If you’re already part of the Jeep community, you know how intensely owners love these iconic vehicles. It’s because of this enthusiasm that there are not one, but multiple Jeep events and festivals that take place throughout the year. If you’d like to take part in the festivities and see what all the fuss is about, check out some of these great Jeep events to put on your calendar.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, these events could fall victim to cancellation this year. To avoid showing up to an empty venue, make sure you stay up to date on the event information through the event websites.
Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival
This three-day festival takes place at Cooper’s Lake Campground in Butler, Pennsylvania. This festival honors Bantam, one of several manufacturers involved in creating the earliest Jeeps for the U.S. Army during World War II. The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival has something for everyone, including on- and off-road driving trails, a playground for kids, and a Jeep history exhibit for those interested in learning more about the vehicle’s fascinating history.
What sets the Jeep Jamboree apart from other events is that it takes place year-round. Multiple Jeep Jamborees happen across the U.S. throughout the entire year, which makes it even easier for fans to take part in the fun. These events are an opportunity for Jeep fans to get together, take part in off-roading trails, and show off their skills and love for the vehicle. If you want to take part in this fun weekend event, make sure to check their website for upcoming locations so you can register ahead of time.
New Jersey Jeep Invasion
This annual event is both a celebration of Jeeps and a charity event that has helped organizations such as the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and Move for Hunger in previous years. From beach obstacle courses to full-blow parades and even a free concert, there’s no shortage of fun at the New Jersey Jeep Invasion. Plus, you get the opportunity to have fun while also raising funds for a good cause.
These Jeep events to put on your calendar will offer you and your friends or family an entertaining afternoon or weekend. Although the festivities offered by the three events differ in some ways, each one provides the opportunity to showcase your latest Jeep restoration.
