A quick Google search shows it is happening the 19th to 27th of January.
The Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show :: Home

As we are leaving this weekend, it had been a thought to go, but then I really don't want anything, and it is likely to be quite the gong show.

I don't know what it will be like this year, but it seems that every year more "State Fair" type booths replace the RV type booths. I'm sure there will still be lots of useful stuff, but you are going to have to put up with cookware, cell phone cables, and mops as you work your way through the tent.

When I talked with the Honda generator folks at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta last October, the manager of the group said he was not going to do Quartzsite this year.

In any case, I'm parked at La Posa West a couple hundred feet from the Big Tent, so I'm sure I'll make a couple of visits over the week long event. Until the government shutdown ends, the Long Term Visitor Areas are free since the offices are closed & there is no way to pay. If you are coming to Quartzsite early, stop by!

You are absolutely welcome. Even myself and the Quartzsite kids went to the dark side for two years and we were still welcomed at the Quartzsite gathering. We've have folks in tents, truck campers as well as SOB's.
Hope to see you there.

Don't be fooled, that pie of his is terrible. I will do the honourable thing and dispose of it myself. You're welcome.

We've always gotten water at the RV Pit Stop at 425 N Central there in Quartzsite. It's $0.25 for 5 gallons of filtered water.

Just North of town on highway 95 is the County Landfill Transfer Station. At the time we will be there, they are open Sun thru Wed 0730 to 1430.

Are you sure it is not $0.25 per gallon? I was paying $1 for 5 gallons. Most places I saw throughout Arizona were about that. Regardless, what I paid seemed reasonable for good filtered water. I was buying at what I believe was a Mobil service station by the west overpass closer to Dome Rock.

Good to know about the Waste Transfer Station. By the time my second year is done there, I will just about know the whole area.

Are there any "open" sewer dump stations in close proximity?

Until the government shutdown ends, the dump station at La Posa south is "free", although they could close it anytime. Normally, you have to have a permit to dump, get fresh water or use the dumpsters ($40.00/2 weeks or $180.00/7 months). None of the offices are open, so you can't buy a permit, and no one is checking for them at the stations.

Thanks Jon, you are a wealth of good information. Additionally, I must say I really enjoy reading your blogs as you travel as well as your past adventures. Very informative.

You certainly are welcome Walt. When are you coming down? You may be a bit underwhelmed though. I liken it to a sports car. It sure is pretty and it pulls really well but I'd rank it pretty low for usability. Almost no black water capacity, the hot water is 110v, the fridge is tiny (still havent put in the new 12v compressor fridge). The bed is awkward, and the bathroom has no door lol.
