Reedy River Duck Derby

The 19th annual Reedy River Duck Derby is set for Saturday, May 6th, 2023 at 2:30 PM

The 2023 Duck Derby will be a 'back-to-normal' event and an opportunity to see the kinds of projects Reedy River and Rotary International take up in our community on a regular basis.

Adoptions can be made through their website for $10 per duck or $30 for five entries (Quack-Pack). The Rotary Club of the Reedy River Greenville will once again partner with Publix for the grand prize of one year’s worth of groceries. A full list of other prizes may be found on the race website.

“Everyone enjoys Derby Day in Falls Park and the chance to win a prize,” said Rotarian Bobby Brown. The funds raised are a direct infusion into organizations which know the needs of the community and can expertly fill them.”

The Rotary Club of Reedy River Greenville, a service organization of local businessmen and women, holds the Reedy River Duck Derby annually as its primary community service project. This is the 19th annual consecutive year that the group has organized this charitable fundraiser. 100% of the Derby profits go to local charities.

Rotarians traditionally develop community service projects to address many of today’s most critical issues, especially children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. Rotary Club members worldwide work to achieve the key Rotary objective of “Service Above Self.”

*Admission is free into the park, but duck adoptions should be made online in order to win prizes*
