Fergus Truck Show
Since 1986, the Fergus Truck Show has grown to be North America’s largest truck show, both in paid attendance and the number of the big truck ‘Show & Shine’ contestants.
The Fergus Truck Show is the major community fundraising project for the Alma Optimist Club, Arthur Optimist Club, Belwood Lions Club, Centre Wellington In-Line Hockey, Country Wings, CWDHS Missions, Elora Mohawks, Fergus Devils Junior Hockey Club, Fergus Tennis Club, Grand Harmony, Tri City Football, Highland Rugby Football Club, Melville United Church, Men for Missions, Centre Wellington Rotary Club, Royal City Ambassadors, Fergus Lions Club, Community Resource Group, Fergus Boy Scouts and Fergus Curling Club.
The Fergus Truck Show has donated more than $600,000 in cash and donations to the various groups assisting and to the Centre Wellington Community Sportsplex (Fergus Community Centre). The weekend event has resulted in approximately $80million in economic benefit for the Community.
In 2003, 2005 through 2009 the Fergus Truck Show has been named one of Ontario’s Top 100 Events as well as the recipient of the Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce “Tourism Impact Award”.
The Fergus Truck Show takes a year-round role in the positive promotion of the trucking industry by answering inquiries related to the industry (where to go and how-to questions), as well as participation in community safety events/programs, and speaking to groups. We are also good listeners for industry individuals with concerns and problems.
The Fergus Truck Show is proud to feature over 150 million dollars worth of trucks, trailers, equipment, accessories and more, on display.
