Over 600 trucks expected for upcoming Casino Truck Show

Touted as one of the biggest truck shows in the southern hemisphere, the countdown is on for the Casino Truck Show, which is just a few months away.

Being held in the Casino CBD on Saturday August 3, the event promises to be an inspiring showcase of innovation, performance and community.

Richmond Valley Council’s acting general manager Angela Jones said last year’s Casino Truck Show was the biggest yet with more than 600 trucks on display and an estimated 14,000 people attending.

With a similar sized event expected this year, intensive re-mapping of the Casino CBD has been undertaken to ensure all attendees would fit comfortably.

Jones said the Casino Truck Show was not just a celebration of trucks; it was a celebration of the pride, passion and dedication shown by the men and women of the transport industry as a whole.

“As we countdown the final 100 days until the event, we invite enthusiasts and industry professionals alike to join us in the Richmond Valley for an unforgettable experience which showcases the best of what the trucking world has to offer,” Ms Jones said.

“As we prepare to welcome attendees and trucks from across the nation, we would like to express our appreciation for the unwavering support and collaboration of the Truck Show’s sponsors.

“We look forward to celebrating the success of this year’s event and to continuing our partnerships in the future.”

Three new trophy categories have been included this year – Show Truck Champions, Sensational Six and Great Eight, bringing the total to 14 awards, equating to more than 70 trophies up for grabs.

The Casino Truck Show will also partner with men’s health charity Movember, with upcoming announcements to be made within this space.

Entertainment will include Mossy Rocks and the Tony Q Band, who will be rocking out tunes from two separate stages, another change up for 2024. There will also be plenty of kid-friendly activities such as amusement rides and face painting, and a range of exhibitors showcasing industry-related products and services.

J&J Rodeo will also put on a spectacular Bull Ride under the roof of the new arena at the Casino Showground and Racecourse.

The ever-popular street parade starts at 10am, with the trophy presentation at 3pm.

Online registrations open Monday June 3, with the fee remaining unchanged at $30 per entrant.
