Jeepin The Coast (JTC) is bringing a wild ride to Mississippi's Gulf Coast from May 31 through June 4. A must-attend event for all Jeep lovers, this annual five-day celebration brings together thousands of people from all over the country. During 2023's JTC celebration, attendees will be able to attend multiple events and "hangouts" spread over 26 miles of gorgeous white-sand beaches. Events and activities are scattered throughout idyllic locations in Long Beach, Gulfport, and Bay St. Louis. Attendees can choose to either stick with the crowd or branch off on their own coastal adventures. Like every JTC in the past, 2023's event will be fun for all ages!
Highlights of Jeepin The Coast 2023
JTC will have a vendor village located at "Jeep Central" at 506 Jeff Davis Avenue in Long Beach, Mississippi. Each day of the event will feature parties, live music, auctions, competitions, and many more high-octane events geared toward car lovers. The first day of the event will welcome attendees with a kick-off party with live entertainment by Aaron Foret.
Day two will be packed with C4AC silent auctions, Jeep raffle tickets, a party at Sully's, a light and sound competition, and an after-party with live entertainment. Wake up early on day three for the opening of vendor village. The rest of the day is filled with a scavenger hunt, poker, a JTC beach crawl, the Show and Shine Jeep Show, a live concert, and fireworks on the beach.
Things don't slow down for day four! While most of the events from days two and three will be carried over, this is the only day to attend the JEEP ONLY PARADE Mardi Gras Style. There's also a full-block party with a concert in the streets. Day five winds things down with a group meeting in Bay St. Louis at Anita's Bar to kick off the drive to the "See Ya Later Sunday" party happening at Coastal Daiquiri in Long Beach.
