Frequently Asked Questions
What is DOZER DAY?
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.
When is Dozer Day?
Dozer Day is the 3rd weekend in May so this years dates will be May 21st and May 22nd. Gates open at 11:00 am and close at 4:00 pm. There is a special VIO (Very Important Operator) opening at 10 am each day for our valued sponsors & their guests. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, visit our Sponsors page.
