Ducks Away! Join the fun on Saturday, May 7, 2022 in Estes Park for the 34th annual Estes Park Rotary Duck Race Festival.

“Adopt” a little yellow plastic swimmer for $20 ($22 online) and watch the flock “swim” to the finish line. The fun happens along the Fall River, beginning at Nicky’s Steakhouse where thousands of ducks will hit the water at 1 p.m. The finish line is in downtown Estes Park, in George Hix Memorial Riverside Plaza.

Each adoption will support an Estes Valley participating organization that you select. Beginning March 1, adopt online at epduckrace.org, or in person from any participating organization right up until 12:30 p.m. on race day in Estes Park. Each duck you adopt gives you a chance at winning one of hundreds of prizes, including major travel awards. You do not need to be present to win a prize, but you will want to be there for a day of music, food and feathered fun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. See epduckrace.org for a full schedule and to adopt your own duck.
