The Dam Ducky Derby, now in its eighth year, annually draws 3,500 visitors to downtown Evergreen with food and festivities throughout downtown, trolley horse rides on Main Street and the Duck Drop at Evergreen Dam.

How does it work? A fire truck drops numbered ducks from above the dam to the creek below. As the rubber ducks race down Bear Creek, spectators follow the flow of thousands of ducks as they approach the finish line at Highland Haven Creekside Inn. Children help collect the ducks in their baskets so they can compete again next year.

Anyone may participate by buying one or more uniquely numbered ducks. The winning ducks numbers are documented as they cross the finish line and cash prizes and sponsor gifts are awarded to the owners of the speediest ducks.

SHUTTLE SERVICE: Three shuttle buses will run between Downtown Evergreen and the following parking locations: Church of the Hills (across from the library at Buffalo Park Road), Hiwan Museum (RTD lot on Meadow Drive), and the RTD lot near Christ the King Church (Hwy. 74 near Dedisse Park). Three buses mean shorter wait times!

Want door-to-door shuttle service?

The RTD Call and Ride “Green Bus” is available on a first-call basis each way within the Evergreen Metro District. CALL A FEW DAYS AHEAD to make your reservation—303.944.5777.
