Vanlife Diaries + Idle Bus Theory are teaming up to host the first ever Taos VanlifeDiaries Gathering! There are so many cool workshops at this one, and so many great folks. If you haven’t gone to a vanlife gathering yet, might I suggest this be your first? Vanlife Diaries gatherings are a great way to meet the community!
FREE TO THE PUBLIC
The show will feature built-out Mercedes Sprinters (mostly) 4x4 rigs, accessories to view and buy for your rig or van, and more. Come out and meet the builders, network with vanlifers, check out all kinds of cool workmanship and things maybe you’ve never seen, learn something new.
There will be product demos and a section for van owners to park and network.
There will be food and beer. And a show in the Amphitheater both of the nights.
The United Tiny House Association is bringing their very popular, and for-charity, Tiny LIVING Festival to Tennessee. This is an awesome event for folks interested in seeing a wide variety of ‘larger’ TINY options like skoolies, tiny houses, box truck conversions, gypsy wagons, and of course a good handful of vans. I went to their Georgia event earlier this year and it was great!
