August each year
Since 1972, First Street in Downtown Langley has been home to some of the speediest and wackiest “soup box” racers one day every fall. Anyone can build a racer that can make it down a hill. But the Soup Box Derby is all about ingenuity, creativity, and a little bit of that Langley weirdness.
Come check out the wacky designs and costumes that participants will wear in the wildest race on the island. And if you’re up for it, enter the race along with your friends.
The goal of the event is fun for everyone; let your imagination run wild–as long as you follow the rules.Thinking about entering? Great! Just remember, the Soup Box Derby has one, and only one, purpose: FUN! This is not a speed or performance competition. It is not a competition at all. In the proud tradition of Soup Box Derbies as far back as its roots, the sole reason for the event is to meet your friends, be as creative as you want to be, and celebrate and enjoy life.
