Estes Park Duck Race Festival

The annual Estes Park Duck Race has returned over $3 million to local charities and organizations!

Learn more about our Duck Race Festival

The process is simple. You adopt a duck for $25, and $22 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 2022 Duck Race raised $$161,709 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!
