Volkswagen fans and German car enthusiasts alike will not want to miss Eureka Springs VW Show 2022 and concurrent Ozark Euro Rally show. August 26th, 27th, and 28th, 2022.
Volkswagens have been popular since the early 1960’s and the Eureka Springs VW Show (aka Eureka Springs Volkswagen Weekend) has been a local tradition since 1992. People come from all over the region to show off their own cars and to see all the amazing VW’s that are on hand.
In fact, so many folks and cars show up that they created an overflow show. Then the overflow show grew so large and popular that it earned its own name: the Eureka Springs Ozark Euro Rally. This event is open to German cars of all types and has its own rabid fan-base of attendees.
The Eureka Springs VW Show is a three day event that includes a VW parts swap meet, car judging, awards, and a parade through Eureka Springs. Other events include an evening BBQ of pulled pork, and a cocktail party with live entertainment.
The annual VW Parade is always a good time and the highlight of the festival. The parade starts off from the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks, circles around Eureka Springs, runs down through Main Street, and heads back to the hotel. It’s a Mardi Gras-like affair with a huge variety of creatively decorated VW’s, lots of honking, and “throws” of beads, candy, and other trinkets for the crowd. It
The VW weekend closes with a “Tourcade” driving tour through the beautiful Arkansas countryside. The tour includes the one-lane suspension bridge at Beaver, a pot-luck snack break at a lakeside park, and a stop at Beaver Lake Dam.
