Vintage Power Wagon Rally Annual Event
Held the first week in June
The event draws attendees from around the U.S., as well as from Canada, Australia, and Europe—all of them enthusiasts of an iconic truck celebrated for its rugged design and diverse functionality.
But the rallies are not just celebrations of a classic truck—they’re also family gatherings for an array of attendees, many of whom have been coming to the event for much or all of their lives.
The Dodge Power Wagon line started in response to demand among World War II veterans for the type of durable truck used by American soldiers in the war. Dodge created a civilian version that mirrored the military vehicle’s capacity for maneuvering in a wide variety of terrains. The Dodge Power Wagon line of trucks continues to this day, a 70-year and counting run for the beloved brand.
Vintage Power Wagons focuses on trucks and parts made from 1940 to 1971. That golden era is well represented by the collectors who congregate in Fairfield for the rally—which happens to be the largest and longest-running Power Wagon rally in the world.
A few events are open to the public, including the Grand Power Wagon Parade at 8:30 a.m. and an open air truck show on the square from 9 to 11 a.m..
