RV show puts call out for volunteers

RV show needs volunteers to fill various duties for three-day event.

The BC Interior RV Show is putting the call out for volunteers.

The sixth annual show being held April 21 to 23 will be held at the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre and the South Okanagan Events Centre. The annual BC Interior RV Show will fill 80,000 square feet of indoor space and the SOEC parking lot with over 40 different exhibitors promoting products and services related to the RV lifestyle, including the best and newest RV models in the industry.

The BC Interior RV Society has invited exhibitors who sell and promote products, services and properties related to the industry, including of course RV’s. Plus suppliers to the RV lifestyle such as satellite dishes, solar panels, outdoor

activities, tourism associations, resorts, RV camping sites will be on-site as well.

The three-day event will host workshops and educational sessions in the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre, and volunteers will have access to visit the show and participate in the free sessions.

The non-profit BC Interior RV society could not host a show of this size without the amazing support of its volunteers. Do

you love RV’s? The RV lifestyle? Or are looking for a fun social event to be part of? Or just the idea of exploring the open

road traveling in a luxurious, modern RV? – then volunteer for this event.

The show needs hosts to sell and attach wristbands at the two main entrances, plus to assist in directing guests between

the PTCC and the SOEC. The shifts are four hours long and you will receive a $5 concession coupon per shift and a weekend wristband to enjoy the event. Some shifts have already filled up so get your registration in as soon as you can.

Pick up a volunteer form in person at Midtown RV – Penticton – 310 Industrial Avenue West – Penticton – no later than April 14 or register on-line at

Weekend wristbands will be sold on-site – cash only for $5: April 21 – 23. Please bring a non-perishable food item

for The Salvation Army Community Food Bank. Net proceeds from the sale of the wristbands will also be donated to The

Salvation Army Community Food Bank. Children under 15 are free with a paying adult.

Please leave your pets (except eye-seeing dogs) and your RV’s at home. Parking is free but will be limited due to the size

of this event and the other events taking place during the same time.

The show is noon to 9 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday; Sunday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
