Soapbox Derby

The Annual Soap Box Derby is 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 moves into its 7th 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.
