Our next Jeeps & Java Event of 2019 will be held on Sunday, October 20 at Spruce Grove Tree Farm in Oxford, Pa.

If you haven't heard of Jeeps and Java before, we consider this one of the best mornings each month. A time where you can get together with hundreds of your closest Jeep friends and compare notes, check out different builds, play some games and have a chance at some great raffle prizes. All while enjoying free doughnuts, java and other refreshments. These events are generally held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the first or second Sunday of each month (excluding January and February) .

Join us Sunday, October 20th at our normal Jeeps & Java start time of 9am for all the bells and whistles of a normal Jeeps & Java, along with MUCH, MUCH MORE! Take your Jeep on a leisurely stroll through the "Jeep-Only" Pumpkin Patch trails and find the perfect Pumpkin for all of your decorative Halloween needs. Then, after the regularly scheduled Jeeps & Java raffles, giveaways and Quadratec Geo Can, there is an entire day stuffed full of fun fall festivities.

While you are there, you can also tag your own Christmas tree and come back for November’s Jeeps & Java to cut it down and take home. You can even make a guess on exactly how many Christmas Trees are on the Farm, and get a prize if you guess wisely. Mark your calendar for this Sunday, October 20, and get your Jeep and family ready to kick-off the fall season at the 3rd Annual Spruce Grove Jeep Pumpkin Run - Jeeps & Java event.
