The Great Willys Picnic
Show and Swap Meet

June 8, 2014 from 9 am - 4 pm at the Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern Railroad
located in Kempton, Pennsylvania

The 2014 Great Willys Picnic, Show and Swap was a huge success! It was the event's 15th anniversary and the weather was perfect - sun, blue sky, and a slight breeze. We had 67 vehicles sign in for the show, plus a few more that did not come into the show field. The swap meet area was full of rare Willys accessories and parts. There were fantastic door prizes for those people who brought the vehicles, 15th Anniversary Willys Picnic T-shirts, a 50/50 drawing and raffle prizes. Hundreds of Willys' enthusiasts were present too.

The Willys Picnic was on the grounds of the Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern Railroad again this year. We hope everyone was able to take the train ride through the countryside. Also onsite is the Schuykill & Lehigh Model Railroad Club's HO model train display.

Thanks again to Seth King and family for making everything happen. He puts in a lot of time that enabled this event to grow into what it is today.

Also a great big thank you to all our sponsors.

Walck's 4WD
Carl (and family) and Daniel were there answering questions all day long and brought baseball caps and pens for everyone. They also contributed a handful of $25.00 gift certificates for door prizes. Check out Walck's on the web for all your Willys parts.

JB's Jeeps donated the very cool dash plaques again this year. JB also had his rare Perkins diesel CJ-5 wrecker in the show.

The East Coast Willys Association made a generous donation to the Picnic and also a door prize tool bag full of stuff including a laser cut Jeep grill key chain and a T-shirt. Check out the laser cut key chains and parts at

The very popular Holy Toledo! calendars with unique Willys photos and historical facts for each month were door prizes.

Quadratec provided those cool Jerry-can tool boxes for the raffles.

In 2015 The Willys Picnic will be on June 14th. Check back later for more information.
