Jeff Kinney, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Big Shot Drive-Thru Tour

This November, the one-and-only Jeff Kinney will be visiting Montlcair to celebrate his new book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Big Shot. This drive-thru sports-themed party will be held at the Montclair High School Freshman Building Parking Lot (on North Fullerton just north of Chestnut Ave).

In the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Drive-Thru Party, families will drive through sports-themed interactive vignettes, followed by the final moment when Kinney will personally deliver children their signed copy of
Big Shot.

Purchase Tickets Here


Customers must purchase a ticket to attend. There are two ticket types, a Big Shot only ticket which includes one signed copy of Big Shot and admission for one car, and a Big Shot and Spooky Stories bundle which includes signed copies of Big Shot and Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories and admission for one car. Your order-confirmation serves as your ticket. Please print out the order-confirmation or have it available on your phone when you arrive during check-in.

In order to make the event as seamless as possible, we are offering four different time-slots for ticket-holders: 1:00pm, 1:30pm, 2:00pm, and 2:30pm. Please arrive as close to your time-slot as possible.


Grab the whole family and Wimpify your car so it’s ready to roll through The Big Shot Drive-Thru! Decorations and signs are highly encouraged. The family with the best-decorated car will win a boxed set of Awesome Friendly books.


Jeff is happy to take socially distanced photos with fans. A staffer will take photos of each family with Jeff. During the photo, families must remain inside their car and Jeff will remain outside. The photos will be available for download. Details on how to download the photos will be provided on a bookmark to each customer at check-in.


There will be an opportunity to purchase additional signed copies of BIG SHOT plus all books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series at our Wimpy Kid pop-up table. All of these books will be signed by Jeff Kinney, and will be available after you check-in to the event.  All books will be pre-signed. Due to health restrictions, there will be no personalization at this event, and no books signed
from home.
