Navigating The Toledo Jeep Fest— Off-Road

Seeing a jeep in Toledo isn’t exactly remarkable, but what about the thousands of jeeps roaming downtown?

Marvel at this and other spectacles during the second Toledo Jeep® Fest, 10.-12. August, a three-day spectacle with entertainment, car shows, live music and of course lots of reasons to get the engine going.

Re-launching the half-day festival in 2016 that drew 20,000 people, this year’s Jeep® Fest will bring an unusually lively atmosphere to downtown Toledo throughout the weekend.
