Bold Rock Cidery - Nellysford

We are excited to team up with Bold Rock Hard Cider to bring you an event just for Jeep® lovers! The 13th annual Go Topless Day will be on Saturday May 16, 2020. Go Topless Day is a worldwide tradition for the Jeep community to celebrate the start of spring by taking off their Jeep tops.

Go Topless Day held over 240 worldwide Jeep events in 2019, which were held in 45 US states and 11 countries. Events ranged from 4x4 and OHV trail cleanups, to Jeep parades and Show & Shines. In addition to celebrating the history, activities and sense of community that accompany these gatherings, these events were able to raise $150,000 for various local organizations.


We will be holding a Show & Shine event in the meadow at Bold Rock Cidery, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Nelson Kid Care. Check out the event details below, and registration to open soon!
