The Big Rig Truck Shows (formerly the Eau Claire Big Rig Truck Show) has a NEW name and location for 2017!  We have grown beyond what CVTC could offer and needed to find a new venue with more area.

The Northern WI State Fair Grounds in Chippewa Falls, WI, about 9 miles north from our 2016 location, will be an ideal area (encompassing 53 acres) that will allow us to grow the event for years to come. In addition to having indoor buildings for exhibitors/vendors, we also have more parking for show trucks, vendors and exhibitors. See aerial photo below.

 In addition to the beautiful working show trucks from the local area, around the USA and Canada, we are proud to announce we will have 6 Monster Trucks at the show! Performances on Friday and Saturday night, so save the dates August 18, 19, 20th 2017. Hope to see you all at the Big Rig Truck Shows!

We arrived here in Florida yesterday and the photo you took at your Big Rig Show was here.  Thank you a bunch! We’ve only been coming to your show for a couple of years, but hope to attend many more. You really do a great job!

Dale @ D&D Trucking

Glen Rice
This is the truck show to see, period! This is truly a family event. A little something for everyone. Very well run and the light show and movie Friday night are great fun. The parade through town Saturday night is amazing to witness as the towns people really come out to watch! They are very enthusiastic to say the least!

Pat Adams-Heacox
Always have a good time!! The parade is the best!!

Benjamin J. Schill
My fiance and I loved the event we were there pretty much all day, coming from 2 cdl drivers

Sheryl Boyd
My sister and I visited the truck show on the very last day. So few people we could see more in the line to see ice Road trucker her was very short! By the way he was really great. The trucks were magnificent but I also wish the last day would’ve lasted longer because so many of the trucks had already pulled out or were in the process of pulling out when we were there.

Andy Axelson
Great show this year. 105 trucks, great weather. Excellent crowd for the parade Saturday night. 715 large Cars will once again sponsor the Peoples choice award and the All can eat pancake and sausage breakfast on Sunday morning. Looking forward to 2017.

Paul Todorovich
Great people, beautiful trucks, the highlight for me was the truck parade on Saturday night with the little boy and his mom in the truck with me and thousands of people on the sidewalks applauding him.

Mary Norton
The show is great for everyone. The show is top notch we will be there.

Brian Hahn
You do not want to miss the parade. The show gets better and better each year. Can we get more Ice Road Trucker besides Alex?

Alice Ridgeway
Super fun for the kids or just the kid in you that still likes big trucks!

Jon Osburn
