Open Roads Fest

Van life is about freedom, forging your own path, and making fun a non-negotiable. If you’re an aspiring or current van lifer who loves the outdoors, this event is for you. Open Roads Fest is an all-ages camper van festival packed with outdoor activities, workshops, and social events for van lifers, tent campers, and the road-trippin’ community.

While we will not be hosting an event in 2023, we hope to be back in full force in 2024. Sign up for our email list to get updates and to be the first to know about our next event.

You don’t need a van to join us at Open Roads! 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 lands we explore —oh, and to have a total blast while doing it.

Open Roads is calling. Are you ready?
