Sponsor a Duck in the 2022 Annual Northville Duck Race

The 33rd Annual Northville Duck Race will be held on Sunday September 18th at Mill Race Village. Duck sales begin at 12 pm on that day outside the General Store in the Village, and the race itself begins with a ceremony at the Gazebo at 3 pm. This event is one of the highlights of the Northville community year. In addition to being entertaining, and a focus of activity for the weekend, the race also raises a modest amount of money that goes toward the upkeep of Mill Race Village, and to funding further events in the community.

 

The Duck Race comes at the end of an afternoon of historical activities at the Village including children’s crafts, a cake walk, Victorian children’s games,  tours of our historic buildings and many other family games and activities. The Duck Race itself attracts upward of 500 people from Northville and the surrounding communities, and far more than that visit the village during the weekend. We are hoping to grow this event, and this year, with the enthusiastic support of the Heritage Festival organizers, we are sure that more people than ever will be drawn to the activities.

 

We are once again offering local businesses an opportunity to participate in this wonderfully quirky community event in a way that adds to our resources, and also adds to the fun. In addition to our ‘standard racing ducks’ we are planning to add special ducks to the race. Although these won’t be eligible to win prizes, each company that contributes a Special Duck will also receive mention in our advertising materials, on social media and on our website.


Special Ducks

We have special ducks at two sponsorship levels:

  • 4” Special Ducks for $100 

  • 12" Huge Special Duck with company logo for $250

 

Obviously the 12" ducks will make more of a splash than the 4” ducks, but the more ducks on the river, the merrier! 

Look at the available Special Ducks below and make your choice. Use the form to sponsor your Special Duck. If you have any questions, contact the Duck Lady or add a comment to your sponsorship order. 

NOTE: These ducks are for sponsorship only. They will not be eligible to win the race. Regular ticket sales will commence in Mill Race Village at Noon on the day of the race. 

Examples below (but if you don't see an appropriate duck, let us know on the form and we'll do our best to find one).
