For more than 50 years, Winnebago has welcomed its owner community to Forest City, Iowa, for Grand National Rally – a week-long celebration of Winnebago RVs and customers. This year’s rally will host nearly 800 RVs and more than 2,000 guests, the company said, and the theme is “Road Trip to Hawaii.”
The 2021 rally will take place the week of July 25 at Winnebago’s Forest City Rally Grounds.
Last year’s event was cancelled due to the pandemic, making this year’s rally extra special.
Throughout the event, guests can meet Winnebago employees, participate in educational seminars, take tours of manufacturing facilities, receive RV service and enjoy evening entertainment.
“We are thrilled to welcome back Winnebago enthusiasts to the Grand National Rally,” said Winnebago Outdoors President Huw Bower. “This event brings together people who share a love of their RVs and the outdoors, and provides a unique opportunity for community, for learning and for fun. We plan to whole-heartedly celebrate the people who inspire Winnebago’s commitment to quality, innovation and service, and drive us to be the best in the industry.”
Key highlights for this year include:
- Four days of product and vendor displays, seminars, video factory tours, Winnebago team interaction and more.
- Musical entertainment by country music artist Larry Fleet and folk-rock musician Chris Koza, who will perform his version of “On the Road Again” to promote Winnebago’s partnership with the National Park Foundation and the #SupportYourParks campaign.
- An authentic Hawaiian luau featuring a traditional pig roast, fire dancers, drummers and musicians, as well as Elvis and Don Ho tributes.
- Abundant meal options from regional food trucks serving BBQ, burger and breakfast favorites, as well as a pop-up tiki bar.
Attendees can support Winnebago’s community service efforts by participating in an on-site blood drive or signing up for RV Care-a-Vanner Build Day, which benefits Habitat for Humanity, as well as competing in a river and road clean-up contest after the event.
