Off-Road Vehicles, Boats, RVs, Travel Trailers and Special Attractions Set To Kick-Off Fall Outdoor Recreation Season, November 16-17, 2019 in Lake Havasu

With cooler Arizona temperatures on the way in a couple of months, recreation enthusiasts begin the seasonal transition to fall and winter outdoor activities like camping, fishing, travel and off-roading. This means Southwest residents and vacationing visitors alike are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to enjoy everything that local deserts, mountains, rivers and lakes have to offer.

As it has for the past seven years, the official kick-off of approaching fall and winter recreational sports is the 8th Annual Sand-Water-RV Expo, the premier motorsports show in Arizona. The Expo returns to Lake Havasu City, November 16-17 for its eighth consecutive year. And again for 2019, the Expo is growing, twenty-five percent bigger and better than ever with over 145 exhibitors and vendors eager to display everything for the coming season including the newest and greatest in off-road vehicles, UTVs, trucks, Jeeps, RVs, travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers, boats, pontoons, wakesport boats, motorcycles, bicycles, kayaks, paddleboards and all related accessories and services.

One thing visitors to the 2019 Expo will immediately notice upon arrival is a totally new and larger show footprint, now occupying two side-by-side venues, Windsor Lot 3 & 4 at Lake Havasu State Park. This new floorplan also invites Expo visitors to conveniently park for free inside the venue. Upon entrance to the Expo, visitors are also encouraged to sign-up and participate in a free “poker run” where vendor/exhibitor card stops will be located throughout the Expo. At the end of the day, collected cards will be revealed to determine the winners of many valuable prizes.

On-the-water, kayakers, paddleboarders and Hobie Cat sailors will also seek their own form of adventure during the two-day Expo, as Lake Havasu Paddlefest is once again part of the Sand-Water-RV Expo on Windsor 4 beach. Paddlefest welcomes all non-motorized craft to join in for a weekend of games, activities, demos, and instructions. There’s also the opportunity to win one of two Hobie kayaks as the raffle grand prize. For participant convenience, over-night dry camping is also available on-site. Event pre-registration for Paddlefest is strongly recommended.   

The Sand-Water-RV Expo is presented by JetRenu with co-sponsorship support from Sunshine RV of Lake Havasu. The Expo will be open to the public from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, November 16 and on Sunday, November 17 from 9pm to 3pm.  Adult admission is only $5.00, children 6 and under are free and on-site parking is also free.  If you’d like to make the Expo a two-day affair, 2-Day VIP discount admission passes will be available at the Expo ticket office on Saturday, November 16. Food, beverage and beer garden concessions are on-site, dogs okay on leash.  The Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 3 & 4 venue is located on London Bridge Road approximately one-half mile north of the London Bridge directly behind the Hampton Inn.

Exhibitor space applications still being accepted. For additional information and the latest updates regarding Expo exhibitors, special attractions/entertainment, and vendor opportunities, please visit http://www.sandandwaterexpo.com or email info@sandandwaterexpo.com.
