Beginning in 2014, Duckfest has provided waterfowl hunters from around the region a unique event catered to their passion for the outdoors and hunting. Steered by a committee made of passionate local business professionals and leaders, Duckfest has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity since its inception.
In 2017, Duckfest became a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit, further solidifying its place as an established, growing event.
Meet the Duckfest Board
Led by the Duckfest Board of Directors, the Duckfest Committee is comprised of community leaders and individuals who are committed to making a difference in their community. Working diligently to raise money for a great cause and to prepare our attendees for a party they won’t forget, putting together one of the best events in the Midwest!
Emmaus provides over 1 million hours of direct support services a year to help people with disabilities in St. Louis.
By participating in Duckfest, you are making a difference that will increase independence, inclusion, and self-advocacy in the lives of adults with developmental disabilities.
At Emmaus, we know that people with developmental disabilities want to be independent.
In order to do that, they need a community that embraces their unique abilities.
For over 125 years, as a faith-based organization, we have provided quality services, caring for the whole person for their whole life.
The problem is that services for people with disabilities are underfunded and understaffed.
We believe everyone deserves the resources to live independently.
