Hundreds of Jeep lovers head to the hills every August to celebrate the heritage and spirit of adventure that comes with driving a Jeep. Vendors with gear to customize your Jeep, expos, group drives and more are all part of the Smoky Mountain Jeep Invasion.

Jeep Invasion Of The Smokies

Though the Jeep Invasion has a relatively short history in Pigeon Forge, the Jeeps we know and love today date all the way back to World War II. The first civilian Jeep (called a CJ) became available to the masses in 1945 and the vehicles have been loved since. Jeeps we have known and loved over the years have included the station wagon and truck, iconic Wagoneer, Jeepster, Scrambler, and of course the recognizable Wrangler. You’ll likely see a variety models of Jeeps, old and new, at the Smoky Mountain Jeep Invasion.

The hills of the Smoky Mountains make the perfect backdrop to celebrate the Jeep, as the mountains offer a rugged outdoor adventure any Jeep lover is sure to enjoy. From off road rock crawls to hiking to ziplining, Pigeon Forge offers the adrenaline pumping excitement that perfectly complements the Jeep’s spirit.
