Bug-a-Paluza 2021

« on: January 20, 2021, 06:19:36 PM »


Bug-a-Palüza will be held April 10, 2021 at First Horizon Pavilion in Chattanooga, TN.

We hate to change this at the last minute, but it was not our choice. Unfortunately, the park declined to move forward with hosting our event and left us with no option except to change venues. Bug-a-Palüza will now be a one day event in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Please note that if you were previously registered for Bug-a-Palüza 2020 and did not choose to refund or donate your fee, your registration will be automatically carried over to 2021.

This large festival features a VW car show with classes for air-cooled and water-cooled, and a huge swap meet with vendors selling new and used parts. Plu plenty of food, contests, prizes, and more. Custom trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each class.

All event proceeds benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga. In previous years, we donated over $25,000. Help us top that for 2021!

Spectator entrance is just $5 per person for the entire weekend. Children 12 and under admitted free.

Show car registration - $20 per vehicle, or $10 for a non-judged spot. All vehicles must be pre-registered, there will be no extra space the day of the show.

Swap meet registration - $20 for a 10'x20' space (the length of one parking space). Multiple vendor spaces can be purchased to accommodate larger vendors.

Bug-a-Palüza is a rain or shine event. Pets are allowed on a leash per the park rules/city ordinances. You are responsible for picking up after your pet.
