7 Epic Vanlife Gatherings to Check Out in 2023

Mark your calendars and join the Noovo crew for some epic Vanlife gatherings in 2023! We’ll be rolling on through with brand-new van builds, games, prizes, and of course, espresso!

We’d love to meet you and hear all about your vanlife adventures. These events are a highlight and for good reason! You’ll get a chance to connect with our diverse Vanlife community, and you’ll learn all about the latest Vanlife hacks and technology on four wheels.

We made our debut expo appearances at The Adventure Van Expos in Lake Tahoe and Big Bear, California in 2022, and they were a huge success!

Because our cozy, functional, fully-equipped homes on wheels were a crowd favorite, we’re coming back for more this year! And, not to mention, we had to opportunity to meet so many amazing humans in the Vanlife community. We really do have the coolest community on the planet, and you can bet those experiences left us hungry for more!

What can you expect at this year’s shows?

Get excited for family-friendly Vanlife fun for all ages. These expos are filled with live entertainment, insightful talks, delicious eats, and refreshing local brews in gorgeous locations. Enjoy warm community vibes and explore the nomadic lifestyle!

We’ll be serving espresso from our Noovo vans (another crowd favorite!) and setting up the ultimate lounge experiences in our space. Think naps in our hammock, mingling with the community, games, prizes, and Noovo fun for all! This year, we’ll have exciting new builds that we’ll unveil for the first time for you!
