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 the spirit of friendly competition and offers all of Redmond an opportunity to enjoy a fun, summer festival.
The 2023 Derby Days Grand Parade celebrates Redmond businesses, community organizations, and residents! The Grand Parade is dedicated to upholding the City of Redmond’s commitment to sustainability. In alignment with those efforts, all parade entries must be human or animal-powered.

Exceptions will only be made for electric or RNG (renewable natural gas) vehicles to be used for accessibility reasons.
