The thing about the Overland Expo is that it’s nearly impossible to pass an exhibitor’s tent without feeling inspired to mod your rig or add to your overlanding fleet. There are more 350 exhibitors and 450 classes serving over 14,000 attendees. Motorcycles your thing? Check. Four wheels? Done. Tricked out Sprinters? Boom. Refurbished Westies or truck top tents. You betcha.
The classes and seminars are a big draw and fill up early during pre-registration. Topics range from seminars on traveling with kids and choosing the right travel axe to driving skills and advanced technical lessons like welding in the field. Bottom line: There is something for everyone.
Onsite camping is mostly open-field, with temporary toilet facilities brought in for the weekend. There are food trucks on-site, but hours aren’t confirmed, so you may want to bring your own food and cooking gear.
Tickets cannot be purchased on location, so be sure to buy online in advance.
