Concord Pacific Expo Site, 88 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver, BC
The Great Canadian Volkswagen Show will welcome approximately 5000 car enthusiasts and their families to the Concord Pacific Expo Site. Air cooled and Water cooled, New and Old, VWs will be on display and ready for judging throughout the park. Families can enjoy taking part in a variety of activities and vendors will be showcasing what’s new and hot on the market.

 Western Canada's largest VW event attracts some of the finest Stock and Custom VWs from around the Pacific Northwest, including many past and present Hot VWs Magazine feature cars (18+ cars shot at past GCVW shows). Over 100 awards in 48 Classes. All types of VWs in any condition welcome. Pre-registration is now Open. Dealer Displays, Swap Area, 50/50 Draw, Trivia Contests and more...an entire day of VW fun for the whole family!

 The fee for Displaying your VW is $25 CAD. Registration on Sunday morning takes place from 8am to 11am, space cannot be reserved or guaranteed day-of-show.  Non Judged is $20.
Please note: For the safety of all spectators, once vehicles are parked in the show car area they must remain until after the awards ceremony which runs from approx 3:30-4:30pm.

Swap Meet Area spaces are available for every type of VW parts vendor. We offer small private (15' x 15') swap spaces for $40. Swap setup opens at 7am and closes when space is filled (on a first come, first-served basis) and is usually full by 10am.

This is going to be one great event. Fun for all ages. Great to have all the support of the sponsers.

   I was at the OCTO, Classic, and Prado. But I am looking forward to this even more. Lets get our cars on the road and have a big VW party.

   The Okanagan Boys are going to have a great turnout this year at the Show. Wait till you see what we are rocking up in the valley.

Gordo!

How could we make our upcoming 25th Birthday Bash on Aug 20th any better? Why not include "The Hip"!

The final concert of the Tragically Hip's summer tour will be broadcast and streamed live at Open Road on CBC.

"The Hip", helping put the "Great" in the Great Canadian weekend!
