Soapbox Derby

Historically, the Annual Soap Box Derby was presented each year on Father’s Day.  Reborn in 2011 as a part of the 150th Anniversary of the City of St Albert, the event was picked up by Rock ‘N August in 2012.  RNA wanted to ensure that it continued as part of the annual list of events in St Albert and this year we are happy to say we are into our 8th consecutive year.  The event provides excitement for everyone on hand, racers and spectators alike.  With more than 75 racers each year between the ages of 6 and 12, you never know what you are going to see.  This is definitely a Spectator friendly Event.  

In 2018, we have made the decision to move the event to the Sunday BEFORE Father’s Day.  This was a practical decision based on feedback from families and volunteers who have family commitments on Father’s Day that do not allow them to participate.  Both our need for volunteers and our desire to increase our base of entries lead us to this decision.  We hope you stay with us and add this event to your calendar in 2018!
