In 2024 we will again make the trip from Rotterdam to Kefalonia with a number of beetles to participate in the 10th Ionian VolksFest.
Classic Volkswagens from all over Europe gather on Kefalonia for five days of sun, beaches, excursions, Greek food and live music. For us it will be the fifth time we have attended this amazing event and the second time we have taken the beetles to Greece.
