Portland All-Ages Shoebox Derby

All Ages
"The Portland Adult Soapbox Derby will roll on, though it will look a little different than the derby of past years.This year instead of heading to the mountain, volunteers are building their own Tabletop Tabor, a mini-mountain model of epic proportions. Teams are invited to register and then build their original model cars at home to be delivered to Derby Central Office before race day. The shenanigans on our virtual volcano will be live-streamed on, August 15th, 2020 to the whole world! Race day will include footage from past races, live racer interviews, a live video ‘Pits’ and lots of other live opportunities for the audience to interact and vote for their favorite cars. In lieu of food carts there will be race day food and drink specials available for pickup and delivery throughout Portland. This year PASD is also partnering with Weird Portland United so it is guaranteed to be a day packed with entertainment." (Promo Copy)
