About The
Duck Fest Derby

The 18th Annual Duck Fest Derby presented by JM Family Enterprises is one of South Florida’s premier charity events. On March 9, 2024 children of all ages will enjoy a free, family-friendly, Duck DMC-themed festival filled with “quacky” activities in the KID Fun Zone including the KID Olympics, face painting, petting zoo, live entertainment, delicious food trucks, and more.

Then 40,000 rubber ducks will be dropped in the New River to race for prizes and in support of our mission. Community members can buy entries in the race by forming “Duck Teams” or adopting individual ducks for $5 each for a chance to win one of our fabulous prizes including the grand prize of $10,000.
