Bugs on the Hooch 2022

May 27, 2022 - May 29, 2022

A free all VW show on the banks of the Chattahoochee River. Columbus Georgia.
This is our 11th year putting on this show. And it’s promising to be the best one yet!
Why do you ask?
Bugs on the Hooch 2022 now is a three day event!!!
FREE camping Friday and Saturday.
We will start with folks wanting to setup camping onsite. We’re right next to the river so bring your fishing gear. Bait shop right next door.
There’s a bike path running right through the show site. There will be plenty of green grass and things for the kiddos.
Saturday is the big Volkswagon show!
We make the coolest trophies and plaques. All made by Scumbugs Vintage Vws.
Best of Show, Best Paint, Best Interior, Best Engine and Peoples Choice. Also we make Top 35 wooden plaques.
There will be plenty of food concessions and sweets so come hungry.
There’s a FREE Swap meet, so bring stuff you’d like to sell, or just buy what you need while you’re there.
You’ll be able to watch the huge civil war cannon fire off a salvo at high noon Saturday. That is a MUST SEE!😳
Last year we had a quality drone race setup near the campsite. I’ll post more info as we get it.
Sunday,…….you’ll be treated to another FREE car show. Our last show we had over 160 cool vintage cars and we expect even a larger number this year.
Stay for the Sunday show OR, do some fun things like whitewater rafting and zip lines over at “Whitewater Express”. Maybe ride the Riverwalk on a rental bike from “Ride On” bikes.
It goes without saying, you’ve got to see two of the coolest military museums anywhere. $5 for the National Civil War Naval museum. The National Infantry Museum. (NIM) Free!
Do all this while showing our military how much we appreciate them.
Follow along for other special additions to this totally FREE weekend getaway.

Oh sure, you could come back here week after week to look for a list of car stuff to do, but why bother? 

The advantage of our emails when compared to anyone else's email program is that we can do radius mapping.  If you tell us the zip code for where you live (or work) and how far you'd travel to attend an event, we'll send you a list of events in your desired travel area. 

That should leave you plenty of time to polish the car.
