Celebrating 50 years of the VW Thing/Type 181 with a special display of these unique vehicles.
ALL Volkswagens, regardless of year, model or condition are invited to participate at Bug Bash.
Swap meet spaces are always FREE with all-inclusive admission ticket, which is just $10 per adult (children under 12 admitted free). The swap meet area is now located at the southeast portion of the event.
Improvements have been made this year to provide an even better Bug Bash experience. We've moved the event to the south end of the the fairgrounds, while still using the easy access main entrance. This location will provide more shade for you and your VW on a warm summer day in Antioch. Also new for Bug Bash 2019 is People's Choice judging for the show and shine.
Bike Bash, the vintage and custom bicycle show inside of Bug Bash, is now in the southwest area of the fairgrounds.
Bug Bash weekend starts on Saturday June 22 with an open house at LaVere's VW Restoration from 10am-3pm. Stop by for some of Gary's legendary chili and check out the latest projects at their huge facility at 1121 Landini Lane in Concord.
