The Perfect Place for Special Events

River Vista RV Village is the perfect place for special events... both large and small. Over the years we have hosted live entertainment, dances, pot lucks, charity walks, fishing tournaments, house decorating contests, and of course, our annual Holiday Golf Cart Parade. For a list of all the special events and activities at River Vista, check out our Activities Calendar on the Guest Hub.

The fun doesn't stop here at the resort - the entire Ruskin area is bustling with fun events. Between all the activities and special events at the resort, the hard to resist Little Manatee River, and all there is to do in the surrounding area, you'll wonder how to pack it all in this year. After all, you do need some downtime to relax and just enjoy the sunshine. The good news is, you can come back year after year, it'll all be waiting for you.

 Here’s a list of some of the public events going on in and around the area this year. Please call before attending any community events. You can find CDC coronavirus information at; AARP has additional resources at
