Duckfest is a family-friendly, day-long community fundraising event that celebrates ALL things outdoors with an emphasis on waterfowl hunting and conservation. Free admission, live music, grand-prize raffles, a variety of vendors, delicious food and plenty of drinks to go around with a great crowd all combine to make this a fun-filled day for all who attend! Duckfest also features a sanctioned Duck Calling Contest.
Each year, we strive to bring you nothing but the best in entertainment. Performances from well known local bands and musicians like Trixie Delight, Molly Lovette, Joe Dirt and the Dirty Boys and more keep the party going all night long. There is no limit to who we might bring in to give our attendees the ultimate party experience!
Jimmy and the Chets
Duckfest will rock on all day with music from Matt Arana in the afternoon and Jimmy and the Chets in the evening.

1) We will keep in contact with you about any changes that occur with the event.
2) This year, in lieu of the required vendor fee, we will request a suggested donation of $200.
