Shows, Events and Festivals

Add Event


Welcome to Campsite Finder Online Shows, Events and Festivals page. We have one of the most comprehensive pages of shows, events and festivals.

So whilst holidaying in any given area why not see if there is a Show, Festival or Event that is worth a visit.

Some shows like the VW Shows, Caravan and Camping Shows may offer camping on site which can be useful. Please check though, if disabled, that there are facilities to accommodate your needs.

A handful of shows are held on campsites but the majority are at show grounds so although toilets are catered for not always are there washing facilities available. For a weekend this is bearable but for any longer this could prove tiresome.

If this is the case we have an endless supply of parks to choose from - try using the radius search to narrow down your closest caravan park or campsite to your Show, Festival or Event.


The music festivals like the V Festival and the Big Chill are great to visit for the younger generation but can also be fun if older please remember though that limited amenities are normally available at the music festivals and it can be rather cramped.

There are the jazz festivals like Jazz in the Park held in Bude that offer a great way of relaxing over a weekend. Many street festivals happen throughout the summer. Agreat one in Herefordshire is the  Bromyard Gala held in July and in Newent the Newent Onion Fair held in September both are worth a visit.


There are some great shows to visit the VW Campervan shows like The Mighty Dubfest, Bus Type held at Oswestry at the beginning of the year and many more to choose from. They really are so much fun and being VW enthusiast ourselves we know these events are friendly and welcoming not just to VW owners but everyone alike.


An event is normally something happening in the area like Steam Extravaganza, Cotswold, Gloucestershire or on a particular campsite for the weekend
