WILSON PARK, OCEAN DRIVE, SOUTH FREMANTLE

10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The Shannons Day of the Volkswagen is open to both members and the public to show their VW's or to come along and have a look. It is not restricted to VW branded vehicles, as all vehicles belonging to the VW family (Karmann Ghia, Audi, and Skoda to name a few) are welcome! Its also not about show and fully restored quality, we want you to bring your ride along no matter what the condition.

Over the last 5 years we have had an average of 150 vehicles. A shorter show will see gates open from 8am to 10am for entry with the show running from 10am to approx. 2pm on the day. Trophy presentations commence at 1pm. At the conclusion of the presentation and announcements the gates will re-open for exiting. The gates are locked for the safety of all patrons at the show.

Vehicle entry is $10, while the public can come have a look for free. There will be trophies for a select amount of vehicles. The first 100 vehicles through the gate will recieve a show bag. We encourage you to bring and sell (or pass on) those unwanted parts. The day will include kids activities and of course refreshment vendors.
