Annual Duck Derby

Duck Derby
Where would you go?

Save the Date—Saturday, August 18, 2018

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 2 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!
