Welcome to The North Alabama Volkswagen Club. Our group is made up of water and aircooled Volkswagen enthusiasts from North Alabama and the surrounding areas. Together, we formed the NAVWC to help promote and spread our passion for VW’s. We also gather together to discuss what’s new in the world of Volkswagen, check out each other’s rides, cruise, and sometimes just hang out.
We also host an annual car show, called Bug’n In July, to benefit our sponsored charity, Crisis Services of North Alabama. This year, there’s been a few changes made to our show. It’s now a one-day show and while it’s still in Decatur, it’s in a much better location. Check out the Bug’n page for all the details.
If you’d like some more information on the North Alabama Volkswagen Club, please contact us or check out our membership section. You can also come sit in on one of our monthly business meetings or our informal Get-Togethers and cruises throughout the year. The locations are subject to change, so check the meeting section before heading out to make sure we’re there!
The 6th annual Cruisin’ Through The Canyon for a CURE is just a few weeks away! Proceeds from this awesome ride will be donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation for cancer research.

From there we’ll cruise down the road just a bit to the Priceville show. The show is very laid back, just $10 to enter which enters you in the chances for door prizes (Ten $100.00 cash prizes and a 350 Chevy Engine will be given away, and there will be a 50/50 raffle). There’s going to be lots of cool custom cars here as it’s open to all makes, models, and years.

August 2nd is the 1st Saturday of the month so that means the Swiss Pantry will be making fresh donuts! It was suggested at the last cruise in that we cruise up there for some donuts (glazed, chocolate covered, and everyone’s favorite, maple). It’s not that long a trip and the route takes us through some scenic countryside. We’ll meet up at the Publix on Winchester Road in Huntsville on August 2nd, at 8:30 AM and then around 9 AM. Hope everyone can make it!
If you’re looking for a good place to have lunch, the Swiss Pantry can make you a delicious sandwich and you can ride down to the old Mill nearby.
