Picnic Point

The NYC Volkswagen Traffic Jam is a spectator-judged vintage Volkswagen car show and picnic on Governors Island. With views of New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty behind a vibrant line-up of nearly 100 Beetles, buses, dune buggies, things and other original VW’s circa 1950s-1970s, this car show is a one of a kind event for both the casual spectator and classic VW enthusiast.
