Approximately 100 construction companies, contractors, utility companies, and municipal works departments will give students a chance to handle power tools, drive a skid steer, study electrical circuits, work a backhoe, pour concrete and much more.

The event, which will display millions of dollars’ worth of equipment, and boasts more than 250 volunteers, has hosted more than 12,600 attendees since its first year in 2014.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics report for June 2023 found that the construction industry had roughly 374,000 job openings, and that number is expected to increase, which fuels the industry’s need to recruit a pipeline of skilled workers.
