If you love Iron Chef for the creativity and competition, you are a DIY fanatic, a design junky, or a fan of Portland's quirky, innovative, and unique talent, then grab your friends and family and head down to the east waterfront this Labor Day for the 2nd Annual Dropbox Derby, Portland's design-build challenge!
27 teams of builders, artists, and designers will compete to create a unique work out of salvaged materials according to a chosen theme. Teams receive a brief 24 hours before the competition with a list of salvaged materials each team must use, as well as the theme for the year. Teams have the following 24 hours to prepare and plan their design with the hope of winning this year's competition. Beginning at 10 the next morning, teams will race the clock to bring designs to life. The work will be built right before your eyes. Immediately following the 2:00 final bell, judging will begin. Judging and awards ceremony will be followed by a silent auction with all proceeds benefiting Oregon Tradeswomen, an organization “dedicated to promoting the success for women in the trades.”
This is a family-friendly and free event and will feature food, drink, and live music! This year’s event will feature food from The Spicy Spoon, Aybla Grill and Fifty Licks Ice Cream. Beverages will be provided by Cider Riot, StormBreaker Brewing and Portland Roasting Coffee. Enjoy bands Los Palmeros, the Ukeladies PDX, and the Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers.
