Jeep the Mac

April 27, 2019 all-day

Drive a Jeep? Show your Jeep pride in a celebration that crosses Michigan’s most iconic landmark – The Mackinac Bridge. A welcome party, trails to ride, special luncheon, prizes and more await participants.

Don’t own a Jeep? Come anyway because these special events always turn all of St. Ignace into a huge festival. Free shuttle service provided.


Don’t miss this opportunity to join in the excitement
Whether you watch the Jeeps as the parade crosses the bridge, or set up your lawn chair on State Street, you will have a front seat on all the action. The variety of Jeeps is amazing – old and new, big and small and all the colors of the rainbow.
