Community Events: Touch a Truck

The Churchill HS Interact club with the assistance of the Livonia AM Rotary Club, is hosting the annual Touch A Truck, which is a hands-on family event that provides a unique opportunity for children and adults alike to explore vehicles of all types including public service, emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, delivery, and just plain awesome – all in one place. 

Kids can blast horns and sirens, climb onto construction equipment, and learn how the equipment operates, all up close and hands-on. Children are encouraged to touch their favorite vehicles, get behind the wheel, and meet the people who help to build, protect and serve our community.


All donated proceeds and sponsorships go to support local organizations, such as our Livonia Police and Fire, the LPS Education Foundation, and many others. 

While Touch a Truck is a completely free event, we do ask for a $3.00 parking donation. These proceeds directly help local organizations that serve our community on a daily basis.

Date: Saturday, August 27, 2022

Time: 8:30 AM – 2:00 PM

Location: Greenmead Historic Village Special Event Parking

Address: 20501 Newburgh Rd, Livonia, MI 48152

Parking Fee: $3.00 donation requested

In consideration of visitors who are sensitive to loud noises, Touch a Truck offers “quiet time” from 8:30 AM – 10:30 AM. During those two hours, we will ask participants to refrain from sounding horns, sirens, and the like.
