Magnolia Street Soapbox Derby

Magnolia Soap Box Derby 2019
April 13th, 10a-5p
Washington Park, Macon

On your mark, get set, GO!  The second Saturday of April brings out the competitor in everybody as teams of homemade soapbox racers vie to be named the fastest and most creative cars in a thrilling race down the steep hill of Magnolia Street, beside the College Hill Corridor’s beautiful Washington Park in one of InTown Macon's friendliest neighborhoods. Coupled with the park's inviting early-spring blossoms and great live music, the derby not only brings out competitors, but hundreds of spectators and fans who enjoy a full day in the park with picnics and pets.  Always family-friendly, the Magnolia Street Soap Box Derby is full of activities for children, including big wheel races, and is host to on-site local vendors and food trucks, for those who prefer to picnic with the convenience of no packing.  It's a springtime afternoon of wholesome, old fashioned fun in historic downtown Macon, Georgia, and racers and race fans of all ages are invited to participate and join the merriment at 10am on Saturday, April 13, 2019.  Be there to see--or be one of--Macon-Bibb's best good-sports in action at the Magnolia Street Soap Box Derby!
