Athens – The 4th annual Athens Truck show is being held this Friday, August 16th and Saturday, August 17th at the Athens Fairgrounds.
The Upper Canada Chapter of the Antique Truck Club of America hosted it’s first ever Athens Truck Show in 2016. The show has continued to grow over the past few years and in 2018 they hosted more than 215 vehicles from all over Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic Canada, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and Virginia!
For the avid truck enthusiast to the little ones with big dreams there is something for everyone.
The Athens Truck Show features vehicles vintage to modern, original to modified. A great deal of work goes into these trucks to maintain, restore, and simply make these trucks unique. Each is unique with chrome and stainless-steel accessories, custom body work and fabrications, mechanical modifications, and frame-off restorations. These polished beauties amaze hundreds of spectators as they stroll through both big and small trucks.
Slow truck races take place throughout the event and these big rigs will be lit up Saturday night for a spectacular light show.
As well, don’t miss the Athens Cornfest activities taking place on Saturday, August 17th.
The Athens Fairgrounds also offers ample room for dry camping as well for those interested ($$). This is a show you will not want to miss! The cost to register is $20.00 per truck and the show is free for spectators.
