Time Remaining Before the April 29th 2023 Race:

The 23rd Annual Duck Race is Rain-or-Shine and will be held on Saturday, April 29th, 2023.

20,000 rubber ducks are dumped into the Pawcatuck River on the Westerly RI and Pawcatuck CT border, for an annual race that benefits dozens of local charities. Children's games, bounce house, food booths, and other activities make this a wonderful family event! The annual Pawcatuck River Duck Race helps local Schools and non-profits raise money for their individual worthy causes, typically raising more than $60,000 for the groups involved.

More than 90 great prizes are available to the winning ducks, including the grand prize of a trip for a family of four (2 adults & 2 children) to Disney World that includes hotel, air & park passes, or $2500 in cash. Each year the event draws thousands of spectators to downtown Westerly-Pawcatuck & continues to captivate a large audience of local children & families. It's a perfect setting for your business to be recognized as a generous community partner.
