“We are thrilled to be hosting this event in-person this year. We can’t wait for everyone to be here enjoying the trucks, music, food, fireworks and just being together,” says Heather DeBaillie, Vice President of Marketing. “The Walcott Truckers Jamboree is a celebration of the professional driver. The pandemic made it very clear who we rely on every day and, no surprise to us, truckers were at the top of the list. We appreciate the professional driver and the important job they do. They are the reason we have hosted this event for decades.”
On July 8th attendees can enjoy a performance by Iowa native, Casey Muessigmann, who appeared on “The Voice” Season 3 and feels most at home on stage. Local favorite Dani Lynn Howe and Band will kick off the concert at 5:00 PM. Fireworks and the Lights at Night show will follow!

Over 25 years, multiple platinum albums and 10 number one hits later, this energetic group still plays 100 shows a year. They are sure to play favorites such as No News, Come Crying to Me and Amazed. Fireworks will cap off the evening.
The show wraps up on Saturday, July 13th. The afternoon will feature the high energy rock ‘n’ roll sounds of Mo’s Garage starting at 1:00 PM.
