DUCKY DERBY 2020 Street Fair and
Festival Park Farmers Market

Sunday, August 23rd (Rescheduled from original date)

Downtown Castle Rock

Festival Park - at Perry & 2nd Street
"Family Fun for Everyone"
Join the fun on August 23rd in conjunction with the Festival Park Farmer’s Market by Local Colorado and the Ducky Derby and Street Fair.  The Farmers Market opens at 8:00.  At the Market, you will find a carefully curated assortment of local, handcrafted foods, art and crafts provided by local Colorado vendors.  Come for lunch and enjoy food from several local food trucks and beer on tap at the beer tent.
The main event for the day is the Ducky Derby, where thousands of numbered rubber Duckys are released into Plum Creek at 1:00 and they “race” a half mile to the finish line.
The first ten Duckys earn cash prize money for their ticket holders.  In addition, the winning duck provides the ticket holder a chance to win a new car.  

Each $5 donation to the Rotary Club earns a ticket for one Ducky. 


Five Ducky’s can be sponsored for a donation of $20.

The Ducky Derby is the largest annual fundraiser for the Castle Rock Rotary Clubs including the Rotary Club of Castle Rock and the Castle Rock High Noon Club.
