Austin Duck Derby

2019 AUSTIN DUCK DERBY

Saturday, August 3rd, 2019

Lady Bird Lake, Ann Richards Congress Avenue Bridge

10 AM – 12:00 PM

The Austin Duck Derby is the epitome of a fun (and funky) event characteristic of Austin. At this rubber duck derby benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area and the Austin Boys & Girls Club Foundation, Austinites show up in flocks to bear witness to thousands of eco-friendly rubber ducks launching from the S. Congress Bridge. In 2018 more than 19,000 ducks “raced” on Lady Bird Lake, the fastest ducks winning fantastic prizes for their duck adoptive parents. By sheer magnitude, this quacky event is a sight to behold. Don’t miss the chance to be a part of this one-of-a-kind, family-friendly event by adopting your own duck(s) when they go on sale later this year, by joining us on August 3rd for the big launch, or by sponsoring the Duck Derby and supporting BGCAA and all the kids we serve!
