Join us for Rubber Duck Derby!



Rubber Duck Derby has grown into one of Second Harvest’s largest fundraising events. Held during the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festival in New Orleans, the Duck Derby is a fun and easy way to engage our community in the fight against hunger. This highly visible, family friendly event attracts a huge crowd to watch thousands of yellow ducks racing along the Bayou!

To participate, individuals ‘adopt’ a rubber duck for $5 (or a quack-pack for $25) and get a chance to win great prizes if their duck is one of the first to cross the finish line. This year’s grand prize is a $5,000 cash prize; second place is a $1,000 gift card from Rouse’s.  Click HERE for complete details on the Rubber Duck Derby!


The Rubber Duck Derby is presented by Capital One Bank, with sponsor support from Zatarain’s and the Rotary Club of New Orleans.
