Touch-a-Truck 2020

Open Gate Nursery School has made the difficult decision to cancel Touch-a-Truck for 2020.  Due to the CDC large group guidelines, social distancing and the uncertain world environment, it was a decision that was unfortunately inevitable. We thank everyone for their continued support of our community and school, and wish everyone health and wellness in the times to come. We look forward to seeing you at Touch-a-Truck 2021!

Touch-a-Truck is a hands-on family event designed to give children an opportunity to see and touch their favorite things on wheels, and to meet the men and women who operate these vehicles.  We are proud to offer this fun event to our beloved Redwood City community and neighbors from around the Bay Area.

What to Expect

This is an opportunity for community businesses, utilities and public works to teach children about the equipment and how these vehicles help the community.

  • Children are encouraged to touch, climb on, and ask questions about their favorite trucks in a safe, supervised environment.
  • Enjoy a mini race track for child-powered vehicles.
  • Art activities offer a variation on the truck theme.
  • Take a break for lunch or a treat with on-site food vendors.
  • FREE parking off of Seaport Ct. directly adjacent to the event.
  • Check back for pre-ticket sales, location and parking
