Adult soapbox derby, racing for the benefit of our community park!

Mission: Our mission is to provide a fun event for the entire community that is family friendly and enjoyable for all ages. Our primary goal is to have fun! The race is also a benefit for Pioneer Park improvement projects. We  raise money through donations, race sponsorships,  racer fees, and vendor contributions that are used to fund improvement projects at Pioneer Park in Nevada City, CA.

What is the Park Project?  Pioneer Park is a beautiful park. Children and adults alike enjoy the recreation opportunities it offers. Our goal is to raise money to help fund additional amenities within the park. Current ideas include refurbishing barbecue areas, additional seating areas around the pool, and a multiuse (bicycling/jogging/walking) pathway within the park boundaries. Past projects include a new bocce ball court, seating areas, additional safety barricades for public events, baseball field improvements and financial commitments towards longer term park projects. Additional ideas are welcome!

Why a soapbox derby? Our community is filled with hills, and amazingly talented individuals. A soapbox derby is a fun event that is GREEN! It is a GRAVITY POWERED event, fueled only by the creativity and imagination of the participants!
