The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival, held in Butler, Pennsylvania is reporting pre-registration for the event is at 1,557 Jeeps — nearly 500 more than 2013. Last year, more than 15,000 people attended the three-day gathering.
The Easter Jeep Safari, held in Moab, Utah earlier during the year, now draws more than 10,000 attendees for the week-long event.
The Butler festival is held in tribute to the Bantam Jeep developed to benefit the Allied forces of World War II.
Attendees come from all around the world to participate in the Jeep festival, which also includes off-roading events, special guest speakers and Jeep vendors.
There also will be a number of activities for families along with a few outdoor challenges, which will always be a staple at any Jeep event regardless of how big the brand gets.
