Duck Race & Festival
August 27, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
This year the Duck Race & Festival will be hosted at Wingfield Park from 10-4pm on August 27, 2022! The ceremonial ducks will race at 3pm, and we can’t wait to see you there.
The past two years have been a very different version of our Duck Race event due to the pandemic. But this year we are back to racing! We had record-breaking duck sales in 2020 & 2021, with more than 50,000 ducks sold per year, and we want to break another record this year for our shelter pets. To save pets and be entered in the chance to win a brand-new car or $10,000 donated by Carson City Toyota, purchase a $5 duck today! To buy your ducks now, visit our website here!
In addition to the ceremonial duck launch, we will also have lots of fun activities for the whole family including:
- Pet Adoptions
- Beer Garden
- Photo Lounge
- Food Trucks
- Vendor Booths
- Games for the Kids
- And so much more!
