The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival is a tribute event for the father of all jeeps, the history behind it, the people who created it, and its birthplace, Butler, Pennsylvania. The main event is at Coopers Lake Campground while the Jeep Invasion takes place in Downtown Butler.
If you missed online registration, don’t worry because you can still participate with your Jeep. On-site registration will take place at Cooper’s Lake Campground beginning at 8 a.m. each day. When arriving at the Festival, enter at the Main Entrance and then follow signs to the On-Site registration tent.
Also, on Friday only between 2 and 6 p.m., you can register your Jeep for the Invasion or any of the activities that are still available at Clearview Mall, just north of Butler on Route 8. Look for us near the center of the mall.
Your Jeep must be registered in order to participate in any Festival activities. Some activities may have reached capacity and will no longer be available.
A collage of 1940s newspaper headlines, Jeep illustrations and vintage Jeep advertisements are the focus of the new 2013 Friends of the Festival limited edition print unveiled today by the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival. The new print is the third in a series of artwork created exclusively for the “Friends of the Festival.”
The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival has finalized plans for the third annual event celebrating Butler, Pa. as the birthplace of the Jeep. New this year, the Festival will take place over three full days, June 14-16, 2013, at Cooper’s Lake Campground, just 10 minutes west of the previous location.
“We’re excited to grow the event into three days so Jeepers can make the Festival be part of a new Father’s Day weekend tradition,” said Patti Jo Lambert, Festival director. “The additional day gives Jeep enthusiasts the chance to have more fun with their family, whether they spend all three days in Butler County or attend the Festival and then return home for other family activities.”
The event will feature the popular Jeep Invasion in downtown Butler on Friday night, June 14, as well as a new off-road playground, mud pit, rock crawl, trail rides, WWII encampment, history displays, national vendors, how-to clinics, flea market and more each day.
