TOLEDO (WTVG) – Officials with the Toledo Jeep Fest have announced the 2020 event will be canceled due to concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a statement released to 13abc, the Board of Directors unanimously decided to cancel the event, scheduled for August 7-9 in and around downtown Toledo.

“We’ve been tracking actions by the Ohio Governor, along with many other Federal and State Leaders, and they are clearly taking precautionary measures, cancelling events and gatherings of over certain numbers of attendees to keep the public safe,” the statement said in part.

Officials said Toledo Jeep Fest will return in 2021 to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Jeep in Toledo.
