Day Of The Dozers


This annual event, hosted at ERX, is put on by the Day of the Dozers team and volunteers. It is a hands-on event for children, giving them the experience of operating a piece of construction equipment with a trained and experienced operator while helping to raise funding for Childrens Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

The team is hard at work with plans to make the 2020 event the best yet! Quicker lines, more food options and more can be expected on September 28th. 


Spectators/Adults $10
Children 3-11 $20
Children 2 & Under FREE*
*Only limited to equipment with jump-seats.

At The Door

Spectators/Adults $15
Children 3-11 $25
Children 2 & Under FREE*
*Only limited to equipment with jump-seats.

We ask that ever participant please be respectful and patient with the lines for Day of the Dozers. The entire team does their best to keep them moving but lines are inevitable. The team works hard to be mindful of machine duration with each child to ensure equal and appropriate equipment allotment.

The team also requests that each adult standing in line must have a child present with them. Multiple group members saving spots in various lines hinders the experience for other families and kids. Please respect others and keep a positive attitude as we continue to develop a world-class experience for each child at our event.
