2020 Great Willys Picnic, Show and Swap CANCELED

The Great Willys Picnic, Show and Swap Meet
CANCELED

 at the Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern Railroad
located in Kempton, Pennsylvania

It's time to plan for the 21st annual Great Willys Picnic, Car Show and Swap Meet, the largest Willys event in the Northeast. All vehicles are welcome: stock, modified, projects, CJs, Wagons, Trucks, Jeepsters, Military, Cars and even GPWs! Pre-1970 Willys vehicles are eligible to win door prizes and great Raffles are available for everyone. The Jeep Field is open for showing all more modern Jeeps. There is plenty of space for selling your spare parts in the swap meet area. Bring your Willys memorabilia and interesting parts for show and tell. Be sure to arrive early to have enough time to see all the Jeeps before the door prize winners are announced at 3:00 PM. Bring your own picnic lunch or purchase food at the refreshment stand. This event goes on Rain or Shine.


The Picnic will be held on the grounds of the Wanamaker, Kempton Southern Railroad
http://www.kemptontrain.com
located in the scenic village of Kempton, Pennsylvania. This is a great setting to display our classic Willys vehicles, as well as entertainment for the entire family. Also on-site is the Schuykill & Lehigh Model Railroad Club's HO model train display.


As always The Willys Picnic, Show and Swap is free. Plan to take the optional train ride for a very reasonable fee. Click here for directions to the RR

I don't know, it is too early to make a decision. Give it another month to see how things are going. One month out we will decide yes or no so people will have time to make plans.
