Detroit Touch-A-Truck Presented by Magna

Saturday, May 11, 2019 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

The 5th annual Touch-A-Truck, presented by Magna, will bring some heavy-duty metal to West Riverfront Park on Saturday, May 11th!

Touch-a-Truck is a FREE hands-on family event that will provide children with the opportunity to explore large vehicles of all types, including those used by professionals in construction, public safety, transportation, landscaping and other industries.


Touch-A-Truck will take place at  West Riverfront Park, located just west of Joe Louis Arena at 1801 W. Jefferson.  West Riverfront, located between 8th street and Rosa Parks along Jefferson and the Detroit River’s edge, features 20 plus acres of lush greenspace, a 30-foot extra wide path, benches, security call boxes and our iconic marine railing. This location is ideal for large events or recreation activities such as fishing and biking.
