    31St. Annual Spring Willys Reunion

    The 31st Annual Willys Reunion at the Hilton Garden Inn, North Canton, Ohio.

    As always, the show will feature vintage Willys Jeep vehicles, a large swap meet area where you can find a variety of new old stock and good used parts to help you restore your Jeep and keep it original and on the road for years to come.

    Registration for the event is just $15 if you bring a vehicle, $5 if you don't. The $15 covers every Jeep you bring.

    Friday and Saturday we will have special technical presentations taking place under the big top.

    Friday: Sal Walter from Vintage Jeeper demonstrating how to perform a valve job on a L-Head engine.

    Saturday: Joe DeYoung of Mad City Manufacturing will show how to perform a steering alignment on a CJ-2A.

    Two exciting new events are being added to the show this year...

    We are dedicating this year's Willys Reunion to showcasing what these vehicles were made for with Paul Churella (#drivethemjeeps) and his Naval MB, the "Admiral", as special guests.

    Leave the trailer home this year and make it an adventure!

    We will have a rally-style poker run and treasure hunt throughout the weekend. The road course will be approximately 50 miles and can be completed solo or in a guided convoy format with participants earning raffle tickets and sponsor door prizes for driving your Willys, helping out others with parts, labor, and a few other sponsor surprises to come. Staff will offer breakdown assistance and have a truck & trailer at the ready before, during , and after the show.

    The second new feature is a Farm Jeep Playground where you can demonstrate any specialized Jeep equipment you bring. There will be a marked area in the south end of the show field where this will take place. Ground contact implements are welcome to include digging. Our long time friend Dave Groh will supervise this feature. Be sure to tell your friends to bring Farm Jeep Equipment!

    As always, our Friday night picnic & Music will be held on site and is free for all who registered for the show.

    Lunch Saturday will be available for purchase on site again.

    Dinner Tickets for Saturday evening ($25 ea) will again be under the big top, Picnic Style, with the same folks as last year - The Traveling Smoker of Sean Wagler and will include the main entree, sides, soft drinks and deserts, so be prepared with lawn chairs and eating out doors with Live Music during dinner.

    The 50/50, raffle and door prize drawings will also take place under the big-top tent.

    This does sound very cool. Bob3b has been promoting this event since 2015. If someone goes, some pictures would be awesome. It looks like a large event.
