What are Bed Races?

Join us for the 6th Annual Phoenixville Bed Races!

Taking place on Saturday, November 4th, 2023!

Grab your friends, family, or colleagues and Fall Into BED this November. This super fun, family-friendly event will raise funds and awareness for all the great work accomplished by two Phoenixville organizations that provide shelter for the homeless. Participants will construct and decorate racing beds (yes - beds on wheels) and race for the title of 'Fastest Bed'!

Now more than ever, these local shelters are working hard to support our community - but they need YOUR help!

Join us on November 4th to support those who work tirelessly to make sure that no one is without a bed to sleep in.
What to Expect
A fast-paced, fun and crazy day!

Race teams will build, decorate, and race beds on wheels down Second Avenue in Reeves Park to raise funds for our two nonprofits. Beds are elligble for the three top prizes of Fastest Bed, Best Team Theme, and Fasests Raise (most funds raised).

The day will include the races, kids activities, music, great food, and community!
Event Schedule
Event day kicks off at 11:00 AM when you can view the beds and vote for your favorite bed theme prior to the races. Racing begins at 12:00 Noon and will run until about 2:00 PM, with the awards, raffle prizes, and other fun events sprinkled throughout.

How It Works

This exciting event is BACK and promises to engage the community in a fun and adventurous way. This event is a collaboration between two local nonprofit organizations which work tirelessly to make sure that no one goes without a bed to sleep in at night.

We have three goals:

1. To have fun.

2. To raise awareness about organizations who work to help our neighbors in need.

3. To raise funds for these organizations so that they can continue to do this important work.

By registering a bed in one of our two categories (Business or Community), not only will you have a chance to show off your creativity and racing skills, you will have a chance to provide direct support to programs that aid homeless or at-risk neighbors in our community.

BUILD a racing bed on wheels, decorate it to match your chosen theme, and adorn your team with matching costumes!
(We reward creativity!)

RAISE funds for the event by peer fundraising through!

RACE to raise funds and awarness for our organization - while competing for the title of FASTEST BED!

Race Course Information

Ready... Set... Race!
Bed Teams will race down 3rd Avenue from the Starting Line at the intersection of B Street & 3rd Avenue, down towards interstection of 3rd & Starr Street.

But wait - that's not it!
Beds will then have to turn around and race back up 3rd Avenue back to the Finish Line!

Racers - Keep this turn in mind when designing those beds!

Beds will be raced on the roadway (pavement) and need to follow our Bed Building Guidelines.

Bed Team Drop Off & Registration
All Bed Teams must be dropped off on THIRD Avenue (Reeves Park Side) at B Street.
Teams will check in at the registration tent and then be assigned a line up position up on 3rd Avenue (between B Street and Main Street).

Public Vote
Spectators will vote in a public ballot for Best Overall Bed Theme & Team Costumes.
Voting takes place between 11AM and 12PM. BE CREATIVE! 



The 2020 Phoenixville Bed Races benefit two non-profits serving the homeless and at risk individuals in our community. By partnering, we hope to support each of these organizations that strive to provide housing, support services, and much needed aid to our neighbors in need.
