Jimny enthusiasts from all corners of the Philippines flocked to the Crystal Beach Resort in Zambales last April 21-23 for the highly anticipated JIMNYFEST 2023. Presented by THE JIMNY HUB, the largest gathering of Jimny owners and enthusiasts in the country had over 110 Jimnys and 250 participants in attendance, including guests who traveled from as far as Davao, Tuguegarao, Bicol, Baguio, and La Union.
The event kicked off with an exciting adventure trail ride to Lake Mapanuepe, which showcased the stunning foothills of Mount Pinatubo and gave participants the opportunity to test their Jimnys on challenging terrain. A picnic lunch was then held before the convoy headed to Zambales for a two-night camping trip.
JIMNYFEST 2023 was more than just a social gathering of Jimny enthusiasts; it was also a platform for showcasing the latest upgrades and products for Suzuki Jimnys. The Jimny Hub, known for its commitment to providing high-quality brands and performance upgrades, launched two new brands: Showa Garage, a premium Japanese aftermarket parts brand, and Rainbow Auto, which specializes in custom performance parts for Jimnys. In addition, the flagship brand of The Jimny Hub, Apio Japan, showcased its latest and greatest Jimny upgrades with a supercharged Apio model built on display.
The event also featured a range of impressive sponsor booths, including those from Rugged Rigs, ARB Accessories, Bradley Wheels, Front Runner, Coleman, Overland Kings, SR Performance, Motul, THOR, Waterport, Thought Dog, CTEK, Powerhouse, Mother’s, and Corkcicle.
JIMNYFEST 2023 was not just for car enthusiasts but also for families and friends who wanted to enjoy a beach getaway. The event had a wide range of activities for all ages, from relay games to tug of war to beach volleyball and many more. Guests were also delighted with the abundance of prizes, raffle giveaways, and other freebies.
The night concluded with a stunning fireworks display that left guests in awe. “JIMNYFEST has always been about COMMUNITY,” said The Jimny Hub CEO JM Ong. “Our goal is to bring together people who want to share their common passion. We are humbled to witness this big event come to life and grateful to those who have supported us. We hope to see everyone again next year!”
