Palm trees, bikinis, the beach and VWs… It was the perfect recipe for the fifth annual WinterJam last February.
Taking place in downtown Daytona Beach, FL at the City Island Festival Grounds, the new venue hosted thousands of air- and water-cooled Volkswagens with more than 4000 enthusiasts in town for the weekend. And while WinterJam was previously focused on the air-cooled community, the water-cooled involvement has expanded each year.

The excitement started with a dyno and burnout competition at DeLand airport on the Friday. After the exhaust fumes and smoke had cleared, the streets of downtown DeLand were closed for a block party and BBQ with 200 cars in attendance.

Saturday was for water-cooled Dubs. Named DubJam, 255 cars displayed, ranging from old-school Mk1 Jettas to air-equipped Mk5 GTIs and Audi A4s. That night, a cruise took place to Sonic Drive-in with more than 400 cars in attendance.

On Sunday morning, those who weren’t too hungover made their way to the main event – Volks Jamboree. The diverse air- and water-cooled display filled the grounds with more than 300 cars and 4000 spectators.

Cars from as far as New York made their way to the big show. There were also vendor displays from Unitronic Chipped, Forge Motorsport and Volkswagen of America.

Not just about cars, Sunday featured plenty of lifestyle activities with skate and BMX competitions, live band, DJ and a Ms WinterJam contest.


WinterJam continues to be a popular retreat for Audi/VW fans, which is why folks from Canada, UK, France and Germany were spotted as well.

We expect more good things from WinterJam 2012, so if you need a break from the cold, you might consider Daytona Beach next February.
