2019 OBX Jeep Jam
by Jessie S.
If you love your Jeep, this event was tailored for you! Join other proud Jeep owners from all over the East Coast at the 2019 OBX Jeep Jam! Presented by KDH Outer Banks Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in partnership with Goin’ Goastal Jeep Club, this exciting event is fun for all ages! Check out awesome Jeeps, get to know other Jeep owners, and celebrate all things Jeep related while knowing that all the funds raised by this event go to a great cause! OBX GOFAR is a non-profit organization promoting a healthy lifestyle in kids by developing a comprehensive fitness program designed to teach children of all abilities about health including fitness, nutrition and character building while providing kids in the program the chance to show off their skills in a fun run and 5k race.
This three-day event starts with an exciting Pirate Party Meet-n-Greet at Pirate’s Cove Marina (be sure to come out in your best pirate gear!) and finishes with a Jeep convoy off-road tour of the Carova Beach 4x4 area of Corolla. The main event, however, is held at the Soundside Event Site in Nags Head on Saturday, September 28th 2019. Enjoy live music, an obstacle course race for the kids, cash and item raffles, Jeep Show-n-Shine Contest, an awards ceremony and more! Last year’s Jam had over 100 Jeeps on site and over 800 attendees! Get your tickets now and make sure you're one of them!
Where To Stay
If you're interested in all three days of activities, you can really stay anywhere along the Outer Banks! For those not interested in the Sunday Convoy in Corolla, booking a Nags Head Rental may be your best option. Not only will you be close to both the Pirate Party Meet-n-Greet but you'll also be close to the Soundside Event Site so you won't have to travel far to enjoy the festivities. Plus, Nags Head is the most developed area of the OBX meaning there are dozens of shopping and dining options as well as several recreational activities to partake in when you're not at the festival! Don't have the vacation days to take off the whole week? No problem! Seaside Vacations has plenty of Any Day Stays rentals that only require a minimum of 3 nights booked! From 2-bedroom condos to large oceanfront homes fit for the whole family, we've got you covered!
