Frostburg Derby Day

Sponsored by the Elks 470, this July 4th celebration provides an opportunity for children ages 9-12 to steer soapbox derby cars down Main Street in a double-elimination format. The event builds confidence and promotes family involvement: building a car, practice runs, dinner, parade, and recognition ceremony. Hundreds of spectators line Main Street to watch and enjoy this small town venue. Members of the Elks volunteer year-round to ensure that the event is a success. The Elks submitted a project application to the Foundation in November of 2021 to help off-set their rising costs. The project was accepted. Do you enjoy Derby Day? Make a tax-deductible donation so that the kids and the cars can roll off the ramps for years to come.
