If you like wheels and to have a good time, this is your weekend! Wheel Jam is a four-day event that consists of three major shows: car show, motorcycle show and semi show. Besides the foundation of the three main shows, there is a wealth of other activities that take place including live music, stock car races, and a Harley stunt show.

From the Make it Mine Show n’ Shine to the dynamic engine brake competition, to the biker games, a parade through Huron, and more, Wheel Jam is the perfect destination for motor heads or anyone else looking for a fun summer weekend.

In addition to the car, bike and semi shows and races, there are also concerts and entertainment for drivers, participants, and event goers alike. To learn more about the 2022 concerts, check out our event calendar.
