The World's Largest Truckstops


Celebration dedicated to America’s Truckers was a hit.

WALCOTT, IOWA —   The World’s Largest Truckstop celebrated America’s truckers last week with an estimated 46,654 drivers, their families, and local residents in attendance during the 44th  Walcott Truckers Jamboree.  Visitors came from almost 30 different states and two Canadian Provinces to display their trucks; drivers from Arizona, Alabama, North Carolina, and Canada traveled the farthest.

The Walcott Truckers Jamboree has been celebrating truckers, “rain or shine”, since 1979.  This year was no different – with only a little rain delay on Friday. “The Walcott Truckers Jamboree celebrates professional drivers and the important work they do for America”, says Heather DeBaillie, Vice President of Marketing.  “We love seeing everyone come together, make new friends and join in the fun.  The trucking community is amazing. From truckers to our vendor and sponsor partners to our staff who help execute this event; we want to say ‘thank you’ for making this event possible for everyone to enjoy.”

During the three days, guests enjoyed over 150 exhibits; a Super Truck Beauty Contest with 108 registered contestants; a fantastic antique truck display with over 100 vehicles; delicious Iowa pork chop cookout; Trucker Olympics; a Pet Contest and free, live concerts.  Concerts were courtesy of Mobil Delvac, Freightliner Run Smart Trucks and CAT Scale.  Both Thursday night and Friday night included fireworks displays, a truck light show and plenty of fun for the whole family!

Iowa 80 Trucking Museum also celebrated the 100th birthday of its 1923 Mack AB. The celebration included birthday cake, refreshments, and balloons.

Mark your calendars! Next year’s Walcott Truckers Jamboree will be held July 11th-13th, 2024.
