Outdoorsy, the largest and most trusted RV rental and outdoor experiences marketplace, has launched more than 500 informative and user-friendly event guides. The guides, which serve as both pre-trip inspiration and day-of navigational how-tos, feature events that fall into three categories: Events where you can camp on-site, like NASCAR races and the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta; events you can attend in an RV, like an NFL tailgate and Outside Lands music festival; and events you can attend while just passing through, like the Minnesota State Fair and Cheyenne Frontier Days.
“RVs make events and festivals accessible in a whole new way,” says Jen Young, Outdoorsy’s co-founder and chief marketing officer. “We wanted to open up options to our first time and returning renters — to show them RV travel possibilities, including activities and accommodations, they may not have considered before.”
Travelers can expect to find informative event descriptions, answers to common questions, ticket purchasing info, ideas on where to camp nearby, what gear to pack, places to eat, driving directions, and parking and camping guidelines — all paired with curated rental options, from Class C RVs and campervans to teardrop trailers and truck campers.
In addition to these insider tips and tricks, the new guides also soon showcase reviews and photos from past attendees. The event guides include:
- 150+ concerts and music festivals, including Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits
- 100+ sporting events, including NFL tailgates and Nembafest
- 60+ motorsports venues and events, including the Indianapolis 500 and Texas Motor Speedway
- 50+ cultural festivals, including the Scarborough Renaissance Festival
- 40+ rodeos and livestock shows, including Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
- 40+ food festivals, including Wurstfest and the Great American Beer Festival
- 40+ state fairs, including the California State Fair and the Arizona State Fair
The launch of these event guides comes on the heels of a new Outdoorsy feature for its users — the ability for travelers to share photos from past trips and offer personal tips and reviews on the best hikes to do, sights to see, and campgrounds to stay at when planning an Outdoorsy trip. The event guides will complement Outdoorsy’s growing library of 2,000-plus national and state park guides, which were launched in April to help travelers make the most of their outdoor travel.
“Our national and state park guides were a natural jumping off point to inspire a road trip,” Young says. “For our event guides, we wanted to equip our travelers with the ultimate resource for what they need to know if they want to stay on-site at a festival, plan the ultimate tailgate, or even build a road trip around their favorite annual music festival.”
