The Walcott Truckers Jamboree began in 1979 featuring a few exhibits, live music, food and a small display of antique trucks. While the first event attracted a few hundred drivers, today the show draws 30,000 people. The event is focused on celebrating America's truckers.

"Professional drivers work hard to deliver goods to our businesses, schools and communities," said Delia Moon Meier, Iowa 80 Truckstop senior vice president. "Everything we have has been hauled on a truck at some point. The Walcott Truckers Jamboree is our way of saying thank you for the work professional drivers do; to let them know that we appreciate them and we're glad they choose to stop at Iowa 80."
