2020 Midwest
Vanlife Gathering

A nonprofit shindig
for the nomadic community

2020 Event Cancelled 🙁

Thurs, May 7th - Sun, May 10th
Camp Manitowa - Cedar Point, Makanda, Illinois

Per the CDC's recommendations, we've made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Midwest Vanlife Gathering.

Obviously we weren't wanting to do this, y'all. But it's our responsibility as a community to help prevent the spread of this pandemic.

Our hearts are broken as we were deeply looking forward to connecting with you all, but our country needs our cooperation right now and we're happy to help promote the health and well-being of not only our community as a whole, but also our country.

We will be sending out an email to all those who have already purchased tickets and swag, so keep an eye on your inbox.

Any proceeds we have left after issuing refunds will be donated to a nonprofit in the Midwest that is helping during this crucial time. We will announce the nonprofit we choose shortly.

We hope to see you at Camp Manitowa in May 2021. We apologize for this unfortunate cancellation, but we thank you for your support and understanding during this time.

Each May, nomads of all kinds gather in the serene woods of the Midwest to participate in something truly special.

The Midwest Vanlife Gathering is an inspiring weekend of community, camaraderie, educational workshops, outdoor activities, diversity and inclusion, community-driven live music, kick ass meals, and raising money for some awesome causes. Not to mention tons of van tours, meeting fellow nomads, and soaking up tips and tricks for life on the road!

All are welcome.

No matter who you are, no matter what type of traveler you are, or if you're not a traveler at all. Whether your rig is a van, truck, skoolie, or tent. Whether you're part-time, full-time, nomad-curious, weekender, or just want to hang out with an eclectic and accepting group of people.

Join us.
