What is the MadRock Duck Derby?

MadRock Duck Derby is a grassroots economic collaborative partnership between the Berea Chamber of Commerce and the City of Livingston, KY. This event was brought to life to offer two very distinct, but beautiful and charmingly unique small towns (nestled at the foothills of the Appalachian mountains), an opportunity to gain independent revenue sources without the dependence and reliance on fixed income sources or limited local funding, that could hamper their economic aspirations and innovative tourist-attracting ideas.This partnership offers expansion of commerce, community revitalization projects, business growth and development, and the development of unique events through partnering and sharing in the workload, which produces a stronger outcome. The Berea Chamber of Commerce and the City of Livingston are excited to demonstrate how rewarding it can be when entities work together toward a common goal, and demonstrate how these goals benefit their respective communities.Your participation in this event is an exciting opportunity to get involved and make a very large scale impact – one duck at a time.

Summary: One duck number will be randomly pre-selected by our payout provider before the race. The race will take place and the first five ducks to cross the finish line will be noted. If the randomly pre-selected number matches the number on one of the first five ducks that crossed the finish line, that duck’s adoptee (purchaser) will win $25,000.

This is a game of chance and a $25,000 winner is not guaranteed at this event.

Do I get to keep my adopted duck(s)?

No, you do not get to keep your duck(s). They will be training hard before the derby and after the derby will head to the flocker room to debrief and strategize for next year’s race!
