Open Roads Fest: A van life festival like no other

Van life is about forging your own path, calling your own shots and making fun a non-negotiable.

Open Roads Fest is an all-ages van life festival packed with outdoor adventure, workshops, and social events for the road trippin’ community. Stay tuned for 2020 dates!

Whether you’re committed to life on the road or just want to see if van life is for you, Open Roads welcomes all van life enthusiasts: Sprinters, Promasters, Ford Transits, Vanagons, Truck Campers, and curious tent campers.

Our mission is to build community,  share knowledge and foster a deep respect for the public lands we explore —oh, and to have a total blast while doing it.

Open Roads is calling. Are you ready?
