Dozer Day 2022 @ Cabela's
May 21 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

Dozer Day is an annual, community event hosted by the excavation industry to give kids an opportunity to operate heavy construction equipment and enjoy many other excavation-related activities for less than the cost of going to the movies.
Dozer Day is like going to a fair only our rides are real heavy construction equipment. Kids hop in the driver’s seat and actually drive dozers, excavators and other heavy equipment with a professional operator at their side. Not only is it a dream-come-true for kids (and fun for the whole family), the event also benefits many children’s charities.
We are so excited to see everyone at Cabela’s Stateline for this family fun event. Dozer day has something for everyone with food, giveaways, pipe and tire crawls, garbage trucks, fire trucks, an ambulance, and many other awesome activities.
Tickets on sale online now!!
