The Volkswagen Club was started in the summer of 1996 with 10-12 people getting together in a garage to talk VWs. In 1998 the Club hosted its First Annual VW Show and Swap, and we’ve been cruising ever since!

Originally, we were called Chippewa Valley Air-Coolers. Eventually, those who preferred water-cooled were also included and the name became Chippewa Valley Volkswagen Club. The Club incorporated with the State of Wisconsin in July 2017 to protect its members.

Over the years, membership continued to grow, new adventures pursued, and annual traditions established.

The CVVC usually meets regularly to plan Club events and ‘talk shop’. During the warm season, Club members gather for cruises, meet up for meals, attend area car shows, and other entertaining Volkswagen- related activities.
