I just found this event. I have never been to this but it looks like a fun time. I am planning to attend it this year. Would be great to have a bunch of Jeepers from this forum meet up.

Location: Connecticut

Took me a minute to figure out where this rally is. Nowhere on their site does it clearly say anything like "Connecticut based Jeep Rally" or "Largest Rally in New England". Coulda been in Texas for all I knew...:hi:

I had the same trouble. I just figured if it had anything to do with Quadratec that it was somewhere on the east coast

It's the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival.

Held every year in Butler, PA. WJLizard, XJSuperman and myself have all been there. Butler, PA is the birthplace of the Jeep. So they celebrate it every year with a weekend festival and a parade through butler. We were all part of a Guinness World Record parade during the 75th anniversary a couple years ago. over 2400 jeeps. It was awesome.

Give the guy a break Gluck. If you are old school, you know that Jeeps started life as Bantam prototypes. Very rare now. Willys and Ford got the contract to build the MB/GPW we all know and love

I wasn't being hard on him. We like to rib around here every now and then. I know lots of folks don't know about Bantam. That's why I dropped a link. ;)

Bantam is huge. Some of these big jeep events are growing to unmanageable sizes and the only problems are the lines and wait times.

The Iowa jeep show isn't that big yet (300+ jeeps) but I'm guessing your rally is close to that. Really a good size to keep everyone entertained and happy.

If it wasn't in the far corner of the country id try and go.

I’ll be running it. Look for the baby 9er and some crazy dude in a Miller Motorsports hat driving a golf cart around
