GREAT DUCK DERBY AND

RIVERFEST

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. But you can also buy tickets to enjoy a regional selection of craft beers as well as tickets to participate in the Great Duck Derby. Tickets for the derby enter you into a giant rubber duck race down the North Platte River. The grand prize winner walks away with cash, but there are dozens of other winners of various prizes up for grabs.

Save the date for this year’s Riverfest on August 17, 2019.
