Are You Ready to Race?


Join your Northeast neighbors and folks from all over the Twin Cities at the 3rd Annual Push Cart Derby at Waite Park on September 10. Put together a team of three people, build a sturdy cart and bring it to the Waite Park field at 11:00 to enter the race. The winning team in the derby will receive $200! Second place will receive $100 and third place will receive a sweet swag bag filled with prizes and coupons from area retailers and other groups. There will also be a $100 prize awarded for the Most Creative push carts.


  • Build yourself a durable cart that can be pushed on grass and can turn. 
  • Get together a team of three people, two pushers and one "driver" (All team members must be over 10 years of age and members under 18 must have parent/guardian approval, all team members must wear helmets to participate).
  • Join us for registration at 11:00 AM at Waite Park to register your cart and begin racing!
  • Need help? Join us on August 13 for "Learn the Basics of Building a Push Cart" workshop on August 13, at 1:00 pm at Columbia Gardens (3301 Central Avenue NE).

Get your friends and neighbors together and buckle up for an afternoon of racing. Hang around after the Derby and join in the Fall Festival with food, music and games for the kids.

You can find more information as well as rules and regulations with an entrance form at the 2011 Push Cart Derby page.
