BC Interior RV show

Anybody with an RV knows that it’s more than just an accessory--it’s a lifestyle!

There is a lot of enjoyment to be found in an RV, and much to be learned about the different models, designs, and RV parts and accessories unique to each one.

From April 21st until April 23rd, the B.C Interior RV Show will return to the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre and the South Okanagan Events Centre (853 Eckhardt Ave. West) for two days of free practical tips and education, a number of RV exhibitors, and the chance to get up close and personal with some of the best brands in the industry.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a new RV, the B.C Interior RV Show is a great weekend activity to get involved in.

What’s There To Do?

The B.C Interior RV Show is the largest outdoor RV show in the B.C Interior. This year’s show encompasses nine acres, of which 80,000 square feet takes place indoors.

Factory representatives from major RV brands will be on site to share product knowledge, industry tips, and respond to any questions you may have about a specific brand. This year, 37 RV exhibitors will be at the show, providing an excellent diversity of everything from RV repair products, to solar equipment, satellite systems, and RV travel and leisure products.

The first event kicks off at 12:00 p.m on April 21st with opening ceremonies. Five seminars take place that day, wrapping up with an interesting segment on how to go off the grid in your RV. Saturday’s events wrap up at 7:00 p.m and Sunday’s end at 4:00 p.m.

How Much Does the RV Show Cost?

There is a $5.00 admission fee for the weekend for those who wish to attend the B.C Interior RV Show. You can purchase a weekend wristband once you arrive at the doors, but note that it’s cash only. The wristband is valid for the entire weekend, and grants you free access to all workshops and seminars. If you’re bringing children under the age of 15, their admission is free.

Parking for the RV show is also free, but also limited. The B.C Interior RV Show kindly asks attendees not to bring their RVs down to the parking site, due to the lack of space. You may, however, park your RV on nearby Alberni Street and Eckhardt Avenue, but note that they will be towed if left overnight!

There is a request that all visitors to the show also bring one non-perishable food item to be donated to a local charity.
