2015 Festival

OK, I'm gonna start this out for 2015...Who's coming? Last year I was there with my 2007 lifted liberty. Well I traded that for a 2015 Wrangler unlimited. My Christmas present from my wife. I'm gonna be there for Jeep invasion and the parade. Who else is coming? What say you?

Sorry I didn't get back here sooner, been a busy week. I plan to do a lot more than last year. I went on Friday. Had a good time checking out the vendors and the layout. I want to do a trail ride this year. I went nuts on the invasion with my DSLR and took over a hundred pictures. I should create a slideshow and put it on YouTube. Last year I was one of 3 Libbys on the street. This year I'm the newb with the hardly modded JK.

Got the email yesterday. Have to talk to son about what day looks good and what activities. The glacier tour is interesting but cuts it close to the parade time.

They have packages this year. I got the one for $75 and it is good for all three days. I will head up on Friday, run some trails, get into the parade and then head back up on Saturday for some more fun (Playground, check out the displays, etc...).

Be there as well

This will be the first year. Got a spot at coopers lake campground. Will be in the Shady Haven section. Anyone know much about coopers lake when staying there for the Jeep Fest? Stop by and say hi if anyone is around!

Don't know much about Coopers, but I know the area. There is also Beat Run campground a few miles away from it if Coopers gets full. There is stuff to do in there area not related to the jeep festival

So this is my first time going to this festival. Is there parts for sale here also. I'm specifically looking for rock sliders and front tube fenders for my tj. Anyone think I can find them there or should I just go ahead and buy them now.

There are vendors. Usually quadratec has a big tent and 4wd hardware along with others.

Many have show prices so sometimes can get a really good deal

Leaving that Thursday from Roanoke, VA for our first trip there. We will be towing our 01 Sahara and staying at the Holiday Inn Express near Butler. Getting pretty excited about it!

Yes it was! I should have brought my trailer to the parade.

What number were you in the Parade?

I was number 1200.
