The Best 2021 UTV Events For Can-Am Owners
Jun 7th 2021
Riding a UTV by yourself or with a couple close friends is rarely going to be boring. But if you’re wanting to get out there, expand your horizons, and get more involved in Powersports community, there are many off-road UTV events in 2021 that you can attend. And although most of the off-road events in 2020 were canceled, the 2021 UTV events that are in the pipeline are set to be nothing shy of spectacularl. So don’t miss out and bring your Can-Am Maverick, Can-Am Commander, or Can-Am Defender to an upcoming UTV event near you!
February 2021 UTV Events
Cajun Muddy Gras
Starting the year off on a good note is always advised. And this is great, because the Cajun Muddy Gras event held between February 11th and February 14th at the Muddy Bottoms ATV & Recreation Park in Serpenta Louisiana is one of the top gatherings of UTV enthusiasts out there. The event was presented by Can-Am in 2020, which presented Can-Am owners with a great opportunity to both see other Can-Am editions as well as chat with fellow Can-Am side-by-side owners. Can-Am is again sponsoring the Cajun Muddy Gras in 2021, and so too is SuperATV, Valveworks, and number of other off-road brands that you know and trust. Not to be mistaken 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, and include activities like parades, music, and of course, olympic-size swimming pool loads of mud!
Mardi Gras Ride
Located near Neches River in Jacksonville TX, the River Run ATV Park offers a helluva good time no matter what day off the week it is. But between February 18th and February 21st, the park really comes alive during the annual Mardi Gras Ride. The entrance fee for River Run’s 2021 Mardi Gras Ride is $55, but once inside the park, you’ll have unrestricted access to trails, features, and unbeatable good times with events like poker runs, bounty holes, treasure hunts, and a Mardi Gras parade!
The one-day-only K-Rocks Frostbite event that takes place annually -- and on February 27th in 2021 -- at the Kansas Rocks Recreation Park is an excellent way to start your riding season off with a bang! As evident by the name of the event, it can get a bit chilly during Kanrocks Frostbite, but with thermoses full coffee, free apple cider, hot food, and warm company around every turn, you’re sure to stay comfortable at Kanrocks Frostbite even without accessories like cab enclosures and Can-Am heaters!
March 2021 UTV Events
Kicking off the month of March like a Bruce Lee in his prime is the Mud Rodeo hosted at the Rock Creek Racing and Recreation Off-Road Park in Booneville Arkansas. This family-owned ORV park includes nearly 365 hectares of woods, mountains, creeks and pasturelands, with elements ranging from rock gardens and mud pits to a drag strip and a motocross track. This opportunity only crops up between March 5th and March 7th, so don't miss your chance to throw down and show up to the 2021 Mud Rodeo this year!
Muddy Bug Bash
Transpiring the same weekend as the Mud Rodeo, the 4th annual Muddy Bug Bash in Leakesville Mississippi offers something that other UTV events seldom provide -- free crawfish! But if you want to attend a UTV jubilee with concerts, sandbars on the river, rental cabins, and mile after mile of sloppy southern mud, the Muddy Bug Bash held at the Wild Country Off-Road park is an event that must be attended -- just make sure you've packed your mud tires!
The Shamrock Shakedown is held at WindRock Park in Oliver Springs Tennessee during St. Paddy's day -- March 18-21. Presented by Titan OffRoad, the gates for the 4th Annual Shamrock Shakedown open at 3pm on Thursday, so don't be late. If you're not the most punctual person out there, don’t worry, because there are plenty of camping spots available! In addition to live music, quality conversations, and an all-you-can-eat buffet of off-road delicacies, a raffle is also conducted at the Shamrock Shakedown where you can win anything from medical kits and bump stops to Rotopax fuel packs!
Rednecks With Paychecks Spring Break
The March 18th-21st spring break event hosted at Rednecks With Paychecks Off-Road in Saint Jo TX is where redneck riders can go to get down and dirty. With bounty holes, tug-of-war competitions, and mud crawls that offer cash prizes, you might even end up coming out of the event a bit more loaded than you where when you came in! For a hootin-n-hollerin holiday this spring, the Rednecks With Paychecks event is your surefire way to partake in off-road pandemonium!
SuperATV Mudd Mayhem
After the Mardi Gras Ride, the next event held at River Run ATV Park is going to be SuperATV's Mudd Mayhem on the 25th and 26th of March. On top of activities like their “Crank It Up Contest” sponsored by Millar Light Bars, “Baddest On The River” sponsored by Rogue Off-Road, and a championship mud racing circuit to separate the wheat from the chaff, the 2021 Mudd Mayhem is also going to have live music, treasure hunts, and poker runs!
If you can’t make it to Mudd Mayhem this March, don’t fret, because SuperATV also sponsors an event called Mudapalooza that 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 every UTV event for Can-Am owners in 2021 is all about partying and getting down. Case in point, 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 takes place on March 26th and 27th, with packages for adults, kids, and entire families. Be a philanthropist and put the pedal to the metal at the same time by joining the Riding For A Reason 2021 Spring Ride!
Backyard Mud Fest at Tower Trax ATV
Comprised of a trail network that spans over 40 miles on 2,600 acres of the roughest country around, the Tower Trax ATV Recreation Park in Fulkner Louisiana is a mecca for off-roaders of all kinds. Aside from the raw natural splendor, Tower Trax ATV Recreation Park is also home to bathhouses, concession stands, bike wash stations, RV hook-ups, oval tracks and mud drag complexes, and 5 different mud hazards! Come to the Tower Trax for the Mud Fest, then return again in June for the Bounty Hole Bash that boasts a Friday-night foam party, a VIP pool party, concerts, and more!

June 2021 UTV Events
With mud, music, and mayhem, the Redneck Rave at Blue Holler Offroad Park is marketed as the wildest and craziest UTV party of the summer.
