View the list of 2021 winners >

Duck Derby is a fun annual event where thousands of rubber ducks—sponsored by individuals just like you—are released on an incoming tide for an epic race from Buzzards Bay into Allens Pond.

With fierce determination, they fight their way to the finish line where the first five to cross win Grand Prizes! Many other lucky ducks will claim fantastic runner-up prizes, including a special honor for the "Slacker Quacker" (the last duck to finish the race). ​

This beloved event supports Mass Audubon's ecological and outreach projects.
