Event Details

YAK Youth Centre has been helping to meet the needs of Perth and area youth since 1996!  One of our most visible and successful fundraising efforts is the Annual Tay River Duck Race, held during the Stewart Park Festival on the third Sunday in July at approximately 2pm.

Hundreds of spectators attend the annual dumping of the rubber ducks into the Tay River, and dozens of children run along the river banks as the ducks ride the current to the finish line. Each numbered duck matches the numbers on the raffle tickets sold in advance of the race, with prizes going to the first few ducks to cross the finish line.

100% of the money raised from this fundraiser goes directly to YAK Youth Centre programs.  Find us at www.yakyouth.ca or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Please join us for this fun community event!  Buy your tickets early to support a great local cause and to have a chance at winning a prize!
