Events by the Truckload


We offer a traveling creative arts program for community fairs and festivals, schools, businesses, summer camps, and other organizations. People of all ages can create anything they’d like using our fascinating variety of re-purposed materials — from hats to rockets to musical instruments to handbags. Our staff set up our famous blue barrels of materials, facilitate the creativity, and clean up afterwards.

Our Events by the Truckload program has 3 options for you to choose from!

Make and Take!

We bring 2 staff members to facilitate the activity, up to 25 barrels of materials, plus scissors, tape, and staplers. Participants have limitless opportunity to create original projects to take home with them. Everyone can create without needing to wait!


Junk Jams!

We send up to 70 instruments made from upcycled materials. Artist Shannon Morrow leads the drum circles at pre-determined intervals and has a 2nd staff person to assist. Click the link and scroll forward to 1 min 35 sec to see Junk Jams in action:


Build It!

We bring loose parts and facilitate free play for participants. They have the opportunity to construct, demolish, explore, and use their imagination as they interact with the materials and each other.
