Touch a Truck - CANCELED

UPDATE:  Out of an abundance of caution for the health and wellbeing of the community and with guidance from the Ohio Governor’s office regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, the Touch A Truck 2020 event in West Chester has been canceled. For a list of other canceled and postponed events, check back regularly at   

Cool trucks bring out the kid in all of us. Each year, West Chester flings open the garage doors and shares with the community all of the cool trucks that serve our community every day.

Touch A Truck includes a “sensory friendly” hour from 10 to 11 a.m. Families may visit one hour early, before the full event gets rolling, to see West Chester Township public service vehicles up close and meet the heroes who operate the equipment. Participating vehicles will be located on West Chester Towne Centre Road. Vehicle attendants will discourage use of horns, lights and sirens during the hour, and there will be no helicopter landings or takeoffs.

Fire trucks, police vehicles, snow plows, military vehicles, helicopters, rescue boats and more line the streets on The Square @ Union Centre. Feel free to climb behind the wheel, sit in the shovel of the backhoe, and speak with the men and women who operate the equipment essential to community operations.

This event is completely free. Plan to spend a couple hours and then enjoy lunch at a nearby restaurant. 

Have a cool ride?

Community organizations with cool vehicles are invited to be part of this event. Those interested should complete and submit an application (linked below) by Friday, May 29. 


NOTE: During these uncertain times surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, please understand that the status of the 2020 Touch A Truck event is subject to change. West Chester will work together with all parties as best as possible and keep you informed of any updates or changes as soon as they become available. We hope you’ll please continue to consider taking part in this free, family-friendly event. It is participation from community partners, like you, that truly makes Touch A Truck special; however, we understand if these pending circumstances impact your availability. At present, Touch A Truck remains scheduled for Friday, June 12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on The Square @ Union Centre, 9285 Centre Pointe Drive.
