Second Weekend in June
The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival is a tribute event for the father of all jeeps, the history behind it, the people who created it, and its birthplace, Butler Pennsylvania. The event provides Jeep enthusiasts with on and off-road experiences to embrace the vehicle's past and the lifestyle it now promotes. The family-friendly event is held at Coopers Lake Campground, about an hour north of Pittsburgh, PA every year on the second weekend of June. The Festival has on-site off-road trails, playground with obstacles, Jeep History exhibit, huge vendor area with 150+ companies and more!
The Friends of the Bantam Jeep Association, Inc. (FBJA), created in 2015, is a non-profit organization comprised of a group of committed volunteers who plan and execute the Festival. The FBJA provides opportunities for Jeep owners and Jeep enthusiasts worldwide to learn, share, and celebrate Jeep ownership. FBJA educates the public about the history of the Bantam jeep’s historical roots in Western Pennsylvania and Butler, PA and its successors. The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival enables FBJA to use its operational proceeds to support charitable contributions to other local non-profit organizations in the community.
