It All Began Back In 1962!
The very first Springfield RV Camping & Outdoor Show began back in 1962 and the show was put on entirely by volunteers from The Pioneer Valley Chapter 8 (PV8) of the North American Family Campers Association (NAFCA)! PV8 was a group of friendly family campers that had one thing in common... CAMPING! The show was first held in a single building and remained that way for several years but the show quickly began to grow and grow never looking back into the massive show that you see today!
Going back all those years no one imagined that the show would eventually take up acres and acres over three massive building at the Big-E Fair Grounds which is Home of the "BIG-E" every fall!
This year we are celebrating the 55th anniversary of this show, not too shabby for a bunch of volunteers!
