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.
We are asking Parade Entries 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.
Trophies will be awarded in the following categories:
Community/Non-Commercial: Category includes members of schools, religious and fraternal organizations, service clubs,
unions, non-profit organizations, or city personnel.
Commercial: Category includes firms or organizations in the business of supplying goods or services.
Be inspired! All parade entries are encouraged decorate their entry to compliment the theme being be highlighted this year. The goal is to have fun and be creative! Need some ideas? Please contact us and we would be happy to help!
