Expect to see a small army of Jeeps on the road this week as over 1000 Jeeps invade Ocean City and Berlin for the four-day event. Of course spectators will flock to the beach as well to enjoy events like the Jeep Crawl and the Jeep Jam, which just so happen to be two or our favorite aspects of Jeep Week! The four-day extravaganza is fun for all ages, with exhibits and events to be held in both Berlin and Ocean City.
Jeep Week will officially kick off Thursday morning with the early morning beach crawl. Jeeps will start at 30th Street and move south to the Inlet parking lot with a parade of over 250 Jeeps. It’s worth the early morning trip to the beach, just grab a coffee and a chair or blanket and sit back and enjoy the free show. Parades will also occur Friday and Saturday morning at 8am in case you miss the first outing. The fun continues Thursday evening with a welcoming party at Fish Tales. Expect a display of Jeeps in the parking lot, as visitors continue to roll into town for the four-day event.
Friday and Saturday, meet us in Berlin for the annual Jeep Jam! It’s the signature event for Jeep Week as C.C. Customs welcomes thousands of Jeeps and spectators to town for their massive obstacle course, trails and mud pits. Crowds typically arrive in town early for this one, as they watch Jeeps tackle the hills, trails, mud, and crushed cars. It’s an all-day affair, with Jeeps hitting the course from 9am until 6pm on Friday and 10am until 7pm Saturday. Sunday morning will bring an end to Jeep Week 2015, but not before a Sunday Morning Send Off at Hooper’s Crab House in West Ocean City.
The Jeep Week HQ will be located at the Roland A. Powell Convention Center in OCMD, with a wide range of events and entertainment starting Thursday morning at 10am. Browse some of the top Jeep and 4X4 vendors in the world, speak with experts, shop vendor booths and more. There will also be performances by 10-time World Champion BMX stunt rider Mike Steidley, a meet-and-greet with Genrite off-road legend Tony Pellegrino, a display of monster truck Siagon Shaker as well as a meet-and-greet with the driver, a live Jeep build by C.C. Customs, and monster truck rides in the parking lot. Also featured this year is “The World’s Biggest Jeep” built by Velocity Channel’s Junkyard Empire star, Tim Bostic.
And if you can’t make it, look for our photos! We’ll be visiting both the Berlin and OC events for this year’s Jeep Week. One of the best parts about the end to the summer season is the start of festival season here on Delmarva. Jeep Week, Sunfest, Bike Week, the Crisfield Hard Crab Derby, and the Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival are just a few of the weekend events headed our way. See you all there!
