The first Walcott Truckers Jamboree only attracted a few hundred people in 1979 and featured a few exhibits, live music, food and a small display of antique trucks. Today, the Walcott Truckers Jamboree attracts approximately 30,000 attendees. Celebrating America’s Truckers is why the Jamboree was founded all those years ago and is still the focus of the event.
