PDX Adult Soap Box Derby

  • Mt. Tabor Park Portland OR 97215 (map)

Every year since 1997, Portland’s finest have pulled their home built creations to the top of Mount Tabor and let gravity guide them to the bottom of the hill. Now in its 19th year, the derby continues this beloved summertime tradition. Watch the 40+ coaster cars race, powered only by gravity, whimsy, and attitude. At the end of the day winners receive awards for speed, engineering, art, crowd pleasure and more.
