Dub Vacation is a family holiday for borderline sane owners and lovers of VWs. It was started in 2011 by Brett Hawksbee, founder of ‘Bug Jam’, co-founder of the VWDRC, and veteran promoter of more than 150 VW events over the past 30 years. It is held annually in Suffolk (2020 is the 9th event).

It’s an event for all ages; groups of adults and families attend in similar numbers. It is as relaxed or as busy as you choose. Dub Vacation is not extensively advertised, relying of ‘word of mouth’, and a little online media, because it is an event for limited numbers to do many different things through the week, and would not work with huge attendance.

Booking early is advised, especially to guarantee hook-ups, but we have never yet refused anyone a place at the event. There are major activities every day, and lots of workshops throughout the week.

Dub Vacation is truly inexpensive for what is in effect an ‘activity holiday’ for adults as well as kids. We are reviving a Bus Jam type content on the weekend of Dub Vacation which will be full of bands, show & shine, fun competitions and much more! The price includes all camping charges, depending on your arrival option, and includes entertainment every evening, and most of the workshops and feature activities throughout the week. (Some have a small charge for materials.)

Apart from being different in that it is a full week-long VW event, it is also very much a ‘participation’ event and many who come also showcase their own special skills. Die-hard regulars now run free classes themselves, from belly dancing to festival headband making, and for the kids, painting pottery, face-painting classes, build a boxcar for the kids (indoor) kids drive-in movie, and much more. We’re one big family … but one that welcomes new members with open arms. Join us for 2020!

A full list of workshops and entertainment will be published soon - watch this space!
