Citing COVID-19 regulations, Polaris decided to cancel Camp RZR this year. 

Camp RZR, of the most popular UTV gatherings, has been cancelled for 2020. For ten years, the event hosted fans, enthusiasts and professionals in one location. Since its inception, the camp has become more of a festival than a simple gathering. This is an event that Polaris fans talk about constantly.

Each year, the manufacturer hosts its event at the Glamis Imperial Sand Dunes in California around Halloween weekend.

Here’s their official statement:

“Due to current COVID regulations from the State of California. Polaris will be unable to host our annual Camp RZR festivities over Halloween weekend 2020. Over the past decade Camp RZR has become the ultimate celebration of the side-by-side community. (With) thousands of riders gather annually to share their passion for off-roading.

As much as our hearts are pulled toward Glamis – (we) will miss riding through the dunes and hanging out at Oldsmobile Hill with you. We look forward to celebrating our riding family in new and different ways this year. In the meantime we appreciate seeing our riders safely getting outside on their own.  Keep tagging us in your ride photos. We look forward to hosting Camp in Glamis next year when circumstances permit.”

The company posted its statement as well as a photo gallery from past events on its website.

Polaris may be working on a few things for the fans to take a little bit of the sting away. A few potential special events (possibly on-line) for new products and whatnot. With any luck, we will have the camp back for 2021 – and beyond. So, at least that’s something to look forward to.
