Say goodbye to summer at Casper’s Riverfest and The Great Duck Derby. What began in 1992 as a celebration of the completion of the new segment of a riverfront trail has turned into an end-of-August staple in Casper, and it remains the major fundraiser for our community’s integral trail systems. 

Riverfest takes place at Crossroads Park by the North Platte River and it is free to enjoy live music and festivities. In addition, you can purchase tickets to enjoy a regional selection of craft beers from local breweries such as Skull Tree Brewing, Gruner Brothers Brewing, Frontier Brewing Co. and much more. Tickets are also required to enter The Great Duck Derby - a giant rubber duck race down the North Platte River. The grand prize winner walks away with cash and local bragging rights, but there are dozens of other winners of various prizes up for grabs.

This year the Riverfest and The Great Duck Derby will be held on Saturday, August 10th, 2024. Click here for more information and for tickets.
