Ducktona 500 Family Festival

This all day event located in River Park culminates in our famous Duck Race, where thousands of plastic ducks race down the Sheboygan River for cash prizes. In addition to the ever-popular Antique Car Show and Boat Show (with over 300 entries), there’s a full day of fun for families. Special events for children include Kiddie Big Wheel Races and Pony Rides.
Food, Fun, and Live Music!
