What is the O’DZ Jeep Jam?

jj15 logo smallmilitary families

WHEN: OCTOBER 10TH, 2015 

WHERE: KESSIE JEEP FARM, SPEEDWAY GRAVEL & ALLEN COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS

WHY: BENEFIT FOR MILITARY FAMILIES

So what is Jeep Jam anyway? Jeep Jam is a one day, non-profit event to raise money for our Military and their families and to have fun “Jeepin” while doing so. It is a benefit which gives 100% of all donations directly to Military Families, a program of Associated Churches. The event was a vision created, organized and held by O’Daniel Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Fort Wayne, IN and is now on it’s tenth successful year. With the gracious help of its sponsors and volunteers, Jeep Jam has grown bigger and better than our wildest dreams could ever imagine. Jeep Jam has already provided over $100,000 to our Military and their families and this year we hope to have another successful event. The foundation of this event is based on the idea that our Military soldiers have fought and given so much to preserve our freedom. Now we want to give them something back. We graciously accept monetary donations and if you are interested in volunteering, we would be happy to have your help!

» The Off-Road Jeep Event

KJFlogo_color_smallspeedway gravel

The day begins early with the Jeep only off-road event at Kessie Jeep Farm and Speedway Gravel. There is a parade to both locations, a safety instruction and a blessing of the Jeeps before the off-road fun begins. This year, we have taken feedback from Jeepers and limited the number of Jeeps that can partake in the off-road event to 100. This is to prevent Kessie Jeep Farm from getting too crowded. It is an extremely fun (and muddy) event that lasts until early afternoon. (Check out our photos to see previous years!) Speedway will have everything that we had last year including the huge Rock Garden!

There are two off-road packages for you to choose from:

The VIP Package – This gets you a pass into both Kessie Jeep Farm and Speedway Gravel

The Speedway ONLY package – This gets you a pass ONLY into Speedway Gravel

It’s recommended to go to both locations to enjoy the full experience! Tickets are very limited and usually sell out before the event so make sure to purchase yours fast! The price is per Jeep and a waiver must be signed by you and any of your passengers to participate in the off-road event. Remember, 100% of all proceeds go directly to Military Families.
