Toledo Jeep Fest Returns to Downtown Toledo in 2023

Toledo Jeep Fest is here again! The weekend-long festival celebrating the Toledo-made vehicle is shaping up to be a great one. The 6th Annual Toledo Jeep Fest will take place August 4-6. With activities for the whole family to enjoy, this free festival is sure to be a blast.

Footprint and activities

Toledo Jeep Fest is unique in that it is the only Jeep Fest in the nation that takes place in a downtown setting. The festival takes place in Promenade Park and Levis Square and moves up into the core of downtown. The weekend kicks off with a concert in Promenade Park on Friday night with country music singer Scotty McCreery. The fun on Saturday starts with the All-Jeep Parade that winds over 1,200 Jeeps throughout downtown. The rest of the day includes activities for the whole family. See footprint here.
