    2. 2020 Redmond Derby Days Booth Application

      Celebrating 80 years, Redmond Derby Days is a summer festival rooted in the spirit of competition that celebrates the uniqueness of Redmond through parades, races, contests, game booths, carnival rides, arts, music, food and much more! It all started in 1940 as a bike derby and parade for the community to raise money for holiday decorations and athletic equipment. Today, Derby Days celebrates Redmond's diverse community and offers all ages a chance to participate in a fun summer festival setting.

      2020 Theme
      We are asking Booths to incorporate this year's “Time Machine Mashup” Derby Days theme into their entry. This theme connects Redmond to the history of Derby Days, the decades gone by, the traditions that have united us in the past, and the future of our community. The inspiration for décor is unlimited as any decade fits the theme! 2020’s Derby Days is our 80th annual Festival too. Need some ideas? Contact us, we would be happy to help.
