Great Humboldt Duck Race
July 22 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
This year, due to low Humboldt water levels, the Duck Race will be held at Angel Park with the City of Elko Fire Department.
The annual Great Humboldt Duck Race is Northeastern Nevada Museum’s largest fundraiser. The community adopts their rubber ducks throughout the summer, and then we dump the ducks from the 12th Street Bridge when the river is just right. The ducks float to 9th Street Bridge where we wait to see which lucky ducky makes it to the finish line first. The winner receives $1500.
Everything Elko is sponsoring the Lame Duck Award for the last duck to cross the finish line. The Lame Duck wins $250!
The proceeds from the Duck Race fund our programs and projects throughout the year, like Second Saturday, Classic Film Fest in the park, Brown Bag History, and special exhibits.
Thank you for supporting Northeastern Nevada Museum. May the best duck win!
