Truck shows are THE place to see those custom big rigs you’ve been dreaming of.
The shiny, sleek and tricked out 18 wheelers you’ll see at these trucking events, will make your heart pound.
Long, lean, low and way cool.
Many shows for big trucks often have a specific focus.
Some are old school vintage models, antique and classic semi truck models are definitely the most popular.
We personally like the low key events and shows that focus on the fun of getting together with other truck owners, to give their rigs a good old fashioned clean up and ‘spit and polish’, and show off their rides.
The no competition shows are the best.
The shows and events for trucks, are not just about custom trucks.
They are also for educating the public, and giving them a better, more in-depth understanding about the trucking industry.
A custom truck show will highlight the best of the industry, so in a way, it helps the public see there are good things about trucking.
These shows are just plain loads of fun too. There’s the opportunity to meet other truckers, make new friends and get a chance for a little socializing with old friends, too.
It doesn’t matter if you love Peterbilts, Western Stars, Macks, or if a Kenworth turns your crank, there’s lots of these cool trucks to see at a truck show.
Below, you’ll find just some of the fantastic events held around the country, along with the dates of upcoming shows.
We’ll add your show and details.
