Annual Duck Derby
Saturday, August 17, 2019
The Duck Derby is a fun, annual event where participants "adopt" rubber ducks and then race them from Buzzards Bay into Allens Pond. The first duck across the finish line wins its owner the Grand Prize! But other ducks shouldn't be counted out—there are 40+ other fabulous prizes to win.
GRAND PRIZE: Dinner for two anywhere in the world (including round-trip airfare and lodging for two nights)!
Winners are announced the day after the race at the Duck Derby Festival, which also features amazing $5 BBQ, a silent auction, a plant auction, and live music!
For 2019, the race will start at mid-day on Saturday, August 17. Winners will be announced at the Duck Derby Festival, which will take place on Sunday, August 18, from 11:00 am–2:00 pm.
You do not have to be present to win.
All proceeds from this event support Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary.
