GORE TRUCK SHOW 2022

Interested in `big shiny things with wheels’? This is the show for you.

 

For over 20 years truck lovers have savoured this event - and every year it gets bigger and better.

 

It’s an impressive display of rigs big and small, with their gleaming paintwork and shiny bumpers.  Last year close to 60 trucks took part, competing for the prized `best truck award’ in a variety of categories and for the premier `King Rig’ prize.

 

Popular with children and adults alike, you can get up close to the magnificently spruced-up trucks in the morning, and enjoy a BBQ, market stalls and entertainment from 9.00am. Then head along to Main Street to embrace the energy and noise of the spectacular truck parade before winners are announced and prizes awarded.
