NSVWA deeply regrets that we have had to raise our entry fees to our show. We have tried very hard to hold the line on our expenses, in order to offer the VW enthusiast an honest car show value for their dollar. Unfortunately, site rental, insurance, security and fees charged to us by the City of Knoxville, have forced us to raise these prices. NSVWA will continue to offer the VW scene one of the most entertaining, educational, user friendly shows on the East Coast. Thank you all for your continued support.
