Broad Ripple Duck Race

Congratulations to our 2020 winners:
  • First Place $750: Todd Morris
  • Second Place $500: J. David Jarvis
  • Third Place $250: Linda Elkin

In early 2021 we will be determining if we can return to our beloved Duck Race in the Canal or if we will instead conduct a virtual raffle.


In these challenging times we have struggled with how to run our beloved Broad Ripple Duck Race during a pandemic.  Since the Race draws over 5,000 people to the event, we have concluded that we just cannot hold the Race this year.  However, to continue the tradition, we have decided instead to conduct a What the Duck, 2020? Raffle!

You will find details below, but you still have a chance to win the What the Duck, 2020? Raffle! We will be selling raffle tickets at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, and if your lucky number is chosen, you will win gift cards from Broad Ripple merchants and Broad Ripple merchandise!

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

Due to the pandemic, we cannot have the usual water race this year.  Instead we will have the What the Duck, 2020? Raffle!  To participate in the raffle, all you have to do is purchase a raffle ticket and you are entered in the drawing. You can purchase tickets at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market or the BRVA office.   The Market is held Saturday mornings from 8 am to noon at 6179 Rural Street.  The BRVA office is located at 818 Broad Ripple Avenue and is open Tuesday 1-4 pm and Thursday 8-11 am.

Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The prizes are gift cards from Broad Ripple merchants plus Broad Ripple branded merchandise. First prize is valued at over $750.  Second place is valued at $500 and third place is $250.  You do not have to be present to win.

Buy your raffle ticket and get in the race!

Raffle tickets are only $5 each.  You can also buy five tickets for $20.  When you purchase five raffle tickets, you receive a souvenir rubber duck!  You receive your duck at the time you purchase your raffle tickets.

Raffle tickets 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.
