Rotary Duck Race Festival

Help Support the Art Center by Adopting a Duck!


Each Spring the Estes Park Rotary Club sponsors the Duck Race Festival for the benefit of local non-profit organizations. The Art Center is one of the participating organizations. When individuals purchase a Duck Race ticket and designate the Art Center as the recipient, a major portion of the ticket price is returned to the Art Center.

The Estes Park Rotary Duck Race Festival is held annually on the first Saturday in May. The 31st Annual Duck Race continues a tradition started in 1989, which has returned more than $2.4 million to local charities and organizations.


The process is simple. You can adopt a duck for a fee of $20 each ($22 for an online adoption) and $19 for every duck you adopt will benefit the Art Center of Estes Park.


Please adopt a duck and help us reach this year’s fundraising goal. To adopt a duck, drop by the Art Center of Estes Park in lower Stanley Village, call our office at 970-586-5882 or go online at


Be sure to choose THE ART CENTER OF ESTES PARK (#7) as the organization to be benefitted.
