Tui Brewery has confirmed the super-popular Tui Truck Stop Show and Shine will return to Mangatainoka on Sunday 24 March 2024.

This annual truck show is a highlight on the New Zealand trucking calendar, where trucks from all over the country descend on Tui Brewery for a great day out – providing an impressive display of big rigs for drivers, owners, truck lovers, and families alike.

Previous events have seen up to 200 trucks displayed at the brewery. Trucks from as far away as Pukekohe, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki, and Christchurch have attended previous shows.

“We’re thrilled to be kicking off our 2024 Mangatainoka Motors events with the Tui Truck Stop Show & Shine. This is by far our biggest Toki Motors event year on year and a great day of celebration for the trucking community. The truck owners and drivers put so much effort into shining up their vehicles and taking time off the road to come to Tui Brewery and really make a day of it. This event just gets better every year,” said organiser Jesse Robinson.

Entry is free for spectators and great entertainment will be on offer, with live music, great food, good company, cold beer and other refreshments. The event kicks off at 11am. Trucks are invited to join the convoys departing from the Woodville Railway Station at 10am and Pahiatua Post Office Hotel at 10.15am.

“We are changing the entries up a little this year and will have two price tiers, $10 for a single vehicle and $30 for a fleet of three to 15 vehicles. The fleets convoying into the brewery creates such an impact and we love the camaraderie, so we wanted to encourage participants to enter as a team. All registrations this year will be online to save time on the day so we encourage you to enter online before the event or via QR code on the day. Our team will be on hand to help if needed,” says Robinson.

Truck enthusiasts can register their rigs on the Tui Brewery website. You will also see here the revised prize categories for the event. All proceeds from registrations will go towards the show’s regular beneficiary, the Mangatainoka Reserve Restoration Project, for ongoing work such as native planting, fencing, and pathways.
