KINGSTON ARTISTS SOAP BOX DERBY – Sunday, August 14th, 1pm  
The Parade route from Corner of Spring and Broadway to TR Gallo Park
The Kingston Artist Soapbox Derby, now celebrating 27 years, is a parade of non-motorized kinetic sculptures capable of rolling down lower Broadway in Kingston, NY. It is an event that brings professional artists, the creatively inclined, families and friends together to show off their wild, wacky, and original soapbox creations.
Cash prizes, gift certificates and one-of-kind artist designed trophies are awarded in various categories and are judged for their creativity, originality and engineering.  At the end of the “race” live performances add to a day of fun that concludes with a wacky and entertaining awards ceremony in TR Gallo Park, where participants receive prizes and spectators have the opportunity to get last looks at their favorite soapbox cars, lined up post-parade on West Strand and will get a chance to pick their favorite for the People Choice Award.
