From mid-April to early June, local non-profit partners have exclusive ticket selling rights and keep 40% of their proceeds. The other 60% goes to the Rotary Clubs, which underwrite all the hard costs, with the help of our wonderful local sponsors. 

Tickets are $5.00 each and may be purchased from any of our participating non-profits, at the Ducky booth at upcoming events and prior to the race the day of the Ducky Derby. The first five duckies that cross the finish line win the ticket purchaser cash prizes of $1000.00, $500.00, $250.00, $100.00 and $50.00. Every ticket purchased has a chance to win $35,000.00 toward purchasing a car at Lindner Chevrolet

The annual Ducky Race, on July 4 is a cooperative effort between the Rotary Club of Cañon City and the Florence and Eastern Fremont Rotary Club. For the latest information about the Rotary Rubber Ducky Race, go to the Rotary Club of Cañon City’s Facebook page.
