In less than a week, I’ll be gripping the edge of my seat, watching custom driving machines crush cars and fly through the air because….

Monster Jam® is coming to Portland, Oregon!

Grab your tickets now to see Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam® at the Rose Garden Arena!


Die-hard Monster Truck fans will be able to catch all of their favorite trucks at this exciting event. The event will feature USHRA Monster Trucks Grave Digger®, El Toro Loco®, Mohawk Warrior®, Monster Mutt® Dalmatian, Captain USA, Double Trouble, Destroyer and Playin For Keeps!!

Each of these incredible trucks are approximately 12 feet tall and 12 feet wide! These are custom-designed driving machines that sit on tires that are 66 inches tall! (Can you imagine tires the size of the average woman?!) Did you know that monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour, and can fly up to125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air?! I can’t wait to see these monster trucks in action on Saturday!

I am super excited to share this new experience with David and our two oldest kids. This will officially be our first Monster Truck show, and I cannot wait to surprise the kids. Our little man (almost 5) is going to FREAK OUT (in a good way)! I know we are in for one LOUD, exciting, and memorable adventure! It’s going to be crazy fun to do something completely out of our ordinary….getting out of our rut and experiencing something new together. (All while our kids are in car-crashing, cool truck heaven of course.)

If you’re interested in going, hurry and get your tickets! Monster Jam will be in Portland one weekend only!
