The RV-friendly facility is located just off Interstate 75, a prime north-south route for snowbird RVers.

More than 2,500 motorhome families and some 6,000 to 8,000 people are expected to attend.

All RV owners and members of the general public are invited to participate, according to a FMCA news release.

Various admission options are available for the Perry event. Activities include an RV show that highlights more than 100 display motorhomes, plus booths filled with RV components and accessories, as well as home products; motorhome-related seminars; organized tours of local sites and attractions; evening entertainment; and other social activities.

After the Perry event, it’s on to Redmond, Oregon, where the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center will host FMCA’s second Family Reunion of 2014, August 13-16. Click here to register.

The Madison, Wisconsin, Family Reunion will take place July 29 to August 1, 2015, at the Alliant Energy Center.

Deschutes-aerial-best“We had a fantastic event there in August 2011,” said FMCA President Charlie Adcock.

“We have been looking forward to returning ever since. The Alliant Energy Center is a terrific host facility, plus Madison and the surrounding area have so much for motorhome families to do and see.”

FMCA first hosted an event at the site back in 1984 when it was known as the Dane County Exposition Center. Various improvements made since then, including the addition of the 225,000-square-foot Exhibition Hall, have added to the appeal of the facility when it comes to accommodating an FMCA event.

The Madison gathering in 2011 drew a total of 2,143 motorhomes to the site. FMCA officials expect an even better turnout in 2015, given renewed interest in the motorhome lifestyle since the end of the recession.

Prior to the Madison confab, FMCA will make a return visit to Fairplex in Pomona, California, March 26 to 29, 2015, for the 91st Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase.

Worth Pondering…
