St. Anthony, Idaho - Spend the 2018 Labor Day holiday riding North America’s biggest and tallest sand dunes near St. Anthony, ID, at the 2018 UTV Invasion Powered by Evolution Powersports.
Now in its fifth year, the UTV Invasion has grown to be one of the premier UTV events in the country and it continues to get bigger.
Idaho Dunes RV will play host to the event but you don’t have to stay there to attend. All activities are open for anyone to participate and there’s plenty to keep you busy both on and off the sand.
“We picked St. Anthony because it’s one of the most unique duning locations in the country,” Dave Kuskie, promoter of the event, said. “The sheer size of the dunes is like nothing else in North America and while the distance is a hangup for some, we’re seeing more and more people attend from all corners of the country.”
Last year’s event saw attendees from all over the West Coast, Midwest and as far away as Florida make the trip to St. Anthony. Many regulars have been coming since the first or second year and make the event a part of their annual plans.
Back again are a host of regular events including the Wolf Designs Show ’n Shine, the UTV Teeter Totter and the Can-Am demo tour as well as celebrity guided group rides where attendees can meet big names from around the industry. Last year’s event included NASCAR’s Gregg Biffle and motocross/supercross champion Damon Bradshaw.
“We’re really aiming to put on a top notch event that pulls people together from all corners of the industry with an emphasis on getting out and exploring the area,” Kuskie said. “The dunes are the biggest draw and that’s what keeps bringing people back year after year. People are genuinely in disbelief the first time they lay eyes on Choke Cherry Hill and Devil’s Dune and the added bonus of enjoying it with thousands of other enthusiasts makes us all feel like one big family.”
The event kicks off Thursday, Aug. 30 and will run through Sunday Sept. 2. Vendor space is limited and sells out every year so companies are encouraged to contact UTV Invasion staff and reserve space ASAP.
