Dozens of beer vendors prepare each year for this event, as thousands of beer lovers make the rounds, tasting sample after sample at Raley Field. Typically, the Raley Field Brewfest is home to great live music and craft and brewery beers — and an intoxicatingly good time.
Over every Memorial Day weekend, the Sacramento County Fair draws tens of thousands of visitors. From the annual FFA and 4-H competitions to stage shows to demolition derbies, the fair encompasses all that Sacramento is known for: fun! In addition to the Sacramento County Fair, there are a number of other California fairgrounds to look into, including fairs at Yuba City, Colusa, and Placerville.
The Cal Expo in Sacramento is home to several major events throughout the year, including the California State Fair. To check out what exciting events are happening at the Cal Expo on your next trip, visit their website.

Camping in California
If you’re renting an RV, you’ve no doubt thought about looking at campgrounds in California that can accommodate a large motorhome. The list below gives you some options, and we also happen to deliver RVs to these locations.
North Pines Campground at Yosemite National Park is a gorgeous place, full of beautiful waterfalls, mountain ranges, and sweeping landscapes. Staying here will make you feel like you’re on a different planet.
Zephyr Cove Resort is the perfect place to observe fireworks on Independence Day, and an added bonus comes from the natural shade of the pine trees above. If you’ve ever been caught on a campsite without shade, you know how torturous it can be.
Regional Events & Destinations
Every fall the Black Rock Desert in Nevada transforms into a city dedicated to community, art, and self-expression. Burning Man is one of the most well-known events happening in the United States. A unique culture is created as people come together to build a community for Burning Man. Click here to learn more about our rental offerings.
Many customers of Advantage Caravans choose to rent an RV and travel to the Lake Tahoe area. Lake Tahoe offers nearly limitless options for hiking, swimming, boating, biking, skiing, and more. Check out things to do in Lake Tahoe, and then request your RV reservation from our fleet of motorhomes and travel trailers.
Other Things to do in California
California has endless places to see and things to do, so don’t limit the trip to the Sacramento area. For instance, bring the family to Disneyland and enjoy Mickey’s laugh and Daffy’s shenanigans. The kids will love it, and you’ll know because of their ear-to-ear smiles. For something a bit less family friendly, take an afternoon to tour Napa Valley and sip some wine, experience the great weather, and set your sights on miles upon miles of beautiful vineyards and mountainous ranges.
Our modern RV rentals will allow you to really take in the amazing California festivals, events, and sights while having the comforts of home at your fingertips. Not only does renting an RV offer you convenience, but it also saves you money and lets you avoid the crowds at your favorite California events.
