About the K-W & Area Bug Club

At the K-W & Area Bug Club, we’re more than just a car club—we’re a passionate community with a purpose. Here’s what makes us unique:

Our Commitment to Giving Back

As a registered not-for-profit incorporation, we’re dedicated to supporting worthy causes. Our mission is to make the communities where our members live and work more vibrant through acts of giving.

Growing Together

Our membership base is thriving, and our presence extends far and wide across Southern Ontario’s massive VW enthusiasts’ community. We’re not just a club; we’re a recognized force in the VW world.

Acknowledged and Appreciated

We’ve earned recognition from:

  • Other VW Groups and Events: Our passion for VWs resonates with enthusiasts and fellow clubs from all over the world.
  • Clubs Celebrating All Makes and Models: Our inclusive spirit stands out.
  • Charitable Organizations: They appreciate our commitment to community impact.
  • Corporations and Businesses: They seek our support for their community initiatives.

Staying Connected

Our active social media platforms keep us linked to the broader VW community. Whether it’s sharing stories, organizing events, or celebrating VW milestones, we’re always connected.

Bug Out: Our Flagship Event

Bug Out is our pride and joy — being the longest continuously held VW show event in Canada. Held in partnership with the Optimist Club of KW, it takes place near Heidelberg, Ontario, in the heart of the Kitchener-Waterloo region.

Making an Impact

  • The general admission proceeds from Bug Out directly benefit the Optimist Club’s youth programs. It’s our way of giving back to the community that supports us.
  • Throughout the year, we channel funds generated at Bug Out to local charities across Southern Ontario.
  • Some of the event proceeds cover the costs of running the show and maintaining our status as an insured, registered not-for-profit incorporation.
