Fun For The Whole Family

Touch-A-Truck Times Publishing Group Inc tpgonlinedaily.comOn May 7, 2017, the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation is planning a countywide Touch-A-Truck event in Scotts Valley (

Touch-A-Truck events have become a big draw throughout California, attracting thousands of families, and we are the first to host one in Santa Cruz County.

Touch-A-Truck is a fun event for kids and their families to explore over 25 emergency, construction, agriculture, transportation, and other one-of-a-kind vehicles.

The basic premise is exactly what it sounds like — get a bunch of cool, giant trucks (Emergency, Transportation, Construction, Off-Road… and some surprises!) together in a large field setting and let boys and girls of all ages (maybe even some lucky adults) explore them and sit in the driver’s seat (and honk the horn!).

To keep interest high for everyone, we have a climbing wall and obstacle course, food trucks and drink pavilion, and Santa Cruz’ favorite live band, The Joint Chiefs performing on the main stage.

The vehicles will be parked on the old airport field adjacent to Skypark with the event running from 10:30 am – 3:00 pm.

The proceeds from this event will go 100% to Scotts Valley Public School programs.
