static displays, view the best of air and water cooled Volkswagens..awards will be presented for the best in those categories, as well as for best of show overall and worst of show overall.

Food will be available from the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire Kitchens along with fresh Swashbuckler Ales.

Date: Saturday, April 25, 2015

Time: 8:00 AM for Spectators
