2017 Festival Results & Photos

Thank you all for joining us for our 7th annual Festival. We had a total of 2,420 registered Jeeps this year, which was a 12% increase from 2016.  140 sponsors and vendors also joined us at Coopers Lake! There were more than +20,000 people at the Festival grounds over the course of the three days, which was a 20% increase from 2016's attendance. There was also more than 15,000 Jeep lovers in downtown Butler for the Jeep Invasion on Friday night.  Jeepers journeyed from 27 states and Canada to the birthplace of the Jeep!

If you missed our pre-registration, don’t worry!  You can still be part of one of the most popular Jeep-only events in the entire United States.

On-site registration opens at 8 a.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 9-11, and closes one hour before the Festival ends each day.  When you arrive at the Festival’s Main Entrance at Cooper’s Lake Campground, simply make the first right turn after you enter the lot and proceed to the large Registration tent (see map for location).  We accept both cash and credit. There is an on-site registration fee of $10.
