Tierra Del Sol Four Wheel Drive Club of San Diego is presenting its

55th Annual Desert Safari

March 3 – 5, 2017

TDS Desert Safari has become one of the premier off-road events in the country and the largest four wheel drive event on the west coast. In past years we have had over 1500 vehicles registered with approximately 20,000 in attendance.

This is a GREAT OPPORTUNITY as a vendor to meet your customers and get your products or services out to the 4 wheeling community.

This year for the first time UTV vendors will be showcased at Safari.  We will have a UTV Vendor Section for this new opportunity.

Headquarters and vendor area will be held at The Ocotillo Wells OHRV 4×4 Training Center off of S22

23 miles east of Christmas Circle in Borrego Springs on S-22 or 3.0 miles west of state highway 86.
