24 March 2024 Tui Truck Stop Show and Shine 

Get ready to rev your engines because the epic Tui Truck Stop Show and Shine event is making a comeback at the legendary Tui Brewery in Mangatainoka on Sunday, March 24, 2024. It’s a day dedicated to the trucking community to show off their rigs and compete for some seriously awesome prizes.

Join the convoy and roll out with one group leaving the Post Office Hotel in Pahiatua at 10.15am, while the other hits the road from Woodville’s Railway Station at 10am. Every year this is a spectacle and the perfect way to make your entrance to The Brewery.

The gates swing open for the public at 11am, and entry for spectators is free! Alongside the jaw-dropping display of trucks, enjoy free brewery tours, groove to live music, and chow down on some seriously tasty grub from the food trucks. And of course, the Tui kitchen and bar will be open, serving up all your favourite drinks and bites.

We look forward to bringing you an unmissable day that showcases the absolute best trucks in the country. And we want you right in the thick of the action! So, mark your calendars, spread the word with your trucking crew, and make sure to pre-register your truck or fleet to secure your spot in this celebration of the trucking community. Trust us, you won’t want to miss it!

Right here at Tui Brewery on the last Sunday of each month we invite car and motorbike owners to bring their ride to participate in one of our Mangatainoka Motors Show and Shine Days.

Are you the owner of a vintage, classic, or Hot Rod? Do you have a V8 that sets hearts quivering and gets heads turning? Are you team blue or team red, and do you have a sweet ride that represents your loyalty? Or perhaps you think two wheels are better than four?

Well, our Toki Motors Shows will get your motor humming. Well known by all Kiwi engine enthusiasts as a fabulous day out, these shows give you the chance to display your sweet ride for other car lovers and the general public to enjoy, and you can compete to win some epic prizes while you’re at it! Now, we bet that got your attention.

While you are here, enjoy the live music, delicious food, a cleansing ale, jump on a brewery tour, take a look at our Histui Museum, or do a bit of shopping for merchandise at the Tui Shop. Or simply kick back, relax, and catch up with family and friends while others check out your ride.
