Touch-a-Truck Festival is more than just trucks. Numerous types of vehicles will be on display as well as a variety of features such as a craft pavilion, food trucks, and much more.

Check back often to see new features as they are added!

Are there seats or will I need to stand? How much walking is involved?

Touch-a-Truck Festival invites attendees to explore on foot. Attendees are invited to walk as much as they would like to see all the trucks and activities.
