Bantam Jeep with Del Albright

By Brian Riddle | July 20, 2015

The KrawlZone Team was very excited when we found out we were headed to the Bantam Jeep Festival. After the Unlimited Off Road Expo, we jumped in with or good friends from TnT Customs and for the next 5 days traveled, camped and wheeled some of the most beautiful trails we had ever seen! After a great week of fun and wheeling we landed in Butler PA for the Bantam Jeep Festival. We realized quickly that this was going to be an amazing event. We were only a few of the many thousands of Jeep enthusiasts who journeyed to the birthplace of the Jeep for Bantam’s 75th Birthday Bash! The overall three-day attendance at Coopers Lake was approximately 25,000 (25% more than 2014). The overall attendance number includes registered Jeep drivers, ticketed passengers, walk-in spectators, volunteers, sponsors and vendors. It does not include the additional 20,000+ people who filled the streets of Downtown Butler for the Jeep Parade and Invasion.

The event welcomed 2,937 registered Jeeps throughout the weekend. This result is 1,000+ more Jeeps than in 2014 – simply amazing! Registered Jeeps came from a record number 38 states and Canada. This figure does not include the hundreds of sponsor and vendor Jeeps parked in booths or the thousands of Jeeps in the parking area. The Guinness World Record Parade was comprised of 2,420 Jeeps making their way to downtown Butler. They will be submitting the documentation to Guinness soon and will be anxiously awaiting their official ruling in the next 8-12 weeks.

We hope to see you next year for all the fun and excitement planned for the 6th annual Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival, on June 10-12, 2016. Mark your calendars for the second weekend in June! We will be releasing our KrawlZone episode of the Bantam Jeep Festival/Holiday Hill Trail in a few days. Be sure to check our website often.
