Summer is in full swing, and that means it’s the perfect time to get out and have some fun in the sun. Add the Ford Bronco to your summer plans, and your days will be even more memorable. The Bronco Nation team loves a good event that lets us hang with members from all over the place, and this July, the calendar is full of great options. From one day off-roading meetups to weekends full of fun, there is something for everyone.
Check out the list below for July events to see if there’s a Bronco event near you … or one worth taking a summer road trip! Click on each event for more details and/or register to attend. Remember to check the calendar often, as members are always adding local events to the list, and we’ll continue to post Bronco Nation events to the calendar as they are confirmed.
July 6-9: Bronco Super Celebration Wisconsin
BN Staff Attending
It’s the inaugural year for this event, and Bronco Driver Magazine expects a fun time with Bronco drives and summertime adventure at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Judging by the enjoyment the other Super Celebrations bring, we can guess attending this Midwest iteration will be time well spent for a Bronco fan. Learn more.
July 8-10: Bronco Basecamp at Overland Expo PNW
BN Staff Attending
Overland Expo is the premier overlanding event series in the world — no other event offers the scope of classes taught by the world’s leading experts alongside a professional-level trade show that brings together all the camping and vehicle and motorcycle equipment and services you need to Get Outfitted. Get Trained. Get Inspired. Get Going. Come join the Bronco Nation at our next Basecamp and on trail excursions that will give you an appreciation for the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, including:
- July 9 & 10 — Sisters High Country Tour
We’ll head to the top of McKenzie Pass to check out the Dee Wright Observatory together, then make our way down to explore Deschutes National Forest. From there, we’ll stock up at the Camp Sherman store and check out the Wizard Falls State Fish Hatchery before arriving at our final destination: the town of Sisters, Oregon.
- July 9 & 10 — Off-Roading at Cline Buttes OHV Area
Cline Buttes includes easy-to-difficult trails and play areas featuring technical rock crawling and obstacles. Trail 34 is the most technical trail and should put fully spec’d Broncos through their paces. Portions of the park offer great views of the Sisters range.
July 9: Camp Grayling MI/MI Bronco Club Trail Ride
We will be exploring the trails in and around Camp Grayling — the largest Army Reserve base in the United States. On top of some interesting trails and scenery, you might get to see a few Blackhawks, A-10s or Apaches cruising overhead!
July 16: Perspiration Point View Moody Truck Trail
This is a short scenic drive in Palmdale, California. We’ll be starting on BP & L Road in Acton, and then hitting Moody Truck Trail for a bit of bumpy fun ending at Messenger Flats — where there are picnic tables, etc. and we can have lunch. It’s a short run, and not very difficult at all, but the views are amazing.
July 16: Inland Northwest Bronco RoundUp
All years and all types of Broncos welcome to meet up at the Dunes in Moses Lake, WA.
July 22-23: TOMS OFFROAD Rock & Roll
It’s the premier early Bronco event of the year! The 2022 TOMS OFFROAD Rock & Roll will be held this year at the Jackson County Fairgrounds in Central Point, Oregon. There will be group drives, a drive-in movie, Bronco show & shine, live music, food trucks, beer garden, and more! Learn more and register today.
July 25-31: EAA AirVenture OshKosh
Visit the world’s largest fly-in event, welcoming more than 10,000 aircraft each year, and see the latest innovations and aircraft from around the world. Ford will be there at the event. Last year, they hosted Bronco ride-alongs and honored the Women Airforce Service Pilots with a specially designed, one-off version of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E.
Keep an eye on the events page and forums for the most up-to-date information about where and when the Nation will be gathering. And if you hear of an event not on the calendar or want to plan your own, share it with us! Bronco Nation members can use the calendar to post trail rides and get-togethers any time. Hope to see you soon.
