32nd Annual Rubber Duckie Race

Virtual for 2020
$10,000 top prize

COVID-19 got you down? Make it a Summer of Duckie

Get ready for an exciting virtual Summer of Duckie!

We won’t have an in-person festival. But we will have plenty of fun in store for Duckie season, starting with our theme: Choose Your Own Adventure. Click on the button to order your souvenir Duckies online.

Or buy tickets in person at Duckie Central, 610 Community Way (on the corner at Good Drive), Lancaster.

We have $10,000 in cash for the top prize, with other prizes that will be bigger and better than ever.

Ticket sales will end Sept. 12, and on Sept. 13 we will have a special virtual Duckie Race to draw winning tickets and announce prize winners.

One thing we’re super excited about this year: Our new Duckie Mobile. We will be driving to different locations in Lancaster to sell tickets and do other fun stuff — with proper social distancing, of course.

We have lots of fun planned throughout the summer. Check back here and follow our social media channels — Facebook, Instagram and Twitter — for all the updates.


We want to see your cute Duckie videos

Maguire Younes, one of our Summer of Duckie interns, has thrown down the video challenge. He made this Duckie video for us, and he wants to see who else has some video game. Use whatever video app works for you (Maguire used Tik Tok), post it as a comment to his video on our Facebook page, and we’ll see which video gets the most Likes — SO VOTE FOR THE SUBMITTED VIDEOS WITH A LIKE! Deadline to submit your video comment is July 18. Voting ends July 31. The person who submitted the video with the most votes will receive four single-day admission tickets to Dutch Wonderland.

Watch Maguire’s video to be inspired, then go create your own video!


Kick off the Summer of Duckie by watching this very special Duckie video featuring two intrepid Duckie adventurers, and let the fun begin!

Help us save on souvenir ducks

In an effort to reduce costs and streamline the ticketing process, we will again not be mailing any ducks. If you purchase tickets online, NO souvenir ducks will be mailed to you. If you would like to receive souvenir ducks this year, please purchase tickets at the Center or at one of our ticket sales locations.

Thank you!

  • Join the Duckie fun

    Ticket sales for the 2020 Rubber Duckie Race™ start July 1. There are lots of ways to connect with this year’s 32nd 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.

    Sponsoring the event. Businesses can partner with Schreiber by signing up to sponsor the race or the festival. Be a sponsor for as little as $100, or jump in at one of the higher levels and receive an array of premium perks.

    Becoming a volunteer. Saturday, Sept. 8: Teams needed to help us pack delivery trucks. Sunday, Sept. 9: Teams needed to set up and staff different parts of the festival and race and to tear down and pack trucks for the return. For details on all current volunteer opportunities, go to Current Volunteer Opportunities.

    Our thanks to these sponsors, without whom this event would be impossible.

    To sell tickets or be a sponsor, contact Erica Croce at 717-393-0425 ext. 105.

  • Several of our Duckies have a short children’s story written for them by Schreiber friend Kelley Waller, with Duckie illustrations by Sharon Tschudy. There’s a catch, though: We have goals that need to be met to unlock each of the stories. Visit the page for all the details.
