My father was a mechanic and auto body man.  So, I grew up around all different types of cars, oil changes, and an occasional burn out.  All I know is there is something just so intriguing about a Volkswagen.  So interesting to me that when I was in middle school, I dreamed about owning a Volkswagen bug.  I wanted it to be painted pink and have splattered paint designs all over it.  I even had matching sunglasses.  I forgot all about that dream until I ran across and Volkswagen enthusiast event called the Tannehill VolksJam 2020!

I had a chance to have a quick message conversation with Adam Simpson who is a Volkswagen enthusiast and one of the coordinators of the Tannehill VolksJam.  He mentioned that “in 2014 we changed the name to VolksJam.  It has been the longest running and largest VW show in Alabama. People drive from Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana drive up every year. We have even had attendees come from as far as California and central Mexico.”  That is a pretty dope following.

According to the Tannehill VolksJam 2020! Facebook Event page, they noted the following “Join us once again in beautiful and historic Tannehill State Park for the largest and longest running Volkswagen show in Alabama!   Registration begins at 9am and ends at 12pm. $10 for show car entry. $5 for swap space, $15 for new parts vendor. The park charges an entry fee but there is no additional fee for spectators to enter the show area. Camping is available on site through the park itself. This an easy going, laid back event so no acting like an idiot, driving recklessly, doing burnouts, you get the idea.  Saturday August 22, 2020 from 9 am until 3 pm at Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park.”  Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park is located at 12632 Confederate Pkwy, McCalla, AL 35111.

If you are Volkswagen owner, lover, or both be sure to visit the Tannehill VolksJam 2020 on Saturday August 22, 2020.  I think there will be some great Volkswagen views to check out and Volkswagen networking.
