Tri-Community NewsPlus

The annual Willy's Rally brings all varieties of Jeeps and Willys to the Wrightwood. Many come out the the Village to check out the off-roaders and partake in the Chili Cook-off and Salsa Contest that runs concurrently with the Rally.

Don’t miss the 18th Annual Wrightwood Willys Jeep Rally held on October 9, 2021 from 9am-2pm.  Take a walk along Park Drive in Wrightwood and enjoy classic Willys, station wagons, 1940’s Jeeps and Jeepsters, Commanders, Rubicons, CJ’s, Cherokees, newer models and works in progress.  The day concludes with a dirt or paved road convoy through the San Gabriel Mountains. It’s recommended that you bring a jacket, binoculars, food and beverages, a chair and stories to share.

History buffs young and old will enjoy learning the legacy of the Willys Jeep beginning with the role the first Little Willys played in helping the Americans and their Allies win World War II.  Just before the end of the war, Willys Motors began the transition of turning the War Willys into a Civilian Jeep and named it the CJ-2 (Civilian Jeep). Following the war, Willys began marketing the CJ as a Universal Jeep to ranchers, farmers, miners and loggers.  The Jeep quickly became very popular with hunters, fishermen and others who enjoyed getting off road and into the areas less traveled.  The Jeep is considered by some the have become the first American SUV.

No registration or fee is required to show your car.  This is not a car show and the vintage or condition of the vehicle is not important for participation.
