Dozer Day will be at Yakima State Fair Park in Yakima, Washington for 2016 (1301 S. Fair Ave. Yakima, WA).
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. It is a dream-come-true for kids of all ages.
Dozer Day is the 3rd weekend in March. The next Dozer Day event will be held Saturday, March 18th and Sunday, March 19th, 2017, from 11am to 4 pm. We also have VIO "Very Important Operator" time available for sponsors only before gates open to the public.
Purchase tickets early to save money and avoid ticket lines on the day of the event. You can purchase tickets securely online or at State Fair Park. Tickets are good for either day but not both. You must purchase a ticket for each day you attend Dozer Day. Admission is $8 for children (ages 2 - 12) and seniors (60+), $10 for adults and free for those under 2 years old. Tickets on the day of the event are $11 for kids and seniors and $13 for adults. Once admission is paid, the cost of most activities inside the event are free, including equipment rides.
Tickets are not refundable.
Dozer Day has activities for kids of all ages. When it comes to the construction equipment the younger kids get more help from the operators then the older ones. In addition to the heavy equipment there is also an ambulance and fire truck to climb in and around, PUD activities, and lots of sand and construction toys to play with as well. For the bigger kids... If you and the operator fit in the cab together you are good to go! Climb on in, grab the controls and have fun. If you are in the biggest kid category (Yes this includes adults) there are activities geared just for you as well. Have you ever wanted to drive a backhoe? excavator? roller? now's your chance. Hop in and drive by yourself! In addition to that there is also a scavenger hunt and shooting for prizes game that caters to big kids as well.
Dozer Day tickets can be used either day but in order to attend two days you will need two tickets. You need one ticket per day per person.
