Dates - Tuesday May 15th through Sunday May 20th at Frank Brown Park, Panama City Beach, FL. Anyone interested needs to contact me at cell 850-624-6319. First come first serve. DO NOT REGISTER ON THE JBJ WEB SITE. You do not have attend all 6 days, but by Friday and Saturday the place is very well attended.

CLICK HERE FOR EVENT DETAILS JBJ welcomed over 900 jeeps its inaugural year and over 1200 Jeeps in year two. JBJ is now gearing up for its 3rd Annual Jeep Beach Jam, May 15-20, 2018. JBJ is estimating more than 2,000 jeeps from over 14 States will invade Panama City Beach that week.
We will set up a display called Camp Jeep. This is where any and all types of Military Vehicles can be displayed. We need everything, from Jeeps to Dodges, Armor, and M Series large trucks. Again, there is NO ENTRY FEE for military vehicles throughout the length of the show, if you are one of the first 18 to contact me. That's how many free slots the promotor said he would provide to the MVPA. I do need you to let me know ASAP, within the next few days, if you wish to attend. I can then tell the promotor how many passes we will need. There will be a Parade Saturday evening through the streets of Pier Park, across Highway 98 from Frank Brown Park. All MVs will be at the start of the Parade, as it is Armed Forces Weekend, and the promotor is a strong advocate for our military.
Yes, most of the Jeeps at the event are civilian, but there are a good number of CJ's from different years and Scramblers in attendance. We set up Camp Jeep twice now, and it received a lot of attention. There will be Jeep parts and accessories vendor area and there are food venders on site. You may want to try the jeep obstacle course for fun. Don't forget your sun block. :)
