RVers are marking their calendars for the 2006 show schedule in Quartzsite, Arizona. This tiny desert hamlet bursts at the seams when tens of thousands of RVs converge on Quartzsite for the big rock & mineral shows and the numerous swap meets and flea markets that take place there each winter season.
One of the largest and most popular of the local venues is the Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show. This huge show takes place in the "BIG TENT", just 1/2 mile South of Interstate 10 on State Highway 95. The dates for the 23rd Annual Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show are January 21st through January 29th.
And in 2006 this huge event is expanding. Promoter Kenny King explained, "We turned away well over 100 exhibitors last year due to lack of booth space. In 2006 we are increasing the square footage of the main structure by 40%. This not only allows us to accommodate 128 additional booths, it increases our aisle width to 13' from 10'. This will really help in respect to traffic flow and safety."
There is no charge for admission or parking at this spectacular event that is now billed as the largest consumer attended RV Show in the US! The attendance for the 2005 show was estimated at well over 150,000 and the numerous RV related exhibits included the "who's who" of the RV Industry. There were several hundred new and used RV's on display along with over a dozen service bays offering immediate installation, repairs & service on many of the items that were exhibited at the show.
