Are you a lover of all things Jeep? Join Bays Mountain Park for its first-ever Jeep Fest on June 19, celebrating this iconic all-terrain vehicle that’s perfect for adventuring. This event is hosted by Leadership Kingsport as one of its Community Impact Projects.

“With Bays Mountain celebrating 50 years this year, we wanted to help with the celebration by creating events for everyone to enjoy,“ said Vanessa Bennett, Kingsport Chamber of Commerce Executive Director of Operations & Talent Development and Leadership Kingsport coordinator. “The team—Sheriff Jeff Cassidy, Aiesha Edwards, Terry Hughes and Aimee Light—worked together to create Jeep Fest. We’re excited to bring this iconic sport utility vehicle to Bays Mountain.”
