Climb.  Explore.  Learn.  TOUCH!

The 9th Annual Touch a Truck is a unique and interactive event that allows children to see, touch, and safely explore their favorite big trucks and heavy machinery, as well as to meet the personnel who protect, serve, and build the Richmond community. Vehicles on display include tractors, backhoes, emergency responders, tractor trailers, utility trucks, and helicopter. The event also features area mascots, special performances, food trucks, face painting, bounce castles, and games.  There is fun for children and adults alike!

The Junior League of Richmond is most grateful to J. E. Liesfeld Contractor, Inc., Signature "Tractor Trailer" Sponsor, and to Richmond Times-Dispatch, Richmond Family Magazine and NBC12 Around Town, Media Sponsors, for their dedicated support of this event.

Tips from Touch a Truck past attendees to help you navigate this fun event:

  • Wear comfortable, closed toe shoes. You and your kids will be climbing all over trucks and we want to protect your feet!
  • Bring cash for tickets and food purchased on-site. There will be an ATM available but there may be a line.
  • Don’t forget the camera! We are sure you will want photos of the smiling faces as they climb into the fire truck!
  • Parking is free and there will be attendants to help you locate a spot in the RIR parking lot. Enter the event through the main RIR gate (near the LOVE sign). 
  • If you need help with anything while in attendance ask a Junior League of Richmond volunteer. They are pretty easy to spot in their red shirts!
