Greenfield Soapbox Build Party

Greenfield Soapbox Build Party
Ray and Butch Brule, Turners Falls, 1949

Sunday, August 15, 2021, 11:00 am until 1:00 pm
Parking lot behind Greenfield city hall. Enter via alley from Main Street by smoke shop

As Sunday, September 12th -- the date of the Greenfield Soapbox Races -- gets closer and people are working to complete their carts on time, the planners of the derby have organized a soapbox "build party" outside of Half Pint Homes in the parking lot behind Greenfield's city hall this coming Sunday, August 15th, from 11:00 till 1:00, where people can come with their carts and get help from experienced builders of rolling tiny homes and soapbox carts.

Bring your cart in whatever shape it currently is in, and any other parts or materials you plan on adding, and prepare for a morning of creative planning and fun construction.

We will have extra parts on hand, such as metal tubing and bike parts, including a few wheels.

No RSVP is needed, unless you need confirmation of what will be available. Just show up with your stuff and let's see what can be done with it.

If you can't make this event, there is another build party the day before in Turners Falls on Saturday August 14th from 10:00 - noon in the parking lot outside Nova Motorcycles on 2nd Street.
