Car show season is usually April through October. There are hundreds of great car shows in our area that all benefit great causes but unfortunately we can’t make it to all of them. We try to make every veteran and first responder event we can. Here are some of our favorite shows that are held yearly.
The Delaware Park Car Show “BEERS & GEARS“ is organized by TRISAW Events.. The show is held in October at the Delaware Park & Casino. This is a HUGE car show! At least 500 cars show up, and others try to get in even when the lot fills. In addition to the awesome cars, there’s a DJ, food trucks and a beer garden. We will be taking the Mini Jeep, so if there is a people’s choice…please vote for us!
JEEPERS BACK THE BLUE
In 2017, Cpl. Stephen Ballard of the Delaware State Police was tragically gunned down in the line of duty. Since that day, Jeep owners from all over the country have been keeping his legacy alive by supporting the Jeepers Back the Blue Foundation. At the annual Jamboree, jeep owners from all over the country, converge to take laps around the famed Monster Mile. The event also includes displays and demos from at least 10 different police agencies, awesome vendors, delicious food trucks, and tons of raffle items. This is a great cause and an opportunity to see our jeep attempt to hang on to the steep banks of the Monster Mile!
The Mushroom Festival is an annual event held in our hometown of Kennett Square, PA in September. Kennett Square is know as the Mushroom Capital of the World as it produces about one half of all the mushrooms produced in the United States.
The show is is held on Saturday and covers 4 street blocks. In addition to the car show, there’s loads to do at the Mushroom Festival. It’s a great time and loads of great food. It was even featured on the Food Network as one of the country’s best food festivals. We usually take both jeeps, the bomb trailer and a small display of military items.
The Ocean City Jeep Invasion is organized by NJ Jeep Invasions. This is a first class event and is usually held in October in Ocean City, NJ. There are usually 500 jeeps that parade through OCNJ and end up on the boardwalk for an all-day event. You can’t beat the beach, boards and Jeeps!
