HNN’s Annual Touch-A-Truck Fundraiser & Food Truck Festival Is Back!

Holliston Newcomers & Neighbors (HNN) invites children of all ages to climb aboard a variety of trucks and vehicles at this year’s HNN Touch-A-Truck Fundraiser & Food Truck Festival on Saturday, May 18, 2024.  The event will run from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, rain or shine, at the Sam Placentino Elementary School, 235 Woodland Street (off Route 16) in Holliston, MA.  The event will be horn-free for the first hour (10:00 am – 11:00 am), which is ideal for younger children and children with special needs.

We anticipate over 25 trucks, including police & fire, heavy construction, landscaping, tree removal, and highway which will be available for children to touch, climb and explore.

Bring your appetites because food and dessert will be available from a variety of food trucks, including All Purpose Bakery, Bird’s Nest Italian Street Food, Boston Events, Fired Up Artisan Wood-Fired Pizza, Juniper Farms Ice Cream, Smokin’ Food Truck and Sweetie’s Candy Bus. 

And there’s more! JoJo the Magician will astound and a DJ will provide musical entertainment. For an additional fee, and available throughout the event, Roaming Railroad will take children on a train ride and Imagine That will offer face painting.

Event admission is $10 per child (12 & under) and $2 per adult. Proceeds support Holliston Newcomers & Neighbors Community Grant Fund.  The HNN Community Grant Fund provides funding for important Holliston events and services, which has included the Holliston Parks & Recreation Summer Concert Series, Holliston Town Library free museum passes, Holliston Community Farm, Holliston in Bloom as well as equipment purchases for the Holliston Police & Fire Departments.
