About The Gathering

Peace Love & Vans is a fun-filled weekend in beautiful central Florida where vanlifers and van curious gather to meet, learn and be inspired by each other all while enjoying great food, music, games, and community. Along the way, we form a groovy van village with a 60’s inspired theme including an exhibitor row featuring dozens of industry-leading companies showcasing their products and adventure vans. There will also be daily raffles, workshops, trivia night, live music, and plenty of enjoyable surprises. Check out our schedule and FAQs page for complete details.
