Big Rigs To Invade Downtown Nacogdoches, Texas
While you have been busy enjoying our summer vacation, a group of dedicated big rig enthusiasts have been working to make the best big rig show in the country right here in historic downtown Nacogdoches. The Old Town Rig Down is coming September 16th - 17th, 2022.
This is the first annual big rig truck show coming to downtown Nacogdoches. Registration for the trucks started on March 10th, 2022 just to give you an idea of how long and hard they have been working to make this a huge show.
There are only 100 slots total. The event is brought to you by the Massey Rose Foundation, a non-profit organization. 100% of the proceeds are going to finish the restoration of the old University Building and the Boys and Girls Club of Nacogdoches.
