We’re calling all truckers to the Jamboree! If you are within driving distance of Iowa 80 and you’re a trucker, the Truckers Jamboree is a central part of your summer. After the 2020 Jamboree took place virtually, the 37th Annual Walcott Truckers Jamboree will take place in-person at the famous Iowa 80 Truckstop. Here’s what to expect at the Truckers Jamboree, which lasts from July 8 through July 10.
Lots of Exhibits
Over 175 companies and individuals are hosting exhibitions of new products and the latest trucker technology. Plan to spend hours of your time at the Truckers Jamboree 2021 seeing what other truckers and vendors have been up to the past two years.
If you’re a truck nerd, a gear head, a chrome lover, a grease monkey – you will love looking at the antique truck display. Think back to the history of trucking in the United States by checking out the Jamboree’s antique truck display. And while you’re at The World’s Largest Truckstop, take a stroll through the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum.
Plenty of Merch
No trip to Iowa 80 is complete without checking out the merch, and the Truckers Jamboree isn’t an exception. Your favorite Iowa 80 merch is back, including 100-ounce mugs for your long drives, caps for keeping the sun out of your face, and snow globes to remind you of the road when you’re at home.
The selection of 2021 merch includes brand-new t-shirts. Available in green, black, and gray, 2021’s shirts center around a 2018 Kenworth W900L, which won the Super Trucks Beauty Contest in 2020. In honor of your experiences with breast cancer, the shirt includes a pink ribbon. Pre Order your merch now, or stop in-store when you’re at the Jamboree. Sorry fellas – the 2021 Walcott Truckers Jamboree Diecast Truck is already sold out.

Country Music & Delicious Food
One of the things that you’ve missed the most during the pandemic is live country music, and the Truckers Jamboree is ready to fix that. Every day, enjoy live music from Dany Lynn Howe, Casey Muessigmann, North of 40, Lonestar, and Mo’s Garage.
Some of our bigger acts include:
“The Voice” Season 3’s member, Casey Musseigmann. Part of Blake Shelton’s team, Musseigmann has since focused his time on co-producing his newest album, “Between the Rows,” and spending time on stage.
Lonestar is making a grand appearance! Lonestar has charted more than 20 singles on the Hot Country Songs chart, including 9 that reached No. 1: “No News“, “Come Cryin’ to Me“, “Amazed“, “Smile“, “What About Now“, “Tell Her“, “I’m Already There“, “My Front Porch Looking In“, and “Mr. Mom“.
For the best pork chops in Iowa, don’t forget to check out the famous cookout as you enjoy the live music and trucking displays.
