2022 Duck Race & Festival

The Ducks are Back on August 27th!

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!

In addition to the ceremonial duck launch, we will also have lots of fun activities for the whole family including:

Pet Adoptions
Live Music by:
-Lacy J. Dalton
-Greg Austin
-Sun Ray's
Beer Garden
Photo Lounge
Food Trucks
Vendor Booths
Games for the Kids
And so much more!


Please note that the physical ducks racing do not determine our grand prize winners. All winners are drawn at random electronically.

The Duck Race provides Nevada Humane Society with essential funding that ensures we can continue our life-saving work to care and find homes for Northern Nevada pets in need. We thank you for your incredible support of this year's Duck Race!

About NHS: Nevada Humane Society is a non-profit organization that is entirely reliant on donations, community support and grant funding. NHS is proud to be the only open-admission, no-kill shelter in Nevada meaning we take in any animals regardless of age, illness, or past trauma. In 2007, NHS became a no-kill shelter and launched a bold effort to help Washoe County become a life-saving community. In 2014, NHS expanded life-saving efforts to include Carson City, by opening a shelter there. Today, more than 130,000 animals have been placed into loving homes since 2007 and NHS continues to grow, maintaining its status as one of the leading animal shelters in the country for saving homeless pets –having helped more than 16,000 animals in 2020 alone.

Join us on August 27th to participate in our day full of fun! The event will start at 10am with fun for the whole family including:

  • Live music featuring Lacy J. Dalton with other entertainment provided by Greg Austin, the Sun Ray's, and JJ Christy with K-Bull 98.1
  • Our Beer Garden sponsored by Pinon Bottle
