UTV Action Mag attended the Camp Bouse UTV Fest, and it was a lot of fun with a Friday night ride, a high-speed 75-mile ride to Tank Pass and Bill Williams River, and a low-speed mountain and sand wash ride to Brenda and back. There were also Poker Run stops on the rides, a corn hole tournament, BBQ dinner, and product raffle. The two guided rides on Saturday and Sunday showed off the local trails and awesome scenery with red-rock canyons, volcanic mountains, historic stops at mines, and great vistas.
The Saguaro UTV Fest is February 19-21 in Wendon, and it will feature a guided Dark Vader night ride, 50-mile Palmerita Loop, and a 50-mile Harquahala Loop. Wendon also has beautiful Alamo Lake, one of Arizona’s best bass lakes. Online registration prices are $150 for driver and $120 for passengers, including guided rides, event T-shirt, swag bag, two breakfasts, one dinner and one raffle ticket. Children under 12 are free. After February 14th, prices go to $170.
The Peppersauce Fun Run is March 26-28 in San Manual. Globe will host the Gila Monster Fest April 16-18, and Showlow hosts the Brewski UTV Fest June 11-13. There are eight 2021 events, plus the White Mountain UTV Jamboree (August 18-23), in all with guided daily and night rides, vendor rows, raffles, and other activities.
