Eureka Springs VW Show 2023 and the Ozark Euro Rally are just weeks away. The popular event brings a host of VW and other classic, German cars to Eureka Springs for a weekend of fun: August 25th, 26th, and 27th, 2023.
The Eureka Springs VW Show has been an annual, Eureka Springs tradition since 1992. The three day event includes car judging, awards, and, the big event, a parade through Eureka Springs. Eureka Springs is known for its wild and colorful parades and the annual VW Parade through downtown is no exception. Creatively decorated VW’s, lots of honking, and even “throws” of beads, candy, and other trinkets. A VW Mardi Gras!
VW owners will also love the VW parts swap meet. Other highlights include a pulled pork BBQ, a cocktail party with live music, and a Tourcade for the VW owners.
The weekend is not just for Volkswagens, however, but other German cars, as well.
The Eureka Springs Volkswagen weekend proved so popular that it created an overflow show: the Ozark Euro Rally. The Ozark Euro Rally, held August 6th, 2023, is open to German cars of all types and held at The Great Passion Play.
