It's Seafair's largest summer boat race... on Green Lake! Come help kick off the Season of Seafair . There is no better way to get the summer celebration started than joining the fun and excitement of the Denny's Seafair Milk Carton Derby. The Derby offers a memorable day for participants and spectators, as nearly 100 creative and wacky milk carton watercraft compete for prizes.
For those looking to stay dry, there will be plenty of activities on shore as well. Make sure to check out the different exhibitors and food vendor offerings, and to cheer on your favorite boat!
Any craft whose design and intent is primarily speed like skulls, kayaks, surfboards and racing type catamarans will be placed in this category.
A special category for our military community, at least one crew member of the milk carton craft must be active duty military.
Any style entry other than racing, military or commercial. This category is for entries where design took precedence over speed in the construction. It is still however a race to the finish.
- Groups & Commercial - $250 Entry Fee
This category is for groups & Commercial entries. A $250 entry gives your group or company the opportunity to race with a company name, logo or slogan on your vessel. Take the challenge and race to glory on the formidable waters of Seattle's Green Lake. A minimum of 100 half-gallon cartons or their equivalent is required. This category is not eligible for Showboat or other major prize drawings. Entries must meet the conditions of the Open category.
NOTE: The racing category is for entries designed for speed. The open category is for entries where design and creative use of milk cartons is the primary purpose but this is still a race. The showboat award is not opened to sponsored groups/commercial or military entrants.
