Jeep Fest 2022 is coming to town with country singer Justin Moore on stage

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – It’s a celebration of all things Jeep!

The 2022 Jeep Fest kicked off on Friday and culminated that night with a big country concert at Promenade Park.

Jeep enthusiasts and country music fans gathered to listen to Justin Moore. The concert set the tone for the weekend, and the “Why We Drink” crooner was a hit with young and old alike.

13abc spoke with a couple who drove two hours from Bellefountaine, Ohio to be at Jeep Fest. They are very excited for the parade.

“We’ve seen some pretty cool jeeps already, but the party will be fun, along with the vending machines and the shopping,” Jessica and Jonathan Messenger said.

A Jeep enthusiast from the Dayton area was also in town. Bob Corcoran works for Rock Krawler, a company that cheats Jeeps.

“I am a Jeep person through and through. I’m into this thing everyday,” Corcoran said. “Even before working for Rock Krawler, I was a customer for four years. I’ve been to 47 states in this Jeep.

Corcoran is here with Rock Krawler to talk about the suspensions, which make Jeeps sit high off the ground. They are important if you want to take your Jeep over big bumps and big rocks. It’s part of what he loves about his wrangler – the versatility.

“Basically this Jeep is used for everything. I can go to the grocery store, I can go to a wedding, I can go to the mountains in Colorado and Utah, whatever you want,” Corcoran said. “It’s an everyday crawling machine.”

Corcoran said his Jeep is his pride and joy and he wants to show people how they can spice up their Jeep and take it anywhere.

“The big thing I want people to know and take away when they talk to me is that it doesn’t matter if you bought a Jeep yesterday or 50 years ago. This sport/hobby is the best thing you can get involved IMHO It’s great fun and there’s always something to learn.
