VW Expo returns to Barceloneta starting Friday

By The Star Staff

The Volkswagen Expo (“Concentración de Volkswagen”), which in past editions has drawn large numbers of VW brand enthusiasts from around Puerto Rico, returns once again to Juan Padró Sports Complex in Barceloneta from Friday to Sunday.

“We are sure that participation will surpass all previous editions,” event coordinator Javier Solá said in a written communication. “We have seen more than 600 Volkswagen vehicles in past editions and we hope to set a new record this year.”

Solá noted that participants will be able to enjoy exhibitions, competitions, talks about the history of the vehicles and more. Local dining options, music, artisans, and accessories will also be sold.

Beyond being an automotive event, the expo has a strong community commitment organized by Hurtimando Cuellos VW, a nonprofit entity that focuses on health and support for low-income people with adverse medical conditions.

“We have positively impacted the community by donating electrical appliances to the homes of people with medical conditions and limited resources, improving their quality of life,” said Elier Matos, president of Hurtimando Cuellos VW.

“The Volkswagen Expo is an opportunity to unite in love for the brand and support the social work we do,” he added.

The event will run from 7 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday, and from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
