Touch a Truck


Touch a Truck is an educational community event that provides children a hands-on opportunity to see and touch heavy machinery, and meet the people who build, protect, and serve Durham and Orange Counties.

Kids of all ages can explore fire engines, ambulances, tow trucks, bulldozers, garbage trucks (clean ones!), cranes and more. The event also has plenty of other activities, including game trucks and appearances from local team mascots.

Join us Saturday, March 25, 10am to 2pm, at the Streets at Southpoint mall for the JLDOC Touch a Truck event! Cost is $5/person and children under 2 are free! For a quieter experience, children with sensory issues are welcome to come early from 9am to 10am.

Proceeds from Touch a Truck benefit the Junior League of Durham and Orange Counties’ work within the local community. For more information or to become a participant of the 2016 event, please email

A Big “Thank You” to the Following 2016 Participants!
