Save this page and come back often. We’ll update this article as we learn about new things happening in 2023.
What is Jeep Week?
Jeep Week is a week-long party for people who like Jeeps. Jeep-themed events like off-road trail rides, Jeep parades, Jeep scavenger hunts, Jeep obstacle courses, and Jeep beauty contests will bring people together. After-market companies and Jeep brand vendors will set up vendor areas to sell cool and unique products. It’s a great way to get to know other Jeepers and catch up with old friends. There are many interesting things for everyone to do at these events.
Are there any Jeep Weeks in the US?
There are a lot of them. The Jeep Beach event in Daytona Beach, and the Florida Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, which lasts for nine days, are the most popular Jeep Weeks. Many other places in the US also have shorter Jeep-related events. Some of the most better-known are the Ocean City Jeep Week in Maryland, and the Florida Jeep Jam in Panama City, offering the favorite beach crawl.
1. Easter Jeep Safari (Saturday, April 1 – Sunday, April 9, 2023)
During the 9 days of the Easter Jeep Safari, people leave Moab, Utah, on mostly day-long trail rides. The Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, is put on by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers (RR4W). It takes place near Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, showing off some of Utah’s most beautiful scenery. This nine-day event has been going on since 1967. It starts on Saturday, one week before Easter (as the name suggests). The Easter Jeep Safari has 40 beautiful trails that range in difficulty from 2 to 9. It’s also where Jeep shows off its newest concept vehicles, giving attendees a sneak peek at the brand’s future. It also has a large display of products from vendors in the after-market. Big Saturday is the main event. It is a huge parade of 4×4 vehicles that all leave Moab at the same time. With a small entrance fee of $50 per vehicle per day, you won’t regret going on this Jeep adventure.

The event organizers expect a big turnout again in 2023 since this time of year is the best time for Jeep owners to live out their dream vacation. Unlike events in September or December, for example, you’ll be on the beach in the middle of Spring. All trim levels are welcome, whether you have an old car or a new one. This big Jeep event starts with a Jeep Beach 5K Fun Run and ends with an epic Jeep Beach Parade. In between, there’s a Jeep luau, a Tiki party, a “Show N Shine” Jeep beauty contest, off-road mudding, beach games for families, and live entertainment. You can also just chill out on Daytona Beach on a Friday or Saturday night. The event also has over 200 vendors at the Daytona International Speedway selling all the newest Jeep products and gear. The entrance fee is $80 per vehicle, which gets you into all of the official events at Jeep Beach. And you won’t regret your revelry: Since 2012, Jeep Beach has raised and given more than $2 million to local and national charities.

4. Jeep Jamboree USA: Just announced trips for 2023!
Jeep Jamboree USA gives Jeep owners off-road adventure weekends at some of the most exciting places to go off-roading in the United States. In 2022, they planned more than 30 trips in 24 states for Jeep fans to go on outdoor adventures in places like the Badlands, Ozarks, Oregon dunes, Death Valley, the Catskills, and the Texas Hill Country. The 22-mile Rubicon trail is one of the most famous trips. It is an old Native American footpath that gold rushers used to get through the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In 1953, Mark A. Smith held the first off-road Jamboree on this trail. This trail is a big inspiration for the Jeep Rubicon. Each Jamboree is run by experienced guides and has activities for people with different levels of off-roading skills. Anyone with a Jeep that has a 4-LO transfer case can join. Bring your Jeep and get ready to meet some new friends. Check out this handy map of events to find out what’s going on near you in 2023.

11. Jeep Rocks and Road Tour
The Jeep Rocks and Road Tour isn’t just a tough course for Jeep fans to see how far their vehicles can go; it’s also a place where Jeep tests its own vehicles. There are mud pits, log paths, big rocks, and a lot more on the 16-city course. This is a really hard course that helps Jeep fans and designers find out what their cars can really do.
There are other things to do on the Rocks and Road Tour, like a Jeep owner’s playground where people can show off their own vehicles and look at those of other Jeep owners. There is a climbing wall for people who want to see how strong they are, and there is also an obstacle course for kids. Video kiosks also let people record their own “confessionals” about what it was like after experiencing the course.

Willys at Whitewater Ranch is smaller and less formal than the other Jeep events. Therefore, Jeep owners can meet more people and really get to know one better. They won’t get lost in the crowd or feel overwhelmed by all the festivities.

Going to a Jeep Week
Jeep Weeks are a fun way to party with other people who love the Jeep brand as much as you do. Plus, you’ll get to show off your cool Jeep to people who will appreciate it. Fellow Jeep owners say that this year’s weekend events for people who like four-wheel-drive adventures should be on the list of the best vacations for active families.
