Until the 2016 Duck Race! 



Each duck you adopt will also paddle down the Fall River on May 7, 2016 to help your choice of 64 beneficiary groups. $19 of every $20 supports charities and groups that enhance the quality of life for so many in the Estes Valley.

The Estes Park Duck Race is held annually on the first Saturday in May. The 28th Annual Duck Race continues a tradition started in 1989, which has returned more than $2 million to local charities and groups.

The process is simple. You adopt a duck or a flock of ducks for a fee of $20 each ($21 for each online adoption) and 95% of what you donate will benefit the charity or group you select at the time of adoption. The more duck adoptions sold by the individual charities, the more money they can raise!

But, that’s not the end of the story! The all-volunteer Duck Race Committee has solicited financial support from Major Sponsors and Associate Sponsors. These generous sponsors help us offer the fabulous Major Prizes.

In addition, our local merchants provide hundreds of prizes with values of $20 and up that will be matched to the numbered rubber ducks as they paddle across the finish line on May 7th.

On-line adoptions coming soon, check back after the New Year! Please adopt a duck and help us reach this year’s fundraising goal of $133,000. It’s a great community event with entertainment for the whole family, so be sure to be a part of it!

Adopt a duck!
