Climb aboard emergency and military trucks from the Town of Hopkinton Fire, Police and Department of Public Works, as well as State Police and National Guard vehicles.

As in years past, we are looking forward to about 50 different vehicles filling the HHS parking lot. Roaming Railroad will provide a trackless train and a model car race track. The first hour is horn-free for sensitive ears.


Touch-A-Truck is generously sponsored by Phipps Insurance Agency who has been the lead sponsor of this fun filled, community event for years.

Bring a blanket or chair and feast on lunch and dessert from a variety of Food Trucks including: Cousin’s Lobster Truck, Red Barn Cookies, Uncle Joey’s Cannoli, Minuteman Kettle Corn, Trolley Dogs, Uncle E’s BBQ, VeeBop’s Ice Cream, Kona Ice, Kith & Kin, and Yummy Mummy.

In 2018, this fun-filled community event hosted 2,500 kids and their families and raised over $20,000 for the restoration, renovation and expansion of Hopkinton Public Library. This year’s Touch-A-Truck will support a start-up collection of a Library of Things!
