Ready, set…Race! Delta’s inaugural Soap Box Derby is Sat, June 4 

Over 40 derby cars will race to be Soap Box Champion in Delta’s inaugural Soap Box Derby in Tsawwassen on Saturday, June 4, 10 am–3 pm! Youth 9–12 years old will race a derby car sponsored by a local business down 6th Ave to the finish line on 52 Street. We invite you to come out and join your community in cheering on the racers! 

Bringing the classic kids race to Delta, the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen presents the event in partnership with the Corporation of Delta and all proceeds go back to the community.

Entries and sponsorship opportunities are now sold out. 

Traffic & Parking 

Vehicle access on 6 Ave will be blocked on June 4 from 7:30 am–3 pm. Course set up will take place from 7:30–9:30 am and it is important there are no vehicles parked on 6 Ave at that time. Police and Road Marshals will direct local traffic (strictly on an as-needed basis and between racing laps) to ensure residents can enter and exit their streets. Emergency service vehicles will have uninterrupted access. Pedestrians will be directed by Road Marshals at strategic crossing locations. 

We encourage spectators to walk or bike to the event to avoid traffic and parking congestion.
