The 2022 Greenfield Soapbox Races is a fundraiser for the Greenfield Recreation Department's FIREWORKS FUND. We are trying to raise $5000 for that annual event.

Soapbox Race Day is Saturday, May 7th, 2022, with no rain date. First race is at noon, and racers should arrive starting at 8:30 to check in. Fill out this application and pay the fee on the next page (via PayPal) or send in a check or money order for the entry fee and signed waiver to Greenfield Soapbox Races, c/o Greenfield Recreation, 20 Sanderson Street, Greenfield, MA 01301. Applications must arrive no later than noon on Wednesday, May 4th. Only the first 60 applications will be accepted.


Entrants must be 8 years or older on Derby Day. Entrants under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Applications without a signed waiver will not be accepted. No exceptions. You may also download and print the paper form, if you prefer. Racers can also find the RACER RULES on the home page of the website, which are required reading for the race.

Lastly, because parking will be tight, we ask if you can minimize the footprint of your delivery vehicle. In the form below, let us know how you will be bringing your cart to the site.
