California Truck Invasion: This Event Is an Epic Celebration of Truck Culture


If you consider yourself to be a diehard truck aficionado, then the California Truck Invasion is one upcoming event that should definitely rev your engine. Held at the National Orange Show Event Center in San Bernardino, the family-friendly event celebrates truck culture and invites attendees to showcase street trucks of all types.

According to this description of the California Truck Invasion from Tire Meets Road, this really does seem to have all the makings of a can't-miss experience.

California Truck Invasion or CTI is the nation's largest, rowdiest, and vendor friendly truck show, as the event title hints at, meant solely for trucks. Truck culture has really picked up in the past couple of years with the first CTI in 2016. Since then, with wild burnouts, the "wettest" rides, and the hottest engine swaps from the show making the rounds on social media, this CTI is THEE show to go to if you love trucks in California.

This show has got it all: Incredible trucks on display, burnouts, and engine swaps. What more can you ask for? Let's go! But, in case that description didn't completely sell you, here's some footage from the 2018 California Truck Invasion. Check it out!

While the California Truck Invasion is usually held in mid-April, the craziness caused by the COVID-19 pandemic pushed things back several months. According to, this year's event will be held on Saturday, September 26, from 12:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. PDT.

Aside from the typical festivities, the show, which is on South E Street in San Bernardino, will also feature live music from bands like Los Tucanes de Tijuana and Los Nuevos Ilegales. Needless to say, this definitely will be a pleasant change of pace from all the virtual events that have been going on due to coronavirus.
