Jeep Invasion

Put-in-Bay Jeep Invasion

The Put-in-Bay annual Jeep invasion is a fun event that attracts dozens of jeep lovers to our island.

Here is what a typical Jeep invasion itinerary looks like:

FRIDAY: Get on the Ferry early!
4PM drone photo at 1351 Langram Rd, Put In Bay, OH 43456
Meet & Greet 5-8 PM light dinner will be served as you pick up pre-ordered T-shirts and goodie bags. Shelter House 1 at the campground. South Bass Island State Park. 4 grills available if you want to cook something else too.

SATURDAY: 10:00am-12:30 Show N Shine at Heinemans Winery. Trophies given immediately after. Take group photos, pick up T-shirts and goodie bags.
Prizes from our sponsors and remaining T-shirts will be given out starting 7pm at Joe’s Bar right by the campground. They have food to buy and room for our Jeeps.

SUNDAY: Antique Car Parade 1pm Twine Shanty (North of Miller Ferry dock) Jeeps 1993 and older can join existing weekly parade. Parade departs at 2pm.

However, much of the appeal isn’t just in the Jeeps themselves — it’s the community of people who come together to celebrate their favorite vehicles.

How to bring your Jeep over to Put-in-Bay?

Guest coming to Put-in-Bay for the Jeep invasion can bring their beloved vehicle over on the Miller Ferry. The Miller Ferry is the only transportation service to Put-in-Bay and other Lake Erie Islands that has the capacity to transport both vehicles and passengers. Located near cities like Cleveland, Toledo and Sanduksy, The Miller Ferry is a great way to get to Put-in-Bay. The only other ferry service is the Jet Express which offers passenger only travel from Port Clinton to downtown Put-in-Bay.
