Every year since 1997, Portland’s finest freaks have pulled their home-built creations to the top of Mount Tabor and let gravity guide them to the bottom of the hill.
The Portland Adult Soapbox Derby continues to be a beloved summertime tradition at Mt. Tabor Park—a community event that draws crowds of 7,000-10,000 people to watch a colorful and sidesplitting spectacle of 40+ coaster cars powered only by gravity, whimsy, and attitude. Camaraderie abounds as some teams focus on speed and engineering (Science!). Some on crowd pleasing or simply shit talk (Art!) and still others find a place in between.
The teams race down the course three times before the championship rounds. Winners receive awards for speed, engineering, art and other categories at the end of the day. The competition makes for an exciting day enjoyed by spectators of all ages who are invited to get comfortable and enjoy the race at no admission cost.

The second annual Drop Box Derby, a one-day design build competition using salvaged materials.
This friendly, festive event (Portland Block Party meets Iron Chef) will feature local Portland cider, fine dining food carts and live music.
LAST REGIMENT bring in the judges at 2:00pm
This event will host ten teams of 2-4 members each. Each team will receive identical batches of salvaged (mostly wood) material and a set of parameters. Teams will have 4 hours to design and build a piece. A panel of 4 judges will select the top three designs for which prizes will be awarded.
While sipping cider and rubbing elbows with builders and makers, attendees will be able to bid in a silent auction on pieces as they are being made. All proceeds will go to Sisters of the Road.Eastside Esplanade
The 3-Course Challenge features three distinct courses with varying degrees of difficulty: easy, moderate, and difficult. Each of the races are run on grass, dirt, sand roads and trails; no pavement, though there is a little mud. Okay, more than a little. A giant mud hole, nicknamed "Clear Lake" is the highlight of the course for most of the runners. The mud on their faces, splashed across their competitor's number, and coating their running shoes is like battle scars at the end of the race, symbol of victory, proof of their conquering the quest! The Last Regiment drums the sound of victory!Camp Rilea
