What started as a small group of enthusiasts has grown into an annual phenomenon, and now, for the 6th time, Jeep Week returns to Ocean City, Md. The 6th annual Ocean City Jeep Week is gearing up to be the biggest and baddest yet in the event’s history, so if your mentality is ‘It’s a Jeep thing’ than the beach is where you need to be this weekend.
Although there are various events and competitions all across town, Jeep Week’s main attractions are three-fold:
First, the daily Beach Crawls attract hundreds of Jeeps and thousands of spectators. The participants in the Beach Crawl get the rare opportunity to drive their Jeeps on Ocean City’s sand as they parade down the shoreline from Jolly Rodgers to the Inlet. The Beach Crawls take place Friday and Saaurday from 7-9:30am.
The next epicenter of Jeep Week action is the Convention Center, where thousands of Jeep enthusiasts will gather for Jeep displays, Show and Shine competitions, live music, celebrity appearances, a Monster Truck Showcase, kids zone, photo ops, and more. The Convention Center party happens Friday and Saturday from 11am-6pm and is followed by the Family Fun Mixer at Hooper’s Crab House from 6-9.
Berlin will be home to the final main attraction, the annual Jeep Jam– an obstacle course featuring a mud pit, rollers, a tree climb, log roads, and other fun and challenging hazards. Jeep Jam takes place across from Burley Oak Brewing Co. on Friday (9am-1pm) and Saturday (10am-2pm and 3-7pm).
