MAGGIE VALLEY — A jeep rally featuring group rides, a festival atmosphere and camaraderie with fellow jeepers will be held Friday and Saturday, June 11-12, at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds.

Spectators are invited to check out the ‘Glow Ride’ Jeepers parade at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 12. A jeep caravan decked out in halos, rock lights and colored light bars will make the trip up and down the main drag of Soco Road in Maggie Valley.

WNC Jeep Fest will include a Show & Shine competition on Saturday, educational sessions both days, and guided rides throughout the weekend — including two guided rides to choose from on Sunday, June 13.

The festival hosted by the WNC Jeepers club made its inaugural debut as a one-day event last year, and was such a success, it’s two days this year.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.

Tickets range from $7-25 and are available by clicking here. All ages are welcome; children ages 7 and under are free.
