Join Us for Duck Day

Duck Day

Over the past 16 years, the annual Duck Race and Festival has taken place downtown Naugatuck with over 5,000 attendees. Duck Day created a fun-filled day where family and friends gathered, enjoyed great music, tasted yummy food, shopped talented crafters and business vendors, played games and rode carnival rides! All while they waited to watch the highly anticipated Duck Race, as thousands of rubber ducks were dropped by a payloader down the Naugatuck River and raced to the finish line with the first prize of $5,000 CASH!

On Sunday, June 5th the 17th Annual Duck Day and Race will return to an in person event! 1st Prize $5,000 Cash, 2nd Prize $1,000 Cash, 3rd Prize $500 Cash  and 17 other great prize packages.
