HURRICANE — On Saturday, May 8, Van Fest USA will be having its first-ever event in Hurricane, Utah, at the Washington County Legacy Park. Van Fest is a custom nomadic vehicle festival dedicated to introducing the adventurous at heart to the Van Life. If you’re looking for the “Parade of Homes” for Van Life, this is the place.

You’ll be able to tour 100-plus fully-custom van & school bus conversions, eight workshops from industry professionals, numerous influencer meetups, a full live concert, food trucks, vendors, and more.

The headlining group for the event will be The National Parks Band. Since emerging in 2013, the Provo quartet — Brady Parks, Sydney Macfarlane, Cam Brannelly and Megan Parks — has quietly grown into an independent phenomenon with roots embedded in blissful pop, cinematic electronics, organic orchestration and rock energy. Racking up over 90 million total streams, selling out headline shows on the tour, and acclaimed by NPR, Paste, Atwood Magazine, PopMatters and more, the group bloomed like never before on their aptly titled independent fourth full-length, “Wildflower.”
