Fun for the entire family, the Soap Box Derby race is FREE for kids 7 to 17!

What is a Soap Box Derby? Race head to head down a 300′ long course on “coaster” cars provided by local sponsors.

Bring your bike helmet and a parent to sign the release of liability.

The cars have steering and brakes and the kids control them. The course has “start ramps” for the fearless kids or those that are a bit timid can start below the ramps. The course is lined with hay bales and volunteers (more still needed) help to keep the race safe and flowing.

Spectators have many options along the course to hang out in and even have dinner.

North Fork Championship VII

The North Fork Championship; an adventurous kayaking event that is located at the gateway of Garden Valley, the North Fork of the Payette River. “They said it’s the rowdiest white water event in the world. Maybe it is, but that’s just how we do it in Idaho.” -Ryan Bailey

Idaho has some of the most beautiful scenery. The quiet serenity of Idaho’s Mountain ranges are home to many peaceful locations. For outdoor enthusiasts, it can also be the source of wild fun! Garden Valley offers everything from kayaking adventures to hiking up to peaceful hot springs.

“It’s beautiful. There’s not many places left on the planet that have the attributes of Idaho. When I arrived in Idaho for the first time, and drove up to the South Fork of the Payette, I got on this wave and I parked there and I knew I was home. I ended up actually moving to Idaho. It’s this combination of wilderness and no people.” -Gerry Moffat
