  • Thank you for a fantastic 2021

    We are grateful to everyone who supported the 2021 Rubber Duckie Race during the Summer of Duckie. From sponsors and other donors who supported Duckie to all the ticket sellers and buyers, you all bought every one of our 20,000 Duckies and donated more than $120,000 to Schreiber this year, making it likely the most successful Duckie race ever! We can’t say it often enough or loud enough: THANK YOU!

  • Join the Duckie fun

    Ticket sales for the 2022 Rubber Duckie Race™ will start July 1. 2022. There are lots of ways to connect with this year’s annual race and festival and support the kids of Schreiber.

    Selling tickets. Every year, hundreds of Schreiber friends pick up stacks of tickets and bags of ducks to sell to family and friends. And we have businesses that agree to sell tickets to their employees or their customers. There are prizes for selling the most tickets, so join the fun and be a Schreiber duckie seller.

    Supporting the event. Businesses and Community Organizations can partner with Schreiber by becoming a sponsor or vendor for the event. Contact Becky Link, Special Events Coordinator, at or 717-393-0425, ext. 105 for more information and opportunities.

    Becoming a volunteer. Saturday, Sept. 10: Teams needed to help us pack delivery trucks. Sunday, Sept. 11: Teams needed to set up and staff different parts of the festival and race and to tear down and pack trucks for the return.
