Ready! Set! Float!

During the Downtown Evergreen Dam Ducky Derby, thousands of bright yellow, rubber ducks cascade down Bear Creek from the starting line at the dam spillway to the finish line at Highland Haven Creekside Inn. 

Ducks can sell out, so buy your ducks now. Then get downtown early on “derby day” to enjoy this special event. Fun activities are available in the main parking lot starting a few hours before the race. Take some time to shop and dine throughout the day. But, if you want to see the ducks do their thing, find a spot along Bear Creek by 1pm.

That’s when, from high atop an 85 ft ladder fire engine, numbered ducks are dropped into the creek to start their downstream adventure. Eager fans gather along the bank hoping their lucky duck wins. And, no wonder. Cash prizes are on the line for the top three finishers, plus quite a few lower placing ducks also earn wonderful prizes. Winners are notified at the Dam Ducky Derby closing ceremony in the main parking lot.

Buying ducks not only gives contestants a chance to win, but duck sales also help Downtown Evergreen offset the costs of the Annual Downtown Evergreen Holiday Walk. In addition, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Evergreen Animal Protection League, a local nonprofit that serves the mountain community.
