Quartzsite RV Show 2020

I've never been to the show before and I was reading that it's a mad house so when's a good time to attend?

What's the best time to attend the show?
Day of the week?
Time of the day?
Opening day?
Last day?
Middle of the week?

I'm an introvert so I don't enjoy crowds where people are constantly bumping into you or just chit chatting in the middle of walkways and bottlenecking the whole process.

We've been to Quartzsite about 10 times over the years. Can't say that any time or day was better than another.

Just go on your own schedule and have a good time. We usually spend three days at the show to see everything plus getting a Cinnamon bun every day.

I'd be curious to hear about your first experience at the show and if you enjoyed it. We always have a good time.

Okay, I'm camping at Yuma and was going to drive up for the day. I guess I'll go up early on Monday. I figure I may miss some people who work during the week. I've been trying to get my RV ready for boondocking and almost have it setup but not in time for January.

Any chance people will be leaving the area after the show?

Thank you

Across the street from the big tent is an area filled with vendors in popup tents.

Right along the street there will be a trailer that cooks them. They have a place to sit.

The owners are from Oakhurst California. We go to the local fair in Fresno just to buy their cinnamon buns.

I went thru the big tent today right after they opened. The crowd was light and traffic wasn't a problem getting there though leaving around noon was a little different. Traffic was bumper to bumper though the people traffic in the tent was okay.

I tried the cinnamon bun though walked by the ice cream. I thought about the ice cream. Grand Design was the only RVs I saw there. I don't know where the others were located.

Hope 2020 is a better "RV" show, 2018 was a lot of nothing to do RVing in the big tent

We've been to quartzsite three times and bought wood bear, rocks, geodes, and other stuff. Funny we never noticed an RV show. Must be being old an unobservant. We were looking for a dog park. Anyway, we'll be there Thursday and looking forward to cinnamon rolls
