For ATV enthusiasts in the Upper Midwest, there is just one place to go where you can see all of the new machines and aftermarket equipment in one place â€“ the All Terrain Vehicle Association of Minnesota (ATVAM) ATV Fair and Swap Meet. And it all starts Saturday morning.
This event has traditionally pulled in the big factory displays from all of the major manufacturers. Some brands create demo ride courses at the host Benton County Fairgrounds in suburban St. Cloud, letting you try before you buy.
The ATV Fair and Swap Meet is also the first stop for the annual Quadmasters tour, which allows participants to bring their four wheelers and test its capabilities and their driving skills in an obstacle course, a rock crawl, a mud pit and even climb over the top of a car. Thereâ€™s also an ATV pull.
The tour is also the second stop on ATV Magazine's Four Wheelin' Adventure Series, which unites the top ATV events in the country.
To boost attendance at this already popular event, ATVAM officials have trimmed the admission fee to $7, plus made their swap meet free for exhibitors.
