Welcome to the official website of the
Orléans Soap Box Derby!
It is with sadness and disappointment that we announce that the 2015 edition of the Orleans Soapbox Derby has been postponed due to insufficient funding and competing priorities. Similar to other events in the Orleans area, we are currently working on restructuring to ensure that this event comes back stronger and better than ever.
Although our event will not take place during its normal time frame, we encourage you to participate in other races being held this year. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (613) 720-4416 or by email at Ottawa@hotmail.com.
President, Orleans Soapbox Derby
Calling all racers!
On your marks! Get set! Go! This is an open invitation for kids to compete in the 9th Annual Orléans Soap Box Derby being held all-day on Saturday -TBD-. The race is open to all kids in Orléans and surrounding area who are between the ages of 7-107.
You can find detailed specifications for how to build your own soapbox car
along with links to purchase ready-to-assemble kit packages on our website.
Mom and Dad get your kids involved and have a blast!
Dear parents, join us and allow your children to live this extraordinary experience! Always bearing in mind the safety of your children, they will race down the Orléans Boulevard (located between the St-Joseph and Jeanne d’Arc boulevards) aboard their soapbox car. Furthermore, they will receive a medal of participation, an OSBD T-Shirt and a free meal. Also, trophies will be awarded to the winners of the different categories! Therefore, encourage them to take part in this event and enjoy a fun filled day!
The Orléans Soap Box Derby is looking for volunteers
