This year we’ll be racing the rubber ducks on the morning tide on Saturday, August 18. Then bring the whole family to the post-race Duck Derby Festival the next day on August 19.

What’s the big deal? Only a Grand Prize of dinner for two, anywhere in the world, with round-trip airfare and 2 nights’ lodging included! In addition, Mass Audubon will purchase an offset of the carbon cost of the roundtrip flight for the grand prize Duck Derby winner in partnership with NativeEnergy through Help Build™ carbon offsets.

There’s also 40+ other fantastic prizes! 

Race Details

The ducks will paddle on the incoming mid-day tide from Buzzards Bay into Allens Pond. The Grand Prize winner will be announced during the post-race festival the next day. 

You do not have to be present to win.
