It’s Official: Toledo Jeep Fest Will Thunder Back in 2021


Celebrating the 80th Anniversary of All Things Jeep

Yesterday, Toledo Jeep Fest event organizers announced that the wildly popular event will return during the weekend of August 6th to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the iconic Jeep brand and it’s inseparable rich history with the city of Toledo – HOME of the Jeep.

Toledo Jeep Fest is incredibly important to the overall economic vitality of Northwest Ohio and the Toledo area, and although the event was cancelled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, event organizers are confident that the largely outdoor event can be enjoyed safely this August.

The Jeep brand is celebrating 80 years of capability, innovation, and an underlying sense of adventure in 2021, and Toledo Jeep Fest will provide a fitting and proud backdrop for 80th anniversary activities.

Dana Incorporated and ProMedica will return as presenting sponsors of the fourth Toledo Jeep Fest. As part of its sponsorship, Dana will feature a large semi-trailer and other Dana products and vehicles all prominently showcased on the festival’s Vendor Midway.

Toledo Jeep History

Jeep is fundamental to Toledo’s heritage. In 1941, Willys-Overland won a significant United States Military contract to design the Willys MB, a four-wheel drive utility vehicle that was manufactured throughout World War II. Today, Toledo is the only place in the world making the iconic Jeep Wrangler. Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s Toledo Assembly Complex is one of the region’s largest and most modern manufacturing plants. For 80 years, Jeep has been touching the lives of Toledoans and in August 2021, the City will celebrate that rich history.
