2024 Jeep Invasion Itinerary


On Friday the Jeeps will get together at Langram and Meechen Rd. across from the airport for a drone photo!


Saturday at Heineman’s Winery everyone will get together from 10 AM-2 PM and show off their Jeeps. There will be prizes given out at 1:30 PM. Then, take part in the Jeep scavenger hunt of Put-in-Bay! This will be a photo scavenger hunt and there will be some fantastic prizes!


The highlight of the Jeep weekend is Sunday though, when all of the Jeeps join Put-in-Bay’s famous Antique Car Parade. The Antique Car Parade starts at 1 PM at the Twine Shanty by the Miller Ferry dock. The cars will then tour around the entire island. It’s a unique Put-in-Bay tradition, as nowhere in the world has more antique cars per capita than Put-in-Bay!

Many people turn this into a camping weekend and camp out at the South Bass Island State Park. However, they’re already filled up for this weekend. We recommend the Island Club, centrally located on the island, and with each house having a driveway for your Jeep! Check them out here or call (216) 898-9951.
