Duck Race


The Annual RBC Rennie’s River Duck Race is a fundraiser for the Quidi Vidi / Rennie’s River Development Foundation. Funds from this event help support the environmental education, conservation and stewardship initiatives of the Quidi Vidi / Rennie’s River Development Foundation.



The Duck Race has been an annual tradition since 1988, attracting large crowds to the banks of Rennie’s River, to watch up to 3,500 yellow rubber ducks make their way down the river to the finish line. The first ducks across the finish line win prizes for their sponsor.
