The Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) is thrilled to present our unique family experience on November 1 and 2, 2019 at the Pontchartrain Center. The 8th annual Touch a Truck will provide children the opportunity to interact with the wide variety of businesses and vehicles that protect, serve, and build South Louisiana. In addition to public ticket sales, JLNO’s Field Trip Friday program grants free entrance to students at under-served area schools.
We will be offering a “Quiet Time” on Saturday from 1 pm to 3 pm. The vehicles will not be permitted to run their sirens, lights, or horns during that period. If your child would prefer this environment to explore the event, plan to arrive during this time.
Children under 12 months get into the event for free.
Shipping is not included. Tickets may be picked up November 2, 2019 (day of event “will call”) at the Pontchartrain Center.
In addition to public ticket sales, JLNO’s Field Trip Friday program grants free entrance to students at under-served area schools. Your school is invited to apply to be a Field Trip Friday attendee on Friday, November 1st. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.

In 2018, nearly 3100 attendees of all ages thoroughly enjoyed the wide array of vehicles and activities, and your participation helped continue our efforts to make this a marquee event for years to come. JLNO also held its second Field Trip Friday that enabled 625 students from our partner schools to enjoy the event for free. Through ticket sales, business sponsorships, and donations, the event raised over $50,000 for JLNO’s community projects that advance the wellbeing of women in Metropolitan New Orleans.
