Waupun Truck-N-Show

Price: Free Admission!

Visitors may look at the beautiful trucks up close and look inside the trucks. Enjoy FREE entertainment from 8:00 pm - 12:00 am on both Friday and Saturday nights. Friday night’s band is Star Six Nine - Rock? Pop? Country?- you never know what you might hear. Saturday night’s band is The Presidents, providing a high-energy show with an eclectic mix of classic to contemporary party rock songs.

A shuttle service takes spectators from designated parking areas to the festival grounds. Two parades are held on Main Street. A Friday night parade at about 9:00 pm. The City of Waupun turns off all of the street lights on Main Street so the trucks can display their amazing lights! The Saturday parade at 3:00 pm enables spectators to see the beautiful murals and other works of art on each truck.

The technology and changes that have occurred in the big trucks are amazing! We feature all sizes of trucks from big rigs to straight trucks to proud owners of their pickups. Enjoy good food and drinks, lots of great music, and meet many amazing truck drivers! Enjoy FREE entertainment on both Friday and Saturday nights. 

The Waupun Truck-n-Show isn't just about trucks. While trucks are crammed in every corner of the Truck-n-Show grounds, there's just enough space left for everyone to relax and enjoy the bands, food stands, exhibits, and beverages offered throughout the weekend.
