Trucking Events: July Expos, Jamborees, and Contests

July EventsHappy 4th, everybody! It’s a beautiful day to celebrate America with friends and family, and of
course, with some ice cold lemonade, sunshine, and fireworks! But after the fireworks fade away, the fun doesn’t have to. No matter where you’re trucking this month, there are some spectacular events, from sea to shining sea!

Best part-they’re mostly FREE!

Peterbilt 75th Anniversary Tour
Starting our tour on the East coast, The Peterbilt 75th Anniversary Tour rolls into Rush Truck Center of Charlotte, NC, July 14th. Step into the 53 foot, double-expandable trailer, and you’ll get an eye-full of the latest and greatest in trucking innovation. Experience the state-of-the-art Cab and Sleeper Cutaways--maybe sneak in a nap, I won’t tell--or jump on an interactive kiosk to design your own Model 579! Feeling nostalgic? Travel back in time to 1939 with their History Wall, sure to please you antique truck buffs. Peterbilt novices and avid followers alike are bound to experience something new in this hands-on museum on wheels!

Ohio's Expedite Expo
If you’re craving a mixture of entertainment and information, Ohio’s Expedite Expo’s got it! July 25th-26th, mingle with thousands of people from the general public, to owner operators, to fleet owners. When you aren’t networking, pop into one of their 10 helpful Workshops where you’ll learn how to grow your business or even pick up tips for being a healthy trucker. As if that wasn’t enough excitement, you can go “all in” at Casino Night (are you feeling lucky, punk?), enter the Antique Truck Show, and maybe even win THOUSANDS in giveaways! Yes, please!

Iowa80 Truckers Jamboree
Ever competed in a high-stakes game of Steering Wheel Ring Toss? Swing by the 35th annual Iowa 80 Truckers Jamboree and you just might become a Trucker Olympics Gold Medalist! Kicking off July 10th, this three-day event is packed with fun for the whole family. Relax with live music, carnival games, and fireworks. Stroll through the Antique Truck Show while devouring some famous Iowa Pork Chops. Or if you’re feeling feisty, compete in the Trucker Olympics (open to both ladies and gents) and see how far you can pull a semi! Best of all, you can enter your pride and joy in the Truck Beauty Contest. Shine that baby up and prove to your friends once and for all that she really is the best looking gal on the road!

2nd Annual Truck Function in Junction
For the laid-back trucker whose idea of a good time is “no trophies-just cruisin’,” the 2nd Annual Truck Function in Junction is just your speed! They’re looking for trucks of all kinds to gather for a day of trucker talk, a hot meal, and a cruise down “The Strip” of Junction City, OR. You’ll even snag a beauty shot of your big rig, courtesy of Fueled Photography! So stop by July 19th and enjoy a good ole’ coffee break and conversation.

Whether you're on the East Coast or West Coast, ridin' solo or having quality family time, the perfect event is waiting for you! Spend your well-deserved down time soaking up the sun and fun, or amp it up with some friendly competition. Either way, you're bound to have a blast! The ExpressTruckTax Team wishes you a safe, fun-filled 4th! And be sure to tell us about your event experiences! Which ones will you be attending?
