Trade Night Tradition: Lineman T-Shirt Designs

Oct. 18, 2022
Linemen swapped colorful T-shirts at the annual Trade Night, which is part of Lineman's Rodeo Week. Here are some of our favorites.

The night before the International Lineman's Rodeo, linemen and their families gather at the Overland Park Convention Center for two traditions: Kansas City BBQ and the T-shirt Trade Night.

Every year, we look forward to seeing the creative and colorful lineman-themed designs, which are printed on everything from caps to stickers to short-sleeved and long-sleeved T-shirts. Linemen often pack their shirts in duffel bags and then trade them with other linemen for shirts from across the country. 

The video below shows the Trade Night in action, and the photo gallery recognizes the linemen who were participating in the T-shirt Trade Night tradition.
