Rawhide Event Center
$5.00 parking for general public (cash only please)
Members of Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), an international
organization for people who own motorhomes, will pack up their modern-day
“stagecoaches” and make their way to the Rawhide Western Town and Event
Center at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, Arizona, March 7 through 10, 2017.
Located just south of Phoenix, Rawhide Western Town and Event Center will
serve as the venue for FMCA’s 95th International Convention, when the
association makes a long overdue return visit to the Grand Canyon State.
A key element of FMCA’s international conventions is an unparalleled motorhome
showcase. Top motorhome manufacturers and dealers will display their latest
models. With the variety of sizes and floor plans, attendees should be able to find a
motorhome to suit their needs. Some might be looking for a rolling residence for
full-time RV living; others may want a vehicle to serve as “party central” for
weekend tailgating during college football season; still others may be searching for
a vehicle suitable for taking their kids, pets, etc. on weekend getaways or weeklong
vacations. When it comes to outfitting the motorhome for travel, attendees will be
able to head to the indoor exhibition areas, which will house more than 300 booths
packed with a variety of RV-related products and services.
FMCA events also offer motorhome owners, as well as those exploring the idea of
ownership, opportunities for enhancing their knowledge via seminars conducted by
RV experts. Nearly 100 different topics are expected to be addressed during the
event in Arizona.
In addition, motorhome owners will be treated to first-rate evening entertainment
and a variety of special activities. Among them will be group tours of local sites
Although the convention is organized for Family Motor Coach Association
members, the organization also invites members of the public to attend and
provides various admission options. For those who want to view only the
motorhome exhibition, admission costs is $10 per day per person or $25 for a family of 3 or more; children 12 and under are admitted free with an accompanying adult, as are those with an active military ID. Individuals who want to also attend seminars an entertainment may purchase a Daily Passport, which is available for $50 per day per person or they may register for the entire event.
