About This Event
Since 2010, LivingADK has held the annual Duck Derby as our major fundraising event. Thousands of rubber ducks are released into the Moose River near the covered bridge and dam in Old Forge on SR 28 on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Come and join the fun with music, grilled hotdogs, face painting, corn hole and the excitement swirling around the event. Adopt a single duck for $5 or a "Flock of 5" ducks for $20 and cheer them on, as the speediest duck can win you one of 18 wonderful prizes donated by our generous local business owners. Starting mid-June through Labor Day weekend, ducks can be adopted at the Friday Old Forge Farmers Market or at the Old Forge Visitor Information Center. All proceeds go towards LivingADK in our mission to promote healthy, vibrant and growing communities in the West Central Adirondacks.
