For those visiting Toledo’s Jeep Fest this weekend, there’s a lot to do in town. Toledo will be celebrating Jeep’s 75th year by presenting the Toledo Jeep Fest, a free public event that will take place on August 13 from 11:00 am- 6:00 pm. Some streets will be closed for the daylong festival while other exhibits will be held at the SeaGate Convention Centre.


The Toledo Jeep Fest will feature indoor and outdoor car shows, a parade, historic displays, Jeep accessory vendors and food and live music. There are also a number of other exciting things to do while you are visiting downtown Toledo and the surrounding area.
