The Great Willys Picnic, Show and Swap Meet
Sunday, June 9, 2019 from 9 am - 4 pm at the Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern Railroad
located in Kempton, Pennsylvania

It's time to plan for the 20th annual Great Willys Picnic, Car Show and Swap Meet. All vehicles are welcome: stock, modified, projects, CJs, Wagons, Trucks, Jeepsters, Military, Cars and even GPWs! Every pre-1970 Willys vehicle is eligible to win door prizes. This show has grown into the largest Northeast Willys event. 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 because at 3:00 PM the door prize winners are announced and awarded. 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 http://www.kemptontrain.com/directions/

See the website for any updates http://www.cj3a.info/picnic

I am ready for Spring and "The Great WILLYS Picnic once again.
The WILLYS folks that put on and attend this event are the best. I sure look forward to the 20TH year there. BIG DOINS with fire works, a dunking booth & rhubarb pie I suppose!

Jeff,
  Thanks for the info.  I have the roll bar and seat belts.  I need to install tow points on the front and the back.
