If you have had enough “car stuff” you can head south to Atlanta, Indiana, and visit The Atlanta Festival. These events are just a short drive from Kokomo. Saturday PM September, 24th Something different this year is the Saturday evening concert. We will begin the Cruise-In at the traditional 4:00 PM start time. Hotel California "A Salute to the Eagles" from Lake Arrowhead, California will take the stage for the 12th Annual Roger S. Wright Oktoberfest Volkswagen Cruise-In. The opening acts will be pleasing to the ear and pave the way for Hotel California to take us back in time. If you would like a great parking spot you will want to come a little early. Multiple food vendors and several Volkswagen merchandise vendors will once again be onsite. If you prefer to take a stroll to our thriving downtown to visit our fine restaurant/pubs or peruse several of our downtown merchants, the park offers a walking path just for that! Volkswagens, Volkswagen Parts, Volkswagen Merchandise, Food, Live Music; this is always an incredible evening in Kokomo, Indiana! Sunday, September 25th We will meet at the Courtyard by Marriott for a 9:00 AM breakfast in a private dining area. This will give us an opportunity to say good-bye to our special guests and some of the finest people on the planet.
