Children may touch their favorite trucks, get behind the wheel and meet the people who help build, protect and serve our community. Crafts, games and food trucks are also available.

What child doesn’t love to Climb. Explore. Learn. Touch?! Truck-A-Palooza provides the unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types, including public service, emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, delivery and just plain cool – all in one place! Children will be allowed to touch their favorite vehicles, get behind the wheel, and meet the people who help build, protect, and serve our community. Crafts, games, and food trucks will also be part of the day’s entertainment.

This year, we are hosting a QUIET HOUR for those that are sensitive to sirens and horns. Quiet hour will be from 9am to 10am.

In addition to holding a unique outdoor event for the community, The Junior League of Albuquerque organizes Truck-A-Palooza to support the League’s mission and our focus on promoting a successful transition out of foster care for aged out youth in our community. And beginning this year, our signature project, The Junior League of Albuquerque’s Diaper Bank.

Last year’s event saw more than 650 people through the gates with more than 20 vehicles on display. Truck-A-Palooza was featured on three local news channels and four local radio stations.

Truck-A-Palooza provides an excellent opportunity for companies to showcase their brand and interact with parents, children, League members and the community-at-large. There are multiple ways for your organization to participate: event sponsorship, truck/vehicle exhibition, vendor booths or in-kind support services.
