The UTV Jamboree season starts in earnest this March with the High Lifter Mud Nationals, which moves back to go-big-or-go-home Texas for 2023, relocating to the Sabine ATV Park in Burkeville on March 15th-19th. Jacksonville, the original site of the HLMNs, hosts the SuperATV Mud Mayhem on March 23rd-26th at River Run Park. Mudders will also return to River Run Park on May 4th-7th for Mudd Jam 14 and Muddin for a Cure on October 12th-15th.

Mud enthusiasts have two months to get their rides ready for the High Lifter Mud Nationals, which returns to Texas March 15th-19th at Sabine ATV Park.



Windrock Park opens its 73,000 acres for its Shamrock Shakedown on March 15th-19th and its Spring Shindig April 20th-22nd at Oliver Springs, Tennessee, and the Fall Jam is October 19th-21st with guided rides and big-name bands in concert. These are some of the east coast’s largest jamborees, along with Brimstone Recreation’s White Knuckle Event over Memorial Day weekend in Huntsville, TN.

Tennessee is the place to be in March and April for Windrock Park’s Shamrock Shakedown and Spring Shindig.


Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, Utah, will host the second-annual SxS Adventure Rally on the Rocks on May 11th-13th with guided rides, manufacturer and aftermarket demo rides, vendor specials, hot breakfasts, a BBQ dinner, grand raffle, and concert on the beach. MidAmerica Outdoors in Jay, Oklahoma, hosts its Visions Off-road festival earlier this year on June 14th-18th with Ultra4 rock bouncers, MAO short-course, endurance racing, freestyle and monster-truck shows, sand drags, pro rodeo, R/C car racing, multiple concerts, Barbie Jeep races and much more.

Manufacturers demo their sport and recreation UTVs at major UTV jamborees and races, so check the schedule for jams and races near you.


Duners beat the summer heat with Dunefest, which is located in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area with headquarters in Winchester Bay. The 2023 Dunefest will be August 8th-12th with guided day and night rides, UTV sand drags and short-course racing, a huge vendor row with special deals, concerts, and many other family-fun activities. Although it hasn’t released  2023 dates yet, other than June 21st-24th at Coos Bay, Oregon,  the UTV Takeover holds multiple rallies in Oregon, Utah, Oklahoma, and Virginia with UTV rides, races, huck-fests, sand drags, demo rides, ATC races, concerts, show-n-shines and much more.

Utah’s Paiute Trail also hosts UTV jams in June (Fillmore’s National UTV Jam) and August (Marysvale and Bryce), but they haven’t released 2023 dates at press time. Arizona’s UTV Off-road Adventures holds the White Mountain Jam in Eager/Springerville over labor Day weekend, and they hold three UTV Fests over the summer in northern Arizona’s high country.

January is prime dune season with Americans AJ Jones and Seth Quintero going 1-2 in the Dakar Rally. UTV Takeover and the UTV Invasion will put on six big dune jams in 2023.


Labor Day weekend is also when St. Anthony, Idaho, hosts the hugely popular UTV Invasion, but the UTV Invasion expands to three rounds for 2023 in three states! On May 18th-20th, Utah’s Little Sahara Dunes get the first UTV Invasion, and on September 21st-23rd, Oklahoma’s Little Sahara completes the UTV Invasion 2023 triple crown.


July 6th-9th is also a big week in Idaho with Salmon hosting the Rally in the Pines. Be sure to bring binoculars to all these high-altitude events to view bighorn sheep and other wildlife, along with rain suits for afternoon monsoons. Check out the 2023 UTV Jamboree listings for contact info, and be sure to get out and have fun!


Yamaha Outdoors held a VIP Yamaha ride at the 2022 SxS Adventure Rally on the Rocks, and Maxxis and Kawasaki will hold a KOH ride with Jeremy McGrath on February 3rd.
