3 Fall Festivals to Head to in Your RV
1. 14th Annual Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival
Not every festival that happens in the fall has to be one that’s themed for the season. The Joshua Tree Music Festival takes place twice a year, in the spring and fall. This year the fall festival runs from October 10 – 13, 2019. You are welcome to just come for the day and stay off-site or you can get an RV pass (if your RV is over 17 feet) or car pass (if you’re under 17 fee). While there aren’t hookups at the campsite locations for the festival, they do have hot showers and cool down showers and they allow the use of quiet generators within the set time requirements.
During the day you can spend time listening to the music of up and coming artists and enjoy the camaraderie of creatives throughout the event. Then, at night or if you just need a break from the heat and crowds, you can head back to your RV. A great option is the easy to pull and affordable Jayco Hummingbird travel trailer. You can have the comfort of your own bed, instead of sleeping in a tent, the convenience of a kitchen to help keep your festival costs down, and a bathroom. While the campsite doesn’t provide hookups, you can use tips from the video linked here to learn options for your water supply while boondocking.
This festival also puts you near some stunning views of the National Park and near some of the best hiking in the country.
2. Hood River Harvest Fest
3. Healdsburg Crush
While Healdsburg Crush is not necessarily a festival and only takes place on one day, October 20th, we thought it was worth a mention if you’re looking for a fun place to do some wine sampling. This is a 21+ event, so it’s not something to bring the kiddos too. But, you can enjoy several hours of sampling products from over 60 different wineries. All the proceeds from the event go to the Boys & Girls Club, so you can feel good that you’re supporting a good cause while enjoying your day as well.
While this event only lasts for one afternoon, the area provides plenty of beautiful vineyards and wineries for you to check out. You can turn the trip into a weekend adventure by packing up the RV to see the surrounding area. You and your partner will be comfortable in something like a class B Airstream Interstate Grand Tour that provides you with an easy way to travel around while keeping your home base with you.
