Vendor Letter

The Desert Roads And Trails Society would like to invite you to join us as a sponsor for the 4th annual Winter 4x4 Jamboree which will be held January 18-20, 2018.  This event is organized by Desert Roads And Trails Society (Desert R.A.T.S.), an all volunteer, non-profit 501 C 3 organization dedicated preserving our public lands fuor multiple use and access.

Our 2017 Winter 4x4 Jamboree, held in January, was our largest so far. Over 500 registered vehicles and well over 1,000 participants enjoyed the event. As a result of our success, we were able to donate over $27,000 to land use groups, including Utah Public Lands Alliance, Utah 4 Wheel Drive Association, and Blue Ribbon Coalition. Winter 4x4 Jamboree is a non-profit, non­competitive guided trail run event. We run over 30 trails in the Saint George, Utah area. Most of those trails are within the Sand Mountain recreation area, just 5 miles from the Washington County Fairgrounds, where the vendor shows, staging, and free camping are located.  

For the 2018 Event, we will be adding more value to our sponsors. Our vendor show will be in the brand new building on the Jamboree site resulting in almost more than double the indoor space for our Vendor Booths.  We will build on our successful  "4x4 Rodeo" from last year and will now offer that as a vendor sponsored event.. On Friday, we will have a “Vendor Fiesta”, where each attendee (18 years and older) will have a card that will have all our vendor’s logos on it. Once they have visited every booth and received a sticker, they can enter the card in a drawing for valuable prizes. For our 2018 event, sponsor packages will include a defined number of complimentary registrations based on the level of sponsorship.  Our Platinum level sponsors will have 3 Trail Sponsorships included in their package.  

UPDATE:  As of December 13th, we have over 58% of our 1,650 trail openings filled!  We expect to have the event filled well before the close of online registration (Jan 9th)

We've added a third Platinum Sponsor this year in recognition of this event's growing popularity, as we pull participants from across the US.

We hope that you will join our team to help make the 2018 Winter 4x4 Jamboree an even better. Please make out checks to “Desert Roads And Trails Society” and mail to Desert Roads And Trails Society, 952 Westridge Drive, St. George, UT, 84770
