Event Details

The Greatest Spectacle in Rubber Duck Racing!

It may not be the Indy 500, but it’s just as exciting to see which lucky duck takes the checkered flag. Join us this year on Sunday, June 4 for the Broad Ripple Duck Race.

FREE children’s activities will be set up on the Rainbow Bridge overlooking the Broad Ripple Canal on Guilford Avenue north of Westfield Boulevard for families to enjoy from 3:00 to 5:00pm. Promptly at 4:30, three thousand rubber ducks will enter the water at the Start Line where the Monon trail crosses the Central Canal. The ducks race west down the canal towards the Finish Line located by the pedestrian bridge near College Avenue.

Proceeds support BRVA programs and projects focused on enriching the community, attracting investment, amplifying public spaces, and improving quality of life in Broad Ripple.

Join the fun!

To participate in the Duck Race all you have to do is purchase a duck or paddling of 6 ducks and you are entered in the race. You can purchase ducks at the Duck Race or at various BRVA events in May and June. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The prizes are gift cards from Broad Ripple merchants. First prize is valued at over $500. We will announce the winner by the name and you do not have to be present to win.

Buy your duck and get in the race!

Ducks are only $6 each. Increase your chances of winning by buying a paddling (6 ducks for $30). Ducks may be purchased with cash or debit cards.  Credit cards not accepted due to Indiana State Law.  You must be 18 years old to purchase a duck as the race is considered a gambling event.

Ducks may be purchased at the Duck Race, at the BRVA office, at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market starting in May, or at other BRVA events.


(Sunday) 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm(GMT-04:00)


Free to attend at watch. Ducks may also be purchased at the event from 3-4:30pm.
