About Us

The Dayton Off Road and Outdoor Expo is presented by Muddy Buddys Jeep Wrangler Club. Muddy Buddys was founded in 2002 by two co-workers who enjoyed wheeling and the outdoors. The club was created with a core focus on safety and family friendly fun. Since 2002 the club has grown by leaps and bounds. We are one of the largest, non-profit, Jeep Wrangler clubs in Ohio. Muddy Buddys hosts two large, annual events each year.

Dayton Off Road and Outdoor Expo

The first Dayton Off Road Expo was held in Dayton, Ohio in January of 2015 at the old Hara Arena. The Expo was chock full of many unknowns. We had just over 15 vendors and a handful of rigs. At the end of the extraordinarily successful weekend, we had a list of "musts" for the second year and even more congratulatory responses from the vendors and attendees. In our second year, we doubled our size and had created expectations by our followers. 

Through events beyond our control and pure serendipity, we were forced to find a new venue, which led us to the Roberts Centre. By this time, we had built a reputation and didn't want to lose what we created over two years of hard work. So the show moved to Wilmington, Ohio and into a beautiful facility but we kept our now recognizable name.

Jeep Jam

Jeep Jam is an event to celebrate legendary Jeep vehicles, as well as safe and responsible off-roading. It is a DRIVING event where we offer Friday Cruise In, multiple Wooded Trails for stock to built, Mud Pits, a Rock Garden, Obstacle Courses, a Kids Area, food trucks and vendors. This is a family friendly event to bring Jeep owners and enthusiasts together to celebrate the Jeep hobby and sport. Leary on taking your Jeep on the trails? Feel free to jump in with a guide to get a taste of what to expect.
