Truckfest returns to Peterborough

Since 1983 Truckfest has been delivering a great day out and a fantastic family experience – and from Saturday through to Bank Holiday Monday you will once again be amazed by monster trucks and arena stunt shows; meet celebrities and children’s characters; and enjoy exhilarating rides and see some incredible trucks.

‘Super Saturday’ is back at Truckfest too.

First introduced in 2021, Super Saturday starts a little later in the day and gives visitors the chance to see the trucks and trade first.
