The Super Party Camionneurs, the biggest trucking event, is set to celebrate its 30th anniversary in style from May 31 to June 2 at the Ferme-Neuve multisport grounds, in Quebec.

As in previous years, this family-friendly event will feature street food, a flea market, exhibitions, and heavy truck races. The festivities kick off on Friday with free practice sessions and a rock concert that promises to be electrifying, headlined by the highly anticipated Eric Lapointe, with Rick Hugues as the opening act. DJ D-NOY will be on the decks for the third consecutive year to close out the evening.

Saturday will be animated by the official start of the races in the morning and a lineup that includes Lendemain de Veille and the popular singer Matt Lang. A new feature this year is the return of the traditional truck parade on Sunday starting at 10 a.m. on Route 309.

For the 30th edition, event organizers Ben Therrien and Julien Allaire Lefebvre have decided to go all out. “This is the year we take flight. We acquired the Super Party three and a half years ago, and we’ve always vowed to make it the biggest event in the Hautes-Laurentides region,” says Ben. To achieve this, thousands of dollars have been invested to meet the requirements of artists Matt Lang and Eric Lapointe. “The city has invested heavily in the stage. We’ve moved it forward and added about 40 feet to the front.” According to Ben, this expansion is a long-term investment, with even higher aspirations for future editions. “We’re already negotiating to have an even bigger headline act for next year. We always aim to enhance the quality of the show, and we’re currently looking to feature an American artist. We’re working very hard on that.”

As the organizers make their final preparations, online ticket sales have already doubled those of last year. Recall that nearly 12,000 people attended the last edition. “In my opinion, there will be as much traffic in Ferme-Neuve as on the Metropolitaine in Montreal,” asserts Mr. Therrien, with a smile in his voice. Although he ensures that the Ferme-Neuve multisport grounds are spacious enough to accommodate all who wish to attend, he suggests arriving early in the morning.

This year, to celebrate its 30th anniversary, the honorary presidents of the event are Jacques Lafleur and Ginette Legault, the province’s most popular truck racers, who together pilot truck #30—Jacques as the driver and Ginette as the co-pilot managing the truck’s electronics. They will be present to celebrate with festival-goers!

Tickets are available on-site and on the event’s website.
