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!
March 1st 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 March 1st, at 9 AM and then leave shortly after. This won’t be an all day cruise, as we have to be back in Decatur by 4pm to get ready for the Mardi Gras parade. Hope everyone can make it!
On March 1, the NAVWC will be participating in the Carnegie Carnival Mardi Gras parade in downtown Decatur. We will all meet up at the Jack’s restaurant on 6th avenue at 4pm and then ride over to the staging area to line up for the parade. The cost for entering in the parade has already been paid for so just show up and have fun!

We decided to postpone tonight’s Bug’n in July planning session to next Tuesday night, Feb. 18, due to the dangerous road conditions. Everyone stay home and stay warm! If you’re out because of work, be safe!
Due to inclement weather, we are canceling the January General Meeting. We will still have our 3rd Saturday get-together at Mellow Mushroom on the 18th.
Stay safe and warm!
Every year the NAVWC hosts a charity car show called “Bug’n in July.” And every year, we take the proceeds from each show and make a donation to our sponsored charity, Crisis Services of North Alabama. This year we may have been a little behind, but yesterday club members Dolphe, Daryl, and Todd went to Crisis Services to hand over a “little” check.

The NAVWC would like to thank everyone that came out to support our 2013 Bug’n in July show. We’d also like to thank the sponsors that donated time, money, or door prizes. Bug’n in July couldn’t have happened without y’all!
