Come join us for the 2nd annual Jeep and 4X4 Fest Military edition.

This year is going to be bigger and better. Huge vender area, food vendors, 4 bands playing throughout the day, show and shine area, entertainment for both the adults and kids. The progressive obstacle coarse is going to be bigger with some unique obstacles to challenge you whether you have a stock or built rig.

Cost at the gate is $5 per person age 16 and under are free. Entry into the show and shine or the obstacle coarse is $20 or $30 to do both. What a great way to spend a great day with minimal cost and give back to our veterans while doing it.

100% of all money collected will be split between 2 charities. 80% goes to Habitat for Humanity Veterans Build and 20% goes to Team Rubicon. All donations are tax deductable.

So come join us at the Hudsonville Fair Grounds June 24th. Gates open at 9AM.


Vendor spots are available. Message me for more information. Or check out the website or facebook page.

All volunteers will also need to show up Thursday June 22nd at 6:30pm at the Hudsonville Fair Grounds for your assignments and instruction.

I have 50/50 tickets for sale.

The price is $5 each.

You do not have to be present to win.

The potential jackpot is.


If all tickets are sold.

Tickets will be sold up to the time of the draw or when all tickets are sold.

Which ever comes first.

If you would like some tickets send me a message or stop by K & M Dodge Ram parts department and ask to see me.

Tell all your friends, relatives, coworkers and or enemies.

Lets make these tickets sell out.

50% of the money collected from the ticket sales goes to the owner of the winning ticket.

The other 50% will be added to the total to be donated to the two Veterans charities.

20% to Team Rubicon 80% to Habitat for humanity Veterans Build.

The drawing will be held on the main stage at the West Michigan Jeep & 4X4 Fest June 24th 2017 6:30pm.

Concrete for obstacle course arrived Tuesday.

The crew is out there today building the coarse and should be done by the end of the day.

Thursday the event planners will be testing the coarse and tweaking as necessary as well as meeting with volunteers to hand out assignments and go over their responsibilities.

We still are in need of about 15 volunteers so show up Thursday June 22nd at 6:30pm and we will put you to work.

Friday the vendors start coming in.

First thing in the morning Friday the event planners will be interviewed again on Fox17 and giving the anchors & camera people rides on the coarse.

Saturday is the big day.

Well we did better than anticipated. Our goal was to double what we raised last year. We more than doubled at just over $40k. There were about 2300 people. Rich Santose won the 50/50. The total sales for the 50/50 was $5000 so Rich collected $2500 and $2500 went into the pot for the vets. We sold 110 rides at $10 each and think we could have sold more if we didn't have to shut it down so the excavating crew could start tearing the track down. There were 127 rigs on the coarse with 130 passengers not including the rigs we used to give rides to dignitaries and people who paid for rides. A huge thank you goes out to all the volunteers, sponsors, organizers and most of all the people who spent their hard earned money to support our Veterans. Keep an eye out for next year. We are already in the planning stages. The date is June 23rd 2018. Keep an eye on our facebook page for details on how to sponsor, volunteer or get on the planning committee.
