Overland Expo is Returning to Arrington, Virginia This October!

Overland Expo is returning to Arrington, Virginia for its annual Overland Expo East event October 7-9, 2022 at Oakridge Estates. If you’re not familiar with Overland Expo, it’s an event series for doers, travelers, explorers, friends, families, dreamers, vagabonds and everyone in between.

Overland Expo is a place to connect with world travelers, adventure motorcyclists, and both novice and expert overlanders. More than a place to buy gear and get outfitted for your next great adventure, it’s a place to commune with people and learn new skills. Overland Expo attendees know that the real adventure doesn’t start until the rubber hits the trail.

Every Overland Expo event hosts hundreds of session-hours of hands-on educational classes, roundtable discussions, DIY presentations, and more. From learning how to navigate by map, to eating healthy on the trail or winching a truck sideways up a hill, there’s so much to learn at Overland Expo East.

Our hands-on education takes on a new meaning at Overland Expo East. That’s because fans can get behind the wheel to test out the rugged Nexen Tires on a custom-built test course and go for a ride in a handful of trail-capable Honda vehicles. Have you ever wanted to learn how to ride a motorcycle? The Motorcycle Industry Council is ready to lend attendees some riding gear and teach them the basics of moto riding — all in under an hour.

As the sun sets, join your friends for Happy Hour in our Oasis Bar and Food Court each evening. Join us Friday night for our Overland Expo Foundation raffle for a chance to win awesome prizes and then end the night at one of our in-booth parties. Find a seat by the fire to get the inside scoop from a Toyota Product Planner, roast s’mores, and taste whiskey. On Saturday, come on over to Honda’s booth for food, drinks, and music.

If you are an adventure motorcyclist, get tickets for our Saturday night Moto Party, sponsored by Rider Justice. Join us for a night of food, raffle prizes, and live music.

On Friday and Saturday night, get inspired by original films from your friends in the overlanding community. Get comfy, grab some popcorn and find yourself getting lost in inspirational travel stories at our Overland Film Festival. 

Although overlanding is about the journey and not the destination, that doesn’t mean that overlanding has to be lonely; Overland Expo all is about the community. Tens of thousands of attendees congregate to learn, share, explore, and laugh together.

Attendees can camp onsite and spend the weekend with us or they can pick up day passes and spend a few hours on the grounds. Whatever level of interest, knowledge, skill, or budget, there’s something for everyone at Overland Expo East. Plan your adventure HERE!
