Fun For All!

The Kingston Artist Soapbox Derby, now celebrating 22 years, is a parade of non-motorized kinetic sculptures capable of rolling down lower Broadway in Kingston, NY. It is an event that brings professional artists, the creatively inclined, families and friends together to show off their wild, wacky, and original soapbox creations.

Early in the day participants park their creations along Broadway making final preparations, while thousands of spectators come to watch each car roll down the hill, one-by-one. Vendors and live performances add to a day of fun that concludes with a wacky and entertaining awards ceremony near the Visitors Center, where participants receive prizes and one-of-kind artist designed trophies and spectators have the opportunity to get last looks at their favorite soapbox cars, lined up post-parade on Lower Broadway in front of the Visitors Center.

The Kingston Artist Soapbox Derby is a truly unique family friendly event that promotes the arts and draws participants and spectators alike from far and wide. Beyond the day of the event, the Derby sponsors workshops for participants who need some extra help and encourages local community organizations to join in the fun and build a soapbox car as a team.

The Kingston Artist Soapbox Derby supports the local economy by bringing many new and returning faces to Kingston.[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text]

History

For nearly two decades, the Derby was a labor of love for its founder, Donskoj & Company, Each year, George Donskoj and Nancy Schneider Donskoj organized an army of art volunteers to deliver the festival with little budget beyond the cost of prizes.

The Derby now lives under the umbrella of Hudson Valley Community Productions a 501c3 nonprofit and is run by Sarah Bissonnette-Adler and Sarah Olivieri, the Derby Directors of Chaos! They are joined by a fabulous group of volunteers who are committed to returning the event to it’s former glory with a goal of attracting 10,000 spectators and 20-30 entries![/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” class=”cs-ta-center” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_button type=”flat” shape=”pill” size=”jumbo” block=”true” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”https://kingstonartistsoapboxderby.com/register/” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””]Join the Fun!
