About the Lumsden Duck Derby

Raising money for the Lumsden Sports Association

The Lumsden Duck Derby is a fundraiser

Held each labour day weekend in September.

The Lumsden Duck Derby is an annual fundraising event hosted by the Lumsden Sports Association. Proceeds from the Duck Derby support capital expenditures of the Lumsden Sports Centre. The Sports Centre provides recreational activity including hockey, figure skating and curling to Lumsden and the surrounding communities.

Each year on Labour Day, up to 25,000 numbered plastic ducks are dropped into the Qu’Appelle River that winds through the scenic valley town of Lumsden. The first 20 ducks to cross the finish line win valuable prizes for their owners. This year you could be the winner of $1,000,000!

You can purchase your tickets at a number of places in Lumsden, SK and Craven, SK. You can now also purchase tickets online.

Who does the event raise money for?

The Lumsden Duck Derby raises money for Lumsden Sports Association. Funds raised are used to pay for new capital expenditures at the rink and keep fees at a minimum for all users of the facility

2020 Tickets available soon.

Available to Saskatchewan Residents Only.

About The Lumsden Duck Derby

The Lumsden Duck Derby is a fundraiser held each Labour Day weekend in which 25,000 rubber ducks will race down the Qu'Appelle River, with the first twenty (20) ducks rewarding their owners with a prize!

The Lumsden Duck Derby raises money for Lumsden Sports Association. For example, last years duck derby along with a new provincial matching grant program managed to raise over $40,000 to help pay down the mortgage on the new ice plant and ice-resurfacer at Lumsden's community-owned and operated ice rink, helping to keep down the cost of hockey and figure skating for local families.

Attention Loyal Lumsden
Duck Derby Supporters!

We have appreciated your support for 32 years and we hope you are able to support us again in the future.  Unfortunately, our ducks are remaining in self-isolation this year, but hope to return in September 2021.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we decided to postpone our 2020 event.  We want you to know that the safety of our fans and volunteers is important.  If restrictions lift, we will consider a fundraising event where all proceeds will go towards the 2021 event.  Keep an eye on our social media for more information.

Thank you for understanding and please stay safe!
