Kids playing on construction equipment.

Dozer Day is the ultimate construction experience: putting kids in the driver’s seat to operate dump trucks, dozers and excavators all while educating about building sustainable communities, industry opportunities and public safety.

There is something for everyone with

  • music,
  • food,
  • giveaways,
  • digging for treasures (including real gemstones),
  • pipe and tire crawls,
  • garbage trucks,
  • fire trucks,
  • an ambulance
  • and MUCH more!

Young guests receive a FREE official Dozer Day hardhat and will enjoy collecting sponsor stickers for their hat while they get their “dig” on. Also, once admission is paid, all rides are FREE with just a couple activities requiring a donation to participate.

Dozer Day exists to educate and inspire the next generation of construction professionals, however, the fun doesn’t end after the big weekend. Although the Nutter Foundation’s primary contribution is Dozer Day, money raised through the event benefits many children’s charities like schools, sports booster clubs, child enrichment/support services, and other well-deserving non-profits.

Dozer Day Vancouver is ALWAYS the 3rd weekend in May – RAIN OR SHINE! For 2017, it is

Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21 from 11am until 4pm.

Dozer Day is held at the Clark County Fairgrounds at 17402 NE Delfel Rd., Ridgefield, WA 98642, just off of I-5 at Exit 9. Without traffic, it’s 15 minutes from downtown Portland. Please no smoking and no pets at Dozer Day with the exception of service animals.
