The Jeeps and Jamz Expo is only a few weeks away, and organizers are accepting donations — such as dirt, large rocks, fallen trees, crumbled asphalt, and other elements — for the Jeep Obstacle Course.

This obstacle course is set to be a top attraction during the expo, aiming to provide Jeep enthusiasts with a practical training ground. While the expo will actually be held at the Convention Cetner from June 6-9, the obstacle course will be staged at Windy Hollow Speedway from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 7-8.

Those interested in donating can contact Jennie Smith at [email protected].

Regarding the rest of the 4-day event, organizers said guests can expect a Diecast car drag race designed for the youngest Jeep fans, an expanded food truck lineup, and a Kidz Zone. Additionally, a new “closing party” will provide attendees with a festive finale to the weekend’s events.

“We’re thrilled to bring back the Jeeps and Jamz Expo with new additions that will provide fun for the entire family,” event organizer Jennie Smith said previously. “From our inaugural kickoff party to the adventure-filled obstacle course and the peaceful Jeep Church, there’s something for everyone.”

In addition to the festivities, the expo will feature an array of Jeep accessory vendors from across the United States, showcasing their latest and most innovative products.

Tickets are available for purchase, with options ranging from single-day passes to VIP packages. Children under 12 attend for free.
