The Stayner Duck Race is an annual event organized by the Stayner Kinsmen, a community service club based in Stayner, Ontario, Canada. The event typically takes place on the first weekend in May and has become a popular tradition in the town.

The event involves releasing thousands of rubber ducks into the Mad River, which runs through Stayner. The ducks are numbered, and participants can purchase a ticket that corresponds to a specific duck number. The ducks are then released into the river, and the first ducks to cross the finish line win prizes for their corresponding ticket holders.

The Stayner Kinsmen use the funds raised from the event to support various community projects and initiatives, such as local youth programs, community events, and charitable organizations. The event also provides an opportunity for community members to come together and enjoy a fun-filled day by the river.

In addition to the duck race, the event features various other activities and attractions, such as live music, food vendors, a beer garden, and children’s activities. There are also various prizes and giveaways throughout the day, providing additional excitement and entertainment for participants.

The Stayner Duck Race has become a beloved tradition in the town and attracts visitors from all over the region. It not only provides a fun day out for participants but also helps to support important community initiatives and promote civic engagement.
