Hoffman Irrigation & Idlewild Ruritan Soap Box Derbies

Soap Box Derby

bigThe original Federalsburg soapbox derby took place from 1965 to 1974 . It was for boys only and they built their cars from scratch and raced down West Central ave. The modern day Delmarva Soapbox Derby which started in 2002 and is still being held the 1st Saturday in June every year is put on by the Federalsburg Vol. Fire Co.. We still race down West Central Ave. but now it is for boys and girls ages 7 to 18 and their cars come in kit form. We also started a special kids race last years where kids race down the hill in a 2 seat car with a past champ driving. We offer 3 divisions of racing and the winners go Akron ,Ohio to race in the world championships.
