Rock’n August

Rock'n August, one of the largest celebrations of classic cars and music in Western Canada.

Springtime 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 9th consecutive year.  The event provides excitement for everyone on hand, racers and spectators alike.  With more than 50 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.  After the change, it was reviewed and the decision has been made to move back to a FATHER’S DAY EVENT!
