The Jeep Invasion will be held August 24th and 25th, 2018, at The LeConte Convention Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We have over 100 vendors participating in our event, filling both the interior of The LeConte Center itself and much of the surrounding parking lot.
We have an excellent lineup of vendors participating this year. Want to see who is coming? Check them out.
Stay up to date with us! Check us out on Social Media.
We are holding a Show and Shine competition on both days of the event. We have a third party judging participants in five categories; additionally, we are selecting our own Top 5 Picks on each day. Attendees will also vote on the winner of a People's Choice Award on each day of the event.
We are offering early registration for interested Jeepers. Those who pre-register by July 1st will also be entered into a prize drawing: we are giving out five $100 cash prizes on both Friday and Saturday.
Registration for this event is closed.
We are very proud to sponsor Smoky Mountain Service Dogs, a charitable organization which provides service animals to veterans. We conduct a charity drawing on their behalf, giving attendees a chance to win an amazing range of items generously donated by our vendors.
We expect to have tens of thousands of dollars worth of donated items in our charitable drawing. Last year, we raised $25,000 from our charity drawing for the Service Dogs! Click "Learn More" to read more about the wonderful service this charity performs for our veterans.
We are throwing a kickoff party at The Hard Rock Cafe in Pigeon Forge on Thursday, August 23rd.

We are so excited to announce another Jeep ride happening as part of the Invasion on the night of Friday, August 24! If this is your first time visiting Tennessee, this is a must-see!
The trail consists of a paved road and gravel that runs alongside the Middle Prong of Little River, with its mossy rocks, gorgeous cascades, and waterfalls. Around every turn is a great wooded view of the river with hundreds of great places to take pictures. You never know what kinds of critters will greet you! At the end of the road is a hiking trail that leads to amazing views of cascading streams for those wishing to explore.
NO RESERVATIONS NEEDED. JUST SHOW UP!
We will meet at 6:30 PM AND LEAVE AT 7:00 PM sharp from the Sugarlands Visitor Center located just outside of Gatlinburg in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Facebook Event Page.
