Just Kampers Open Day and Camping Weekender 2019

Just Kampers Open Day and Camping Weekender

Just Kampers’ Open Day is no doubt one of the most well-known VW events and festivals in the South of England. Based in the rolling hills of Hampshire, it’s a laid-back charity fundraising event that began over 10 years ago as a commercial open day for the dealership. It’s since evolved into a small festival which adheres to the feel of classic VW shows. Only 10 minutes from Basingstoke, this event is ideal as a relaxing weekend break and an excellent chance to meet like-minded individuals.

Weekend camping tickets are limited, but there are day tickets available for Saturday 8th June to visitors to enjoy the main event. There is a range of carefully selected trader stalls, from award-winning local food to family-friendly attractions such as pottery painting, face painting and even cookery demos by ChefCamper.com.

Camping ticket holders can enjoy the camping from Friday evening, as well as an outdoor cinema screening, use of toilet and shower blocks and disco evenings. You don’t have to own a VW or even a campervan to join- everyone who loves the great outdoors is welcome to attend.
