Gear Up for the 31st Annual Folsom Handcar Derby!

Get ready for a thrilling weekend at the 31st Annual Folsom Handcar Derby, happening on May 4th and 5th, 2024. This unique event, organized by the Folsom, El Dorado, and Sacramento Historical Railroad Association, brings together local businesses, groups, and charities for a spectacular race along East Bidwell Street at Broadstone Parkway.

Since its inception in 1992, the Folsom Handcar Derby has been a highlight for community engagement and friendly competition. Teams of five, including four pumpers and one pusher, compete to navigate their handcars across the finish line in the quickest time. The excitement doesn’t stop there; the event also features the Pushers Contest and the world’s only Quadripede racing!

Whether you’re competing or cheering from the sidelines, this event promises fun for everyone. All proceeds go to supporting the historical railroad association, ensuring the preservation and celebration of our local railway heritage. Come rain or shine, the Folsom handcar derby is an event you won’t want to miss!
