Every year we have a good assortment of vendors for your air and water cooled dubs.

This line up includes rust free panels and parts from Volksfest parts, engine parts, t-shirts and knickknacks. A list of the vendors for this year will be up shortly in the sponsors section.




What started off as a small show in 1987 has blown up to be the largest non-judged show in Canada and North Eastern US. Members of the local Capital City Volkswagen Club got together and started the show off.

After 25 years and many venue changes the show has grown into a relaxed event where everyone can relax and enjoy many pristine dubs without having to stress out over shine clean and keeping “the Judges” happy.

This is truly the people event where good friends and great stories are just as important as having a nice ride.

With the hard work and dedication of Laura and Bob from Capital Dubs coming to an end, 2010 quickly became the last year of Volksfest. Luckily, in 2011, members of the local Ottawa-Vdub scene have stepped up to the plate, took over the show and keept it going with a volunteer group from Ottawa-Vdubbing.com, Club Volkswagen de l’Outaouais, Capital City Dubs and the Cornwall VW club.
