While the 2020 event took a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers are optimistic that the 80th celebration can be safely held in late summer as the majority of Jeep Fest activities take place outdoors.

“The good news is that it’s out there, we can distance ourselves socially, we’ll probably all wear masks for a while. So yeah, we’re optimistic that it will be a really great, safe event like it always was,” said Randy Oostra, President and CEO of ProMedica Health System.

Jerry Huber, retired Jeep plant manager and board member of the Toledo Jeep Fest, says having ProMedica as a sponsor is a conscience in healthcare.

“We have a good resource bank to make the right decisions and get this thing right and to make sure everyone is having a good time and is safe,” said Huber.

Until about the beginning of this month, the board was still considering canceling the Jeep Fest this year.

“We didn’t want to do it. And then we kept chewing on it and watching how things went with the COVID-19 thing. We thought it would be a good time for our whole country to have a festival and the men too.” honor and women who make these jeeps every day, “said Bruce Baumhower, president of Local 12 and board member of Toledo Jeep Fest.
