The Truckers Jamboree is hosted every year at the Iowa 80 Truckstop, I-80 Exit 284, Walcott, Iowa. Since it’s inception in 1979, the Truckers Jamboree has been celebrating America’s Truckers. This event is a great place to celebrate and learn about trucking and those big rigs. It’s our way of saying thank you to the millions of truck drivers that deliver the goods we consume, whether it’s groceries, gas, clothes or cars — you can bet it was delivered by a truck.
This year the Freedom Drivers Project will be on display and available for tours. Make sure to stop by!

After a busy day experiencing Shell Rotella SuperRigs’ hospitality and watching the awesome trucks being judged at the Joplin Convention & Trade Center, join us as the party moves to Downtown Joplin. Many of the SuperRigs’ competitors will travel to historic downtown Joplin where they will stage their rigs, turn on their lights and pump up the music; partying like only truckers can.
The Giants of Joplin will bring the energy to convert the downtown streets into a massive street party. This is the time where you can see the rigs up close and personal and talk to the creators of these magnificent machines. Our event will take over downtown from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Adding to the ambience, we will be holding our “Best Lights” competition during the street party.
Plus, you’ll be given a unique opportunity to dine in many of the local restaurants and bars located on Main Street – watching all the action right out on the street. But that’s not all -- you are also invited to join us for a free concert and fireworks display that will take place right in the middle of it all! It’s going to be a GIANT of a time that you won’t want to miss!
