Every year, on the third Sunday of October, Chirco puts on one of the largest air-cooled VW shows in the Western Region of the United States.
Our three day event takes place right here in Tucson, AZ at the Chirco facility.
Day 1: We start with the Red Barn Round up on Friday.
Day 2: Then on Saturday we line up our VW beetles, VW Busses, Volkswagen Things, Air-Cooled Karmann Ghia’s, all air-cooled VW sand rails, and dune buggies and take a cruise around the desert of Tucson.
Day 3: Then we end with a big bang on Sunday with our actual car show.
Every year we have event T-Shirts for sale and continue to sell them throughout the year. Didn’t get a chance to get your Bugtoberfest shirt? Here it is!
