Toledo Jeep Fest

Anyone heading to the Toledo Jeep Fest on August 13th? Sounds like a neat event with a Jeep Parade and all Jeep Car Show in downtown Toledo. They are planning three stages with live music, big food area and vendor displays.
A lot of historical Jeeps and some concept Jeeps from FCA to help celebrate the 75th anniversary of Jeep production in Toledo. There is more info on the Toledo jeep fest facebook page and on-line registration on cvent.com.

I have thought about it. Just depends what's going on around that time. Will most likely be a last minute decision.

7/29 is the last day for Toledo Jeep Fest registration and the event is just over two weeks away. We have over 850 Jeep vehicles registered from nearly all 75 years of production. 15 States and Canada are represented as participants and or vendors. We have assembled some of the most unusual and rare Jeeps ever produced. The City of Toledo will be All Jeep All Day on August 13th. The event will kick-off at 11:00am with a televised parade on WTVG an ABC affiliate and run until 6:00 pm. There are Jeep related activities several days before the Toledo event in Monroe Michigan with a Jeeps and Jazz Festival sponsored by Monroe Jeep Superstore. Omix-ADA is a "Showcase Sponsor" for the event and will have about a dozen Historic and current tricked out Jeep models on display If you live in the Mid-west, you will not want to miss this one. Register at Toledo Jeep Fest cvent.

Don't forget to check out the Toledo Jeep Fest next Saturday August 13th in downtown Toledo. Over 900 Jeeps are registered for the event with lots of vendors and cool displays. Goodyear is celebrating their 75th Anniversary as an Original Equipment supplier of tires to the Jeep Brand. Please be sure to stop by the Goodyear display in the Convention Center to drop off your entry for a chance to win 4 Goodyear tires! Who can't use a set of free tires?

Thanks to everyone who made the Trip to Toledo for the Jeep Fest, you made the inaugural event awesome with over 1000 Jeeps from all 75 years of Production and over 30,000 participants and spectators. We could never had done this without our sponsors, so special kudos to Dana, Mercy Hospital and the incredible Omix-ADA team from Suwanee, Georgia. Henk and Dave brought vehicles from the Omix-ADA Museum to help create a historical Jeep display that was as good as it gets and clearly set a new bar for a one day event. A big "Jeep Wave" to everyone. Let's hear from you if you think we should do this again next year.
