The Florida Vanlife Gathering comes to Central Florida in February

Get ready to start those engines, because vanlife is coming to Central Florida in a big way next month.

The Florida Vanlife Gathering is a weekend-long event for both the hard-core van fan and the simply van-curious to learn more about this burgeoning mobile lifestyle trend. The Gathering will feature 250 camper vans, vendors, workshops, live music and product demos.

“Vanlife has evolved from being a socially ‘fringe’ movement in 2016 to being a borderline mainstream lifestyle in a post-pandemic world. Our hope is that the people of Florida come out, enjoy themselves and see what vanlife is all about,” says Josh Theberge, co-founder of event organizers Vanlife Outfitters, in a press statement.

The Florida Vanlife Gathering is set to happen Feb. 3-6 in Withlachoochee River Park in nearby Dade City. Day passing and camping passes are available to purchase now.
