Jeepalooza is a celebration of the iconic & legendary Jeep 4x4 sport utility vehicle. From 65 Jeeps in our first parade 5 years ago, we've grown to be one of the largest Jeep meet ups in Northeast Ohio. Jeepers travel in from Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan, Indiana, and Ontario to enjoy a day with their fellow enthusiasts. Join your fellow Jeeple and register today!
