The outbreak of Covid-19 has come with various necessary cancellations. The Government, the World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have all advised social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus, which has resulted in the cancellation and postponement of countless public gatherings like automotive events — including Jeep events.
At this confusing, stressful, and unsettling time, it is hard to keep track of what is open, what is closed, what is still happening, and what is being monitored. As leaders in the Jeep world, we’ve consolidated some information outlining the state of different Jeep events that were or still are scheduled over the next couple of months.
