It’s the definition of “Go big or stay home”...

...30 acres, close to 400 trucks, where owners and onlookers of all ages congregate in a celebration of both the beauty, and the beast. Beauty in the chromed to-the-nines, body-painted art-on-wheels, pristinely cleaned, polished, and dusted for the Show and Shine. And the beast, in the revving of enhanced engines in the modified truck and tractor pull—hauling a dead weight from a standing start until the wheels spin and all forward motion stops. As one volunteer put it, “It’s like drag racing on dirt.”
 

It’s North America’s largest truck show, due in part to the efforts of hundreds of volunteers. Originally intended only as a one-time event to raise funds, the Fergus Truck Show is now in its 29th year with over $500,000 given back to the community.

There’s always great entertainment that includes a bit of everything for everyone: country and rock-country, tribute acts and straight-ahead rock with local bands or headliners like Emerson Drive. There’s a Saturday night beef barbecue followed by a light show that has nothing to do with fireworks and everything to do with decked-out, illuminated chrome on wheels. With a pancake and sausage, true trucker-style breakfast on Sunday, it’s three July days of muscle-flexin’, truck-struttin’, food and music-lovin’ fun for kids of every age. You have never seen trucks like this.
