Estes Park Duck Race Festival

Race Day is May 7th, 2022

The annual Estes Park Duck Race has returned $2,932,802 to local charities and organizations!
Learn more about our Duck Race Festival

The process is simple. You adopt a duck for a fee of $22, and $19 for every duck you adopt will benefit the charity or organization you select at the time of adoption. The more duck adoptions sold by the individual charities and organizations, the more money they can raise! Our 2021 Duck Race raised $118,579 for our organizations!

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 fabulous Major Prizes. In addition, our local merchants provide hundreds of wonderful prizes!

Please adopt ducks and help us fundraise for our wonderful local non-profits. It’s a great community event with entertainment for the entire family, so be sure to be a part of it! See our Duck Race Festival Schedule of Events.

Thank You Duck Race Sponsors!

Our Sponsors are the main support of the Major Prizes. Their generous donations offset many of the costs of operating the Duck Race and help us return $19 of each adoption to the local charities and organizations. Thank you!
