The Austin Duck Derby is a rubber duck race benefiting the Austin Boys and Girls Club Foundation.
We also host a family friendly festival on the lawn just south of the Congress Avenue Bridge for friends to flock together to celebrate and watch the event live. In 2017, more than 17,000 ducks “raced” on Lady Bird Lake and the fastest ducks won fantastic prizes for their ducks' adoptive parents. This year for our 5th annual event, we are going to have 20,000 ducks available for adoption -- they sold out last year so be sure to buy yours quack-ly to not miss out!
