Chicago Duck Derby

Make sure you don’t miss the biggest race of the year! On August 8, 2019 at 10am over 60,000 rubber ducks will take a dip in the Chicago River for the annual Chicago Duck Derby! All of these rubber ducklings are racing all the way from 401 N Michigan Avenue to the Wabash Avenue Bridge to raise money for the Special Olympics of Illinois. The estimated finish time is around 1pm.

Each duck is sponsored by a loyal donor looking to support the athletes during their training and to help this great cause survive! If your duck crosses the finish line quickly you have the chance to win a 2019 Chevy Equinox, $2,500 in cash, an all-inclusive Apple vacation to Riviera Maya, Chicago Weekend Getaway, and NASCAR tickets!
