Jeeptoberfest – Belleview, Florida

Jeeptoberfest is a great family event with lots of Jeeps, vendors, family and Kids.

Saturday October 15, 2016 Theresa loaded up the Jeep and headed to Jeeptoberfest an annual event sponsored by the Ocala Jeep Club.

The event is held at Market of Marion 12888 SE US Hwy 441, Belleview, FL 34420 just about a two-hour ride up Interstate 75.

Jeeptoberfest is one of the largest Jeep Only events in the Southeast. The annual fundraiser event of the Ocala Jeep Club was held October 15th and 16th at the Market of Marion, 12888 SE U.S. 441, Belleview. This year will celebrate 19 years! Over the past 17 years, Jeeptoberfest has raised more than $100,000 for local deserving charities.

This is the second year we have attended the event.

Jeeptoberfest is a great family event with lots of Jeeps, vendors, family and kids.

The Market of Marion is a giant flea market similar to the Wagon Wheel Flea Market in Pinellas Park and the Oldsmar Flea Market.

The big difference is there is a major off-road obstacle track at the back of the Market of Marion, and that is the highlight of Jeeptoberfest.

Jeeptoberfest is very well run event suitable for families and kids. If you don't want to take your jeep on the off-road track, spectator entry fee is just $5.00 per person.

I have posted on Jeep events before, and the story is best told in pictures. You can see my Gallery of over 200 pictures, including some action sequences at Jeeptoberfest 2016.

I have been driving jeeps for over 30 years, and it is a ton of fun. So if you're looking for a car consider a new or used Jeep. Not only do you get a great way to get around and Jeeping is a great family hobby.
