April 16, 2023 - Kelley Park Spring Meet
San Jose, California

The Golden Gate Chapter of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America will be hosting their 38th Annual Spring Meet at History San Jose at Kelley Park in San Jose on Sunday, April 16 from 8 am to 3 pm. All air-cooled VW's are welcome.

All cars entering the park MUST register for the car show and MUST park in their respective class. There will be NO pre-registration for either the car show or swap. You will queue up in the bottom parking lot and pay at the gate and register your car at the club booth after you park your car inside the park. Because of park concerns with people leaving early in their cars before the show ends, we ask if you think you have to leave early that you please park your car outside and walk-in. If you would like to be a sponsor or a vendor please contact Jan Peters at email synkro.digitalspacemail8.net or phone 650-207-1950 or Rick Spohn at raspohn@gmail.com or phone 408-683-0154.

Please note there is NO alcohol, NO pets, and NO BBQ's allowed inside the park. These are park rules and must be obeyed. The park has asked us to make sure everyone packs up and leaves immediately after the show is over. This has become a problem in the past and has jeopardized our club to continue to have the show at the park.

The Holiday Inn Express located at 17035 Condit Road in Morgan Hill will be the host hotel. All you have to do is click on the link below and it will direct you to the reservation page. Enter the dates you want and it will give you a discounted rate.
