City Signature Events
The City of Redmond offers two City signature events each year that are fun, free, and open to the public. Derby Days is a summer festival held each summer on Redmond's municipal campus and Redmond Lights is a celebration of art and light each winter in Downtown Park. Learn more below.
Redmond's historic summer festival began as a bike derby and parade to raise money for holiday decorations and athletic equipment and continues today in the spirit of friendly competition and community. Learn more about this year's event at redmond.gov/DerbyDays.
