Truckfest has been wowing the crowds for more than 30 years now, in that time so many changes with road haulage and logistics have taken place that the industry has seen the demise of so many events. Truckfest has been the one constant for operators and drivers year on year, increasing in popularity. Truckfest has provided that all-important meeting place for all sectors of the industry as well as a viable alternative to make contact with both principles and drivers alike in a relaxed atmosphere.
Truckfest Peterborough continues to reign as our flagship trucking event of the year. 2016 saw the largest Truckfest event yet at the East of England Showground with over 2000 trucks in attendance and superb manufacturing stands from the likes of Mercedes, DAF, Renault, Volvo, Iveco and Scania.
After 26 great years 2013 saw the expansion of the former Truckfest South West. The event relocated to a more central location at the three counties showground, Malvern. The showground provides a picturesque backdrop of the Malvern Hills and superb on site facilities, to offer hauliers and drivers from the South West, Midlands and Wales their very own Truckfest.
The great annual jamboree for Scotland’s hard working Road Haulage Industry. Truckfest provides an opportunity for drivers and their families to relax and show off the vibrant liveries for which Scotland is justly famous, and the Royal Highland Showground is the perfect place to parade the colours.
Where it all began! Truckfest was born at the Newark and Notts Showground in 1983. The event returned to the very same place in 2011 to pay homage to the very early Truckfests and to celebrate what they have grown into. This event brings together a unique combination of the latest innovation and trucks from yester year, all wrapped up with family entertainment, main arena action and a generous dollop of nostalgia!
Truckfest South East sees a new location which will enable the event to expand as it is sure to do after 2016’s event. Next year will see the Hop Farm exhibition facility playing host to the South East’s very own Truckfest!
After almost 6 years, Truckfest returned too the North West of England in 2015. And the great news is – we are returning to the Cheshire Showground on the corresponding weekend in 2016. Truck North West is there to stay at the Cheshire Showground, with everyone in the North West taking the event to their hearts.
Truckfest is reaching out to the South of England in 2017 and makes its second visit to Newbury Showground at the end of May. Expect great main arena action, hundreds of trucks and trade stands and a great family day out!
Anyone who remembers the early years of Truckfest will recall that Truckfest is no stranger to the Royal Norfolk Showground. We are so pleased to bring the event back to Norwich in 2017 after a successful 2016 show.
For many years Driffield Showground played host to The Yorkshire Trucking Spectacular. Hundreds of trucks of all shapes, sizes and colours filled the showground. Due to popular demand 2017 sees its return! Don’t miss this fantastic family day out
