Ticket Alert! Touch A Truck Event in the East Bay

Do you know what a Touch A Truck event is? It’s a family-friendly gathering of real vehicles that kids (and their chaperones!) can climb aboard, push buttons, and honk horns.

The Junior League of the East Bay has put together a Touch A Truck event for April 29, 2023 at Balestrieri Family Farms in Briones and tickets are available now.

What to expect at the Briones Touch A Truck event

Briones is a green hilly area adjacent to Martinez, about 30 minutes from Berkeley. The farm will be welcoming families to hang out for the day, so if you’d like to pack a blanket and lunch, you can set up a home base while you enjoy the festivities.
