September 6th and 7th, 2024
It’s always the weekend after Labor Day

Experience the roar of diesel engines and the shine of chrome wheels in Kasson, MN. Mark your calendars for the Big Iron Classic. It’s not just any truck show; it’s a gathering of over 600 of the finest rigs on the road, transforming the small town of Kasson, MN into a hub of trucking excellence. Celebrated as the Midwest’s premier ‘Working Class’ truck show, the Big Iron Classic also stands out as a major toy donor in the region, driving home the spirit of community and generosity. Walk among the trucks, visit vendor booths, enjoy food, listen to music and connect with friends.

There is no charge to the public for any events except the truck pull. However, we encourage you to show your appreciation and support for our event by contributing a toy or two in one of the collection boxes.


Admission to the tractor pull for the general public is $10.00 per person Tickets go on-sale at 4:30pm the day of the event only.

Ages 13 and older require a ticket for the truck pull. Kids 12 and younger will be admitted free with a paid adult.

Pit passes are also available at registration all weekend and at the back gate prior to the pull. No children under the age of 14 in the pit area. For safety reasons Families with children in the pits must stay in fenced in area of the pits.

Truck Pull

The truck pull is the hi-light of the weekend. Come and watch as these big diesel trucks compete to pull a weighted sled as it digs deeper into the track the further it is pulled. This year’s bragging rights are up for grabs again!

Every year this event is a complete sellout. This year will be even better as we will have several classes in the truck pull along with the “King of the hill”, a pull-off with the champions in each class excluding Antiques. A winner’s trophy is awarded in each class.
