Have you ever wondered if there was somewhere you could go just to look, observe, go ga-ga over some of the gorgeous trucks you see while out on the road? Well, there is…below you will find a 2023 Truck Show Schedule to help you know when and where some of these beauties might be “showing” off. 

Truck Shows are all around the country most months out of the year. You can get to a Truck Show from just about anywhere you might be driving. Stop and see the wonderful custom big rigs. Your truck could be a part of the dream too!

There are some shows that have specific focuses on antique, old school vintage models, and custom classic semis. There are shows that are strictly competition and there are the no competition shows. Some shows are held in conjunction with conventions and organization which makes for great training tools being offered as well. If you are into smaller Truck Shows, they are out there too. Many shows are held at fairgrounds, but some cities close their main streets to parking and traffic and line up the trucks. Wherever they are, they are set up so that the awesome trucks can definitely be seen.

Waupun-Truck-Show-Kim-TrophyIf you have never been to a Truck Show you really need to add that to your New Year’s Resolution this year. They have so much taking place. Of course every show is different, and you can check with the shows you are interested in going to find out if they are offering what you are looking to see. There are trophies, plaques, cash awards at a lot of the shows. Most shows have light shows, games, food, vendors, swap meets, and musical entertainment. Some shows have truck drag racing, auctions (silent and/or live), truck pulls, carnivals, VIP Dinners, fireworks, and parades. You will love the parades! At the end of the show, they usually have a parade going around the coliseum, downtown, or even across the Mackinac Bridge. Hundreds of trucks with all their beautiful lights on is truly a sight you don’t want to miss.

Having so many Truck Shows to choose from, you will find the ones that best fit your schedule, your runs, and your family ideals. We have heard time and again about certain Truck Shows that people come back year after year to because they feel like kindred spirits. It is like a family reunion. They love seeing old friends and making new ones. It is a great place to bring all your friends and relatives, because it truly is a family affair. What a wonderful way for the public to get to know truck drivers, their loved ones, and the great things about the Trucking Industry. Many of these shows donate some, or all, of their proceeds to different Charities.
