The Great Duck Derby is a day of FREE family activities featuring the famous rubber duck races! Lots of fun things to see and do! Hundreds of little rubber ducks race through "Alice's Pond" in Mead Garden while the crowd cheers the lucky ducks across the finish line to win cool prizes! The Duck Derby is a wonderful opportunity to discover or rediscover Winter Park's hidden treasure! See and experience what makes Mead one of the most beloved spots in Winter Park… from its running creek and wildlife critters to the beautiful camellia and butterfly gardens.
The Great Duck Derby will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (park gates open at 9:30 a.m.).
Adopt a duck for $5 or get a Quack Pack — buy 4 ducks for $20 and get a 5th duck free! Ducks adoptions take place at the Garden on Derby Day or at the Winter Park Farmer's Market on Saturday, February 15.
Admission, parking and other activities are FREE thanks to our generous sponsors. We also thank the many, many volunteers who help organize and run the event activities! Thank you all!
