Due to COVID-19 this year we will be hosting the Duck Race virtually! 

The Rennie’s River Duck Race has been a St. John’s tradition since 1988, attracting large crowds to the banks of Rennie’s River. Help us celebrate at our Family Fun day! Then join us river side to watch up to 2,500 of Rennie’s yellow rubber ducks race down the river to the finish line. The first ducks across the finish line win one of 3 prizes for their sponsor.

The Annual 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.

We hope you can join us!
