Sadly, Deloraine Lions Club has made the difficult call to postpone the upcoming Tasmanian Truck Show which was to be held on the weekend of the 5th and 6th of March 2022. Our reason is due to the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and the effects it will have on the Truck Show.
We were all looking forward to bringing the Tasmanian Truck Show back home to Deloraine this year.
On a positive note The Tasmanian Truck Show will now always into the future be held at the Deloraine Showgrounds and we all look forward to seeing you all there in 2023.
The Tasmanian Truck N Ute Show is presented by the Lions Club of Deloraine, with the Hagley Rural Youth club organising the Ute section.
The first truck show at Deloraine was in 2003, and after much help and encouragement by long time trucking identity Mr Errol Nothrop of Ulverstone, has now become an annual event.
It is organised by a committee of the Lions Club of Deloraine and recieves tremendous support from the Trucking Industry.
The aim of the Lions Club is to provide a central location for dealers, owners and drivers to display their trucks and to actively promote safety within the trucking industry.
Businesses associated with the trucking industry are encouraged to attend and display their goods.
Each year approx 100 trucks of all ages, sizes and types are judged and trophies are awarded in order for Judges Choice, Peoples Choice, Bestof Make and Best of Type on the basis of only one trophy per truck.
The truck judging is between 8:00 and 11:30 AM with trophy presentation at approximately 2:30 pm.
Admission charges: $10:00 per adult, $5:00 per pensioner, children under 14 and drivers of show vehicles free.
Onsite catering provided by the Lions Clubs of Deloraine and Westbury.
The 2020 Tasmanian Truck Show was held on the 9th February. There were 93 trucks presented to the judges and there were 26 utes in the ute section which was run by the Hagley Rural Youth Club. Some pictures from the show are below:
