Is The Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show Happening In 2021?

Quartzsite, Arizona is a small town of around 4,000 people in the middle of the Mojave desert. Each year in January, the population swells to over 750,000. Many of those people are RVers, which makes this yearly event the largest gathering of RVers in the world.

The vacationers, nomads, and weekend warriors that arrive are there for the rock, mineral, and gem shows, as well as the numerous flea markets in the area. One of those shows is the Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show, which drew about 150,000 people last year.

What to expect at the Quartzsite RV Show in 2021

The show boasts hundreds of vendors selling a vast array of RV related products and services. RVers come to get solar panels, generators, gadgets, remodeling advice, and much more. The event is free to attend, and the plethora of low cost and free boondocking around the area has added to the popularity of the RV show over the years.

One of the huge draws going to Quartzsite is the boondocking opportunities. There are acres and acres of BLM land that one can temporarily claim for themselves. For both veteran and newbie RVers, the vast open space in the moderate winter temperatures of the Mojave is the perfect way to get off the grid.

Mike and Jennifer Wendland of RV Lifestyle put together a rather comprehensive video about their experience borrowing their friend’s RV and boondocking in Quartzsite.

Many consumer surveys are saying that RVing might be America’s next go-to vacation style as we navigate the land of social distancing. With many RV shows opting to go virtual, many people are wondering what will become of the Quartzsite gathering this January?

Kenny King, event founder and co-promoter of the Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show, has stated that they are in contact with Quartzsite’s town manager.

 “After laying out our new safety procedures and preparedness for the 2021 show that includes mandatory facial coverings, wider aisles with one-way-only traffic, protective barriers between exhibits and multiple hand-sanitizing stations throughout the show grounds, we were given a provisional green light to proceed as planned for 2021 with the understanding that guidelines may change in the next six months.”

Said King

It seems like the Quartzsite gathering is still an option this winter. Kenny King and his daughter said they would continue to work with Quartzsite and La Paz County, as well as the State of Arizona, to provide a safe event. They also stated they are confident the 38th Annual Quartzsite, Vacation & Show, will proceed as planned on January 16-24, 2021.
