The only handmade campervan festival

Whether you’re a full timer or a self-builder (or both) or even if you just love campervans, this is the festival for you. Camp Quirky is an opportunity to meet new friends who share your passion for all things campervanning. There are workshops aplenty, music to fill your ears and beautiful craft stalls for you to peruse. And of course lots, and lots, of campervans.

 

Where did the idea for a handmade campervan festival come from?

We didn’t originally intend for Camp Quirky to be a handmade campervan festival. It started out as simply an opportunity for Quirky Campers vans and owners to come together. To swap stories, share tips and learn from each other. However, it has quickly outgrown this modest aim…

When the limited number of tickets available to the public for this year’s event sold out in a week(!) we realised this event is much bigger than us… There was such a hunger from a range of self-builders, professional converters and vanlife bloggers for an event aimed at people like them. Many people had tried out the VW festivals or the motorhome shows, but just didn’t get what they were looking for. Camp Quirky provided them with real self-built inspiration. A range of sizes and types of van, every layout you could imagine, technical tips and style ideas.We want to be able to welcome lots more of you, for the whole weekend, and in your own campervans if you have them.

What can I expect from Camp Quirky
