A new event celebrating the ever-growing ‘vanlife’ community is coming to Elvington Airfield, York, on Saturday 28th May.

Vanlove Fest will bring together those who share an interest in the freedom of ‘life on the road’ for one of the first meet-ups of the summer. Organisers will make the event as inclusive as possible, with campervans, motorhomes, self-builds, manufacturer vehicles and everything in between welcome to attend.

‘Vanlifers’ can expect talks and discussions from influencers in the scene, entertainment stretching from comedy to live music, traders and exhibitors, awards, and more activities throughout the day.

Vanlove Fest will take place at the stunning Elvington Airfield, near York, with vehicles parking up on its 2.5 mile-long runway. After its RAF history, Elvington has hosted many successful world record attempts, including a number of land speed records, and the world’s fastest wheelie bin!

Purchases of campervans, motorhomes, and self-build projects saw a huge boom during Covid-19, with more and more people wanting to experience the great outdoors of the UK and beyond. Freedom, simplicity and minimalism is what’s attracting people to this way of life, being able to escape from the fast-moving pace of the wider world. The UK now has more than 250,000 leisure vehicles on the road today!

Organisers said: “We fell in love with motorhoming during the pandemic, using a campervan to help deliver a national tour of drive-in events called Car Park Party. We were astounded how engaged and positive the scene is around this lifestyle and are excited to put on an event celebrating this movement that we believe will continue to grow and grow. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to York.”
