The 2018 Drew's Off Road BugSwap Swap Meet will be held on April 28-29.
Our swap meet will be held in a new location that will make the event better than ever.
This year the swap meet will be held at Butler County Fairgrounds, which is about 3 miles from our shop.
BugSwap 2018 will feature a large indoor swap area and an outdoor swap area.
We are extending the event from only Sunday to Saturday and Sunday.
The event starts on Saturday with a brewery cruise. We plan to cruise to two local beer breweries near the fairgrounds, Rivertown and Municipal Brewing.
Then we will come back to the fairgrounds to campout, talk VWs and buggies and listen to musical entertainment.
This event is BYOB for anyone who wishes to drink Saturday night.
Sunday morning the swap meet starts off early with setup at 7 am and runs until around 3 pm.
During the swap meet we will have a car cruise-in, split the pot raffle and door prizes.
All enthusiast vehicles are welcome for the car show. Winners of the show classes will be determined by people's choice. Get your friends to vote for your car!
The event is in late April and we hope to have excellent weather. No matter what it is sure to be a fun time with many fellow VW, off road and automotive enthusiasts gathering.
All parts and classic car related vendors are welcome. This includes other VW parts sellers.
There are also sponsorship opportunities for door prizes, music, the car show and other events in the swap.
Please contact us with sponsorship inquiries.
