The fan favourite demolition derby delivers bone crunching action that our spectators have come to expect. The two-day event, held on the September long weekend, attracts more than 100 participants each year from across the province (and even outside of Alberta!). Participants always have a great time and they never leave empty handed as a number of prizes are up for grabs. In addition to cash prizes, drivers can vie for the many coveted trophies including Most Aggressive, Most Sportsmanlike and the Hard Luck Trophy, to name a few. The Mudboggers also entertain crowds with mud-spraying speed and compete against one another for trophies and prizes. The Edson Hillbilly Demolition Derby and Mudbog has become a local institution with about 1,500 fans coming out to cheer on their favourite drivers every Labour Day weekend. The weekend is a place to have fun and spend some time in the mud, but safety is always paramount. There are rules that govern both the building of the vehicles and driving aspects of the event.
