Sunday, 20/8     

Exhibition and market next to the Volvo Museum in Arendal.

Exhibition and market adjacent to the Volvo Museum, Arendal. Program between 9.00-16.00. Program items mixed with information and presentations of exciting and interesting Volvo cars, award ceremony for Saturday's VROM rally, etc.

Free entry for exhibitors and visitors. No pre-registration required.

NOTE! The exhibition area looks a bit different this year as we will not be able to use the large fenced area that we normaly used because of a visiting passenger ship. The car exhibition and the market are therefore moved to what was used as a visitor parking last year.
