Jun 6th 2021
Riding as a lone ranger or with a small group of friends and family members is always an enjoyable experience. But if you’re wanting to expand your horizons, meet like-minded folks, and get more involved in the side-by-side community, there are many off-road UTV events that you and your loved ones can attend. And although many off-road events in 2020 were canceled, the 2021 lineup of UTV events that planners have organized is gearing up to be something special. So don’t miss out and bring your Polaris RZR, your Polaris RZR 4, or Polaris RS1 to an upcoming UTV event near you!
February 2021 UTV Events
Cajun Muddy Gras
Starting the year off with a bang is the Cajun Muddy Gras event held between February 11th and February 14th at the Muddy Bottoms ATV & Recreation Park in Serpenta Louisiana. This event was presented by Can-Am in 2020, which presented Polaris RZR owners with a great opportunity for some bipartisan riding. Although BRP still sponsors the Cajun Muddy Gras, so too does SuperATV, Valveworks, and other off-road brands that you know and love. Not to be confused with similar events like the Mardi Gras Muddfest at the Creekside Offroad RV Ranch in Splendora TX, the Cajun Muddy Gras in Sarepta LA will be chalked full of fun and excitement, with activities such as parades, music, contests, and of course, ample amounts of mud!
Mardi Gras Ride
Located near the Neches River in Jacksonville TX, the River Run ATV Park offers a dang good time no matter what season it is. But between February 18th and February 21st, the park springs to life during the annual Mardi Gras Ride. The admission to River Run’s 2021 Mardi Gras Ride is $55, but once inside, you’ll get more than your fair share of quality riding time with events like poker runs, bounty holes, treasure hunts, and a Mardi Gras parade!
The single-day K-Rocks Frostbite event that takes place annually -- and on Feb 27th in 2021 -- at the Kansas Rocks Recreation Park is the perfect way to start your riding season off on the right foot! As the name would suggest, it can get a bit chilly during this wintertime event, but with buckets of coffee, hot cider, warm food, and great company around every turn, you’re sure to stay nice and toasty at the Kanrocks Frostbite event -- even without a Polaris RZR Inferno cab heater!
March 2021 UTV Events
Kicking off March in style is the Mud Rodeo hosted at the Rock Creek Racing and Recreation Off-Road Park in Booneville AK between the 5th and 7th of March. This family-owned ORV park has nearly 900 acres of woods, mountains, creeks and pastures, and offers everything from rock gardens and mud holes to a dirt drag strip and a motocross track.
Muddy Bug Bash
Occurring the same weekend as the Mud Rodeo, the 4th annual Muddy Bug Bash in Leakesville Mississippi offers something that few other UTV events provide -- free crawfish! But if you want to experience a good time with concerts, sandbars on the river, rental cabins, and a seemingly endless amount of southern peanut butter mud, the Muddy Bug Bash held at Wild Country Off-Road Park is a can’t-miss experience!
The Shamrock Shakedown is held at WindRock Park in Oliver Springs Tennessee over the St. Patrick’s day weekend -- March 18-21. Presented by Titan OffRoad, the gates for this event open at 3pm on Thursday. But don’t worry about being first in line, because there are more than enough camping spots available! In addition to live music, quality company, and all the off-roading you can handle, a raffle is also conducted at the Shamrock Shakedown where you can win all sorts of prizes ranging from light accessories and bump stops to Rotopax fuel packs!
Rednecks With Paychecks Spring Break
The March 18-21 spring break event hosted at Rednecks With Paychecks Off-Road in Saint Jo Texas is where riders go to get down and dirty. The event has bounty holes, tug-of-war competitions, and mud crawls with cash prizes for the winners, so you might end up coming out of the weekend a bit richer than when you entered! For a hell-raising holiday this spring break, the Rednecks With Paychecks event is your golden ticket for amusement without bounds!
SuperATV Mudd Mayhem
After the Mardi Gras Ride, the next event to be held at River Run ATV Park is the SuperATV Mudd Mayhem on the 25th and 26th of March. On top of events like their “Crank It Up Contests” sponsored by Millar Light Bars, the “Baddest On The River” event sponsored by Rogue Off-Road, and championship mud racing to separate the wheat from the chaff, the 2021 SuperATV Mudd Mayhem gathering also has live music, treasure hunts, and poker runs!
If you can’t make it to Mudd Mayhem, don’t fret, because SuperATV also sponsors Mudapalooza, which takes place over the Memorial Day weekend at Muddy Bottoms ATV Park, Rally in the Pines in Salmon Idaho between July 15th-18th, and the Sand Sport Super Show in Scottsdale Arizona starting September 17th!
Riding For A Reason
Not all side-by-side events in 2021 are hedonistic parties fueled by off-roading and on-trail mischief. A perfect example of this is the Riding For A Reason event to raise awareness for colon cancer at the Bass River Resort in Steelville Missouri. The 6th Annual Riding For A Reason Spring Ride goes down on March 26th / 27th, with packages for adults, kids, and entire families. So be a philanthropist and rip it up at the same time by signing up for the Riding For A Reason 2021 Spring Ride!
Backyard Mud Fest at Tower Trax ATV
Containing 40 miles of groomed trails on a 2,600-acre tract of land, the Tower Trax ATV Recreation Park in Fulkner Louisiana is a mecca for off-roaders of all kinds. And besides the natural splendor, Tower Trax ATV Recreation Park is also home to bathhouses, concession stands, bike wash stations, RV hook-ups, oval and drag mud racing complexes, and 5 distinct mud obstacles! Come to the Tower Trax for the Mud Fest, then return again in June for the Bounty Hole Bash with a Friday-night foam party, a VIP pool party, concerts, and more!
Ride For Reid
Like the Riding for a Reason event, Ride for Reid is charity gathering organized for a good cause. It takes place March 26-28 at Adventure Off Road Park in South Pittsburg TN. You can make a charitable donation at the event, or simply show your support by attending. Either way, it feels good to do good, and it feels even better to do good behind the wheel of a Razor!
Kanrocks Night Run
After freezing your butt off at the Kanrocks Frostbite event, you can come back to Kansas Rocks Recreational Park on March 27th to experience the Kanrocks Night run -- just make sure to have your light bar and whip lights ready to rock! If you can’t make it on the 27th, Kanrocks Night Run events also take place on July 24th as well as August 21st.
April 2021 UTV Events
High Lifter Mud Nationals
In the early days April (April 7-11 to be exact) the self-proclaimed largest mud party in the world takes place at Hillarosa ATV Park in Blevins AR.

International Mud Rider Convention
After the goings on at Cajun Muddy Gras fades away, you can make your way back to the Muddy Bottoms ATV and Recreation Park in Sarepta LA for the 2021 International Mud Riders Convention on April 22-25. Head on over and enjoy the nice spring weather, and get yourself into trouble with more mud obstacles than you’ll know what to do with!

Busco Beach Mud Bash
Mud Bash week at Busco Beach & ATV Park in Goldsboro NC is your opportunity to show what you’ve got and potentially earn a bit of spending money in the process.

May 2021 UTV Events
Rally On The Rocks
