Illinois Route 66 Mother Road Festival Vintage Camper Rally and Festival Display

September 22, 2022 @ 4:00 PM September 25, 2022 @ 12:00 PM EDT

Join us for the first Illinois Mother Road Vintage Camper Rally in Springfield, IL, as we celebrate the lure of the open highway at The International Route 66 Mother Road Festival. We’ll camp in a grassy area at the Illinois State Fair Campgrounds, just blocks from the Mother Road Festival and historic Lincoln attractions. Preference will be given to vintage campers (RVs, camping trailers, truck campers, etc.) from 1979 and earlier, but campers from the 1980s will be welcome if space allows. The fee is $80 for one vintage camper and one person. Add $5 for each additional person in the same camper. The fee includes 3 nights camping (water & electric) and rally activities.

In addition, for the first time ever, vintage campers are invited to display their rigs at the International Route 66 Mother Road Festival in downtown Springfield on Saturday, September 24. The fee for this event is $25, and registration is from 7 to 9 a.m. the morning of the event at the festival organizer’s tent located at 6th and Cook. Campers are asked to remain at the festival until at least 6 PM. No hook-ups are provided.

Enjoy one or both of these events! (You may display your vintage camper at the Mother Road Festival even if you are not participating in the Vintage Camper Rally.)
