Hype Bashes Begin: Toledo Walleye and Williams Brothers Lead

We get set to kick off our 2023 Toledo Jeep Fest Hype Bash schedule with two great events.

On Friday, April 21, the first TJF Hype Bash will be hosted by the Toledo Walleye at the Huntington Center. Toledo Jeep Fest fans can sit in the same section together by purchasing tickets at this link – fevo.me/jeep2023. Toledo Jeep Fest team members will be out in the concourse with info about the upcoming August 4-6 event.

On Saturday, April 22, Williams Brothers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Dundee will host our second bash in Dundee, Michigan, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. We will have car smashing, a live band, food trucks, a RC course and more.

What is a Hype Bash?

It’s like practice for our big event on Aug. 4-6. Hype Bashes are fun Jeep events held at sponsors and vendors facilities. Sponsors like Williams Brothers Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, Monroe Superstore, Charlie’s Dodge Jeep Ram, Toledo Speedway and Michigan Technical Resource Park, as well as the Toledo Walleye and Toledo Mud Hens.

All Hype Bashes include Jeeps, information on the upcoming event, Jeep Fest gear for sale, and giveaway and raffle items from our Jeep vendors. Hype Bashes at the dealerships also include RTI Ramp & Balance Blocks Opportunities sponsored by the Glass City Crawlers, vendors, DJs and food trucks. There are usually small RC courses and a few games for the kids and sometimes car crushing opportunities.

Hype Bashes are pre-fun before the big fun on August 4-6. Hype Bashes are a great way for the Jeep community to get together and plan their summer trail adventures and for anybody who loves Jeeps to get a preview of the awesome vehicles that will probably be in our All-Jeep Parade on August 5.
