Cincinnati, Ohio -- Members of FMCA, the world's largest nonprofit association for recreation vehicle owners, will gather in Tucson, Arizona, March 20 through 23, 2024, to enjoy good times and activities related to RV life. More than a thousand RVs will converge on the Pima County Fairgrounds for FMCA's 108th International Convention & RV Expo, with the theme of "Fiesta Del Sol." The celebration isn't just for FMCA members. Anyone interested in the RV lifestyle is invited to participate.

“Whether you've been an active RV traveler for years or are still dreaming of hitting the road, this event is for you," FMCA CEO Chris Smith said. "RV owners are some of the nicest people to be found, and FMCA events offer a great way to spend time with those who share your passion for RV life. And if you're still in the research phase and want to learn more about RVing, you won't find a better opportunity than this get-together in Tucson.”

As noted, members of the public are encouraged to join the festivities. Various options are available. Folks who already own an RV are invited to come stay on site in their home on wheels to take full advantage of all the activities. The gate registration price for that is $270 and also grants RV owners who are new to FMCA a one-year FMCA membership. (An additional fee is charged for electric.)

Individuals considering the purchase of an RV may wish to come just for the RV Expo and tour the recreation vehicles and other exhibits. Single-day admission for the RV Expo costs $10 per person or $25 for a family of three or more; children 12 and under are admitted free with an accompanying adult. Individuals with an active military ID are admitted free as well. RV Expo exhibit hours are Wednesday, March 20, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, March 21 and 22, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Saturday, March 23, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The day pass for Wednesday, March 20, also will be good for Thursday, March 21.

For a deeper immersion, FMCA suggests that individuals sign up for a Daily Passport that covers not only the RV Expo but all seminars and entertainment (everything but on-site RV parking). A Daily Passport costs $50 per day per person.

On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, March 21, 22, and 23, a seminar geared expressly for people exploring the idea of RV ownership will take place with a panel of RV owners sharing their knowledge. "Is There An RV Adventure In Your Future?" will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on those dates in the Hall of Champions (Seminar 11). The seminar is included as part of the regular admission fee.

Free public parking will be available by entering the Pima County Fairgrounds via Gate C off Brekke Road.
