Throughout the year, dozens of special events find their home on the Naperville Riverwalk. Whether the Riverwalk Fine Art Fair, Jaycees Last Fling, charitable walks and runs, family reunions, business celebrations, story hours, carillon concerts or weddings, our city’s natural treasure creates a beautiful backdrop.

Only one event, however, is a fundraiser for the Riverwalk. And that’s the Riverwalk Duck Race.

In 2016, the Riverwalk Foundation brought back the Riverwalk Duck Race to help mark the 35th anniversary of the City’s pride and joy as well as educate about the detrimental environmental impact of feeding ducks, geese and other wildlife.

From now on, the annual Duck Race aims to continue its educational mission while creating awareness about the can-do volunteer spirit that began building the Riverwalk brick by brick in 1981.
