Register Your Jeep On-Site at the Festival


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.

Now there are even more reasons to start your Bantam weekend on Thursday night, June 8. Our Night Ops Mission #2017 package is rewarding night owls who select trail rides in our later time slots. Select a ride in the 10 p.m. hour and save $25.  If you choose the 11 p.m. hour, you can save $50. 

Our Night Ops package offers much more than a fun stock trail ride in the dark. It also features our most popular Festival activities, including the Jeep Invasion, Playground and On-Trail Trails, the Mystery Road Rally and Ruff 'n Tuff.  The Night Ops Mission #2017 is presented by Rigid Industries and Volant Performance.

Each registered Jeep will also receive an exclusive gift bag at the start of the trail ride. Participants will receive limited-edition Bantam Night Ops Mission #2017 t-shirts (2 per Jeep), a light and a Bantam vehicle flag. In addition, each registered Jeep will receive a $25 voucher to use during the entire month of June at two of Butler County's most popular restaurants, North Country Brewing Company in Slippery Rock and the Harmony Inn in Harmony. Your voucher can also be used at a new Saturday night event that we'll be announcing soon.  With our Night Owl promotion, the package costs $250 for trail rides during the 9 p.m. hour, $225 for 10 p.m. rides and $200 for 11 p.m. rides.
