Akron’s Family Day at the Derby

Be sure to get your tickets before they’re sold out!

All-American Soap Box Derby at 789 Derby Downs Drive Family Day is a thrilling day of intergenerational racing. Grandparents race grandchildren, aunts and uncles race nieces and nephews, parents race their kids, and siblings and friends race each other down the hill in individual soapbox derby cars. Participants of all ages are welcome, but children must be at least 7 years of age, 46” tall and able to operate a car on their own to race. Your ticket will get you a ride down the Hill and entertainment at this fun day at the races. Food trucks will be on sight for a snack or dinner, so you can get what you want and spend what you want on refreshments.


Tickets are $5 (for adults or children) and may be purchased from the Active Adult office at 220 South Balch Street in Akron, 44302.
