Welcome! Soap Box Derby racing is an event that the whole family can enjoy. Each participant will use Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to prepare their car to race.
The 2021 Athens Soap Box Derby will be held on June 5, 2021 from 7 AM – 1 PM.
In 1995, the Athens Parks & Recreation Department held the first local Soap Box Derby race, and since that time, Athens has sent 24 champions in the Stock, 21 champions in the Super Stock, and 10 champions in the Super Kids divisions to the world championships in Akron, Ohio. Each year, over 30 drivers in the local race compete to be the champion that gets to make their mark on Akron.
