The 2021 Wrightwood Willy's Jeep Rally

Don’t miss the 20th Annual Wrightwood Willys Jeep Rally on October 14, 2023, from 9 am-2 pm. Take a walk along Park Drive in Wrightwood and enjoy classic Willys, station wagons, 1940s Jeeps and Jeepsters, Commanders, Rubicons, CJs, Cherokees, newer models, and works in progress. Visit with the Jeep owners, who will love to share their stories. 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 popular with hunters, fishermen, and others who enjoyed getting off-road and into less traveled areas. Some consider the Jeep to have become the first American SUV.

No registration or fee is required to show your vehicle. Participants should arrive before 8:30 a.m. and park along Park Drive. This is not a car show, and the vintage or condition of the vehicle is not essential for participation. While at the Jeep Rally, walk over to the Wrightwood Community Building and check out the Chili Cook-off and festivities.
