Pre & On-Site Registration Details

Pre-Registration:  Save time and pre-register your Jeep by Sunday, May 17.  Your registration packet will be mailed to you at the end of May so you do not need to wait in any lines to pick up the materials you need to participate with your Jeep. Those who pre-register by May 17 also have the opportunity to save money by purchasing the Festival packages and discounted three-day spectator tickets for their passengers.  Pre-registration is required if you wish to participate in the Jeep Parade Only or Jeep Parade/Jeep Invasion.
