2017 Duck Race raised and over $118,500 this year for our organizations! 

NEXT RACE: Saturday May 5, 2018. Please check back March 1, 2018 for full details and new site design!

The Estes Park Duck Race is held annually on the first Saturday in May. The 29th 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 $19 of what you donate will benefit one of charitable organizations 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 wonderful of prizes!

Please adopt a duck and help us reach this year’s fundraising goal. It’s a great community event with entertainment for the whole family, so be sure to be a part of it!
