Quartzsite and Nearby Events

Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show – Jan 20th thru 28th, 2018

We will post the schedule of events starting in August as soon as they become available.

For you snowbirds in Yuma, AZ  and anyone considering a day trip, you can find a great calendar of local events here. Sorry, but Yuma is a little far for the bulk of my readers to go for an event though some do go down there to see the wonderful sites.
