Annual Squirrel Box Derby

Low res for viewing only

Our 7th Annual Squirrel Soap Box Derby is just one of many venues. This gravity race is the only legal opportunity in Brevard where you can try to break the speed limit down Jailhouse Hill! All vehicles are hand built and decorated to please the crowd, as well as designed for speed. Contestants compete for trophies for the fastest critter, the squirreliest theme, and the nuttiest design. In addition, businesses fight to win the overall Golden Nut Trophy, which combined speed and design.

Discover Downtown Brevard

Experience the home town feeling in downtown Brevard. As a vibrant hub for the arts, the downtown is also the crossroads to exceptional outdoor recreation, connecting to national and state forests. Home to the white squirrel, the downtown is host to several annual festivals and special events (including the White Squirrel Music Festival, the Squirrel Box Derby, and the Old Time Music Competition). Catch the home town spirit and visit Brevard and the “Land of the Waterfalls”, Transylvania County.
