Family-Friendly Fun Bayfield Volkfest isn’t just for adults; it’s a family-friendly affair. Bring the kids, the grandparents, and everyone in between. Watch children’s faces light up with joy as they enjoy face painting, games, and a mini VW car show designed just for them. It’s a day of bonding, laughter, and shared experiences.

The Volkfest Cruise: A Journey to Remember

As you continue north on Hwy 21, you’ll pass through The Pinery and Grand Bend, creating a scenic spectacle along the way.
