Overland Expo is one of the world’s largest events for Adventure Travel enthusiasts. This international event’s mission is to educate and inspire people to get out and explore the world by bike and vehicle. Included in this event are classes for Adventure Motorcycling, the Adventure Travel Film Festival, demonstrations, food, music, and a large expo with over 375 vendors of adventure equipment and services.

During the weekend over 14,000 people from around the globe will arrive at the Fort Tuthill County Park, whose grounds include a historic Army fort. Get ready to be blown away by the spacious overland skills area, with motorcycle riding and hands-on instruction. The event provides these activities in a dynamic format that will allow you to custom-tailor specific overland skills training.

The re-designed Motorcycle Expedition Skills Area and new layout of Motorcycle Village were such a hit at Overland Expo EAST, that they are bringing those concepts to the WEST event.
