2024 Indy Area Touch-A-Truck Events Guide

Touch-A-Truck, vroom-vroom!  Load up your family in the car and start your engines to head over to one of the fabulous Indianapolis area Touch-A-Truck events listed in this guide. Kids LOVE these events, especially the preschool crowd and younger school-aged kids. Your family will be able to explore various vehicles by climbing into, on, and around. You’ll see and get to climb behind the wheel of police cars, fire trucks, ambulances, garbage trucks, and construction vehicles. Tractors? Yes, there will be tractors.

We suggest that you bring ear protection for babies and children to protect their ears from noise and to prevent them from becoming startled by the sudden and unexpected sounds of horns and sirens. Don’t forget sunscreen and bring water bottles to help your family stay cool and hydrated in the heat.

Touch-A-Trucks allow your little ones to get in the driver’s seat and experience the trucks they love so much in a hands-on way. You’ll see everything from big rigs, to farm trucks, to rescue vehicles. Indy area Touch-A-Truck events are among the best-loved activities for local families.

We’re waiting to hear about many 2024 Touch-A-Truck events in the Indianapolis area. Bookmark this page and check back often.
