The Great Willys Picnic, Show and Swap Meet
Sunday June 13, 2021
at the Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern Railroad
located in Kempton, Pennsylvania

The Willys Picnic will be in compliance with all regulations in effect on June 13th. Be prepared for possible changes from past events.

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 
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 

See the website for any updates

I sure hope this can be pulled off this year.
This is my favorite group of folks & one of the best annual gatherings out there. Even if I need to sit in a plastic bubble I am up for it!

Hey Seth,
The Rhubarb is growing nicely!

I see some Strawberry/Rhubarb Pies in our future if I am still invited!

Is Rick of oldjeepcarbs going to attend this year?

SOOO you will sit in the field across from the Rail Road station by yourself if it is canceled. WOW that is a WILLYS enthusiast for sure!

I am planning on being there but if canceled I would have to think about it.
I do think Aaron & I might get board with our conversation after a bit if we're the only ones there!

Dust off?  as in wash off the dust from last weekend's trail rides?  LOL

Unfortunately,  I will miss this year's picnic. :-(   . .   June 13 this year will be our 40th Wedding Anniversary.   The Great Willys Picnic has always been untimely for me, due to proximity to anniversary date, but this year is the most unfortunate timing yet.

What? Seems the Willie’s picnic would be the best day to spend with your special lady.... my wife is pretty chill, as she doesn’t make a big deal about anything unless it’s a mile stone and that’s pretty much just an extra atta boy. Lmao 
Congrats on your 40 year achievement!

Hey Ron,
Congrats on your 40th Wedding Anniversary! I sure was hoping to see you at "The Picnic" because I missed the Spring reunion this year, however we must honor our better half's wishes on these big days. Maybe I'll get to see you next year.

This little treasure will be available at "The PICNIC" this year.





Can't wait to hang with all the Great WILLYS Folks.
