Fiesta Time in Arizona Rally
March 9-13, 2022

Vintage Airstream Club Members:
Ken Johansen, President of the Region 11 Airstream Club (ACI), is inviting Vintage Airstream Club (VAC) members from across the USA and Canada to its Fiesta Time in Arizona Rally. The dates are March 9th to March 13th, 2022. The rally will be held at the Pinal County Fairgrounds and Event Center near Casa Grande, AZ.

This Fiesta will include a mariachi band, a rock and roll band, and a classically trained musician who is also a storyteller for evening entertainment. Breakfast will available each morning. Dinner menus are still being developed, but tacos will be available while the mariachi band is performing. Daytime activities will include presentations on tire and battery choices, a demonstration on backing safely and changing a tire correctly, propane and hitch safety, and a field trip to Airstream of Chandler, now the largest Airstream dealer in the world. Have you read a book about the Casa Grande area? Bring it to the rally book discussion session. Do you want to host a caravan? You can find out how by going to that breakout session.

Luke Bernander and Rodney Sly will be making presentations that relate to trailer safety. Luke will also bring his dents-out equipment for those who want their dents to disappear.

This rally will provide opportunities for entertainment and education while enjoying special food, and most important, a place to meet new friends and visit with longtime friends.

While here in central Arizona, consider visiting one our nearby Sky Islands, Mount Lemon. Sky Islands are a unique geological structure that are found in very few places in the world. Climb up a lava flow, Picacho Peak, also a unique geologic structure. Stop at the Benson Visitor Center just off I-10 east of Tucson and ask for information on things to see and do in Cochise County, a county larger than Rhode Island and Connecticut combined.

Visiting Arizona in March 2022 is a wonderful opportunity to go to a well-planned Airstream rally that is not only welcoming vintage Airstreams but featuring vintage with special parking. It is also the first annual Southwest Vintage Airstream Rally, and it is a wonderful time of year to enjoy Arizona.

Lisa Sly, Vintage Airstream Club president, will be present. She is always interested in learning about how each member feels about VAC and hearing suggestions for improvement.

To register for the rally, go to the Region 11 website (link below). The maximum trailer capacity for this event is 125. Be in one those trailers!
