Volksfest 2007 was a tremendous success!  Our 17th annual Volkswagen Show & Swap Meet was held on August 11, 2007 at Watkins Memorial High School in Pataskala, Ohio.  With picture-perfect weather and another great turnout of show cars (307), swap vendors (72) and several thousand spectators, it was another great day of vintage VW fun!  If you couldn't make it to the show, just look below.  We brought some of the show to you!  Be sure to check out the complete awards list, too.
