 SHOW AND SHINE

What’s new for 2023?

We have big plans in store to celebrate the 11th Annual Great Smoky Mountain Jeep Club Invasion!! In fact, we’re expanding outside vendor booth space yet again due to a huge demand for new vendors!! The S&S will continue to be in the new parking lot across from the LeConte Center (see map), with space to showcase over 300 awesome Jeeps! You will have an admission tent exclusively for you to purchase additional armbands, (cash only, credit available inside) also a convenient & safe walk bridge to the LeConte Center!! NEW for 2023, the outside vendor area will move to the upper lot next to the S&S competition area!!

Choose either a standard Show & Shine space or a Show & Shine Tailgate Experience! Both options include guaranteed hassle-free parking on all days of the event!! Tailgate Experience spaces and standard Show & Shine spaces are not side-by-side. Tents and canopies are only allowed in Tailgate spaces. No advertising, promoting, or selling allowed. No loud or offensive music. 1st place winners in each category and best in show are exempt from competition the following year, but may still register for Show and Shine and be on display in the Winner’s Circle. Judging will be held between 10am-1pm daily, must be present to win.  Awards will be given out daily at 1:30pm.
