We’ll be back in 2020, from 21-23 August at the Norfolk Showground

We founded VW Whitenoise Festival in Norfolk in 2002 and after 5 successful years at Euston Park, near Thetford want to return the event to beautiful Norwich, where we live, and to a site kinder to lowered vehicles and their owners, with plenty of undercover options if it rains. The Norfolk Showground makes it really easy for people to join Whitenoise for the day too. Whitenoise was held at the Showground in 2012 and 2013 and we are back now for the foreseeable future, always the third weekend in August (the only summer date available).

Thank-you all for your patience and we’re sorry for any disappointment caused to your 2019 plans. Any competition winner tickets will be honoured in 2020.

We cannot wait to welcome you once again in 2020 to our 17th event!

The Whitenoise Story so far…

What started as 200 people coming together to celebrate their love of Volkswagens, camping and music in 2002 has grown into an annual gathering of up to 10,ooo festivalgoers, friends and families bringing their eclectic vehicles, caravans, bicycles and quite often the dog too. We are the original Norfolk VW Festival.

Performers and DJs have included The Neville Staple Band, Dreadzone, Shades of Rhythm, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Beach Boys UK, DJ Chrome, The Allergies and Norman Jay MBE.

The music line-up, sound and staging, sets our car show apart.

Join us 21-23 August 2020 at the Norfolk Showground for a fantastic Norwich Festival.

Thanks to all of you who were #partofit in 2018 at Euston Park. Here’s some memories made…

Whitenoise Winners 2018

Frank Spencer presented the Show n Shine winners with stunning trophies, a splash of cash and a cheeky wink! He also congratulated our Deluxe Resto Shop sponsored ‘Otherness’ and Retro Custom Bike competition victors.

Many thanks to all who drove and pedalled up, especially on the Sunday which was forecast to rain and rain and rain (it didn't).

Our marvellous 2018 sponsors and supporters were:
