Event Information

The three-day event raises much needed funds for AltaMed's Huntington Beach Community Clinic, where thousands of uninsured and medically underserved patients are treated every year!The Duck-A-Thon™ begins Friday evening with a Sunset Wine Tasting at the Pier. This beautiful setting provides as a wonderful kick-off for the weekend. Local restaurants supply an array of tantalizing hors d’oeuvres while wineries from across California donate boutique wines that are poured all evening.The actual Duck-A-Thon™ takes place all day Saturday & Sunday. Vendors line Huntington Beach Pier Plaza to sell arts & crafts, yummy treats, home décor, jewelry and much more.A larger – than – life Children’s Area includes bounce houses, retired rubber duck decorating, games, a toddler’s zone and prizes!Each year the Duck-A-Thon™ has a new theme for the ducks and the overall event. This year our “Beachcomber” Ducks, wearing hand-made seashell necklaces and spiffy blue sun visors, will highlight a “2011 Beachcomber Bash”.You can help support the health of your community! Instead of the usual raffle tickets, attendees are asked to purchase rubber ducks! You get to name your duck and wish it well, before it is tossed off the Huntington Beach Pier with 4,000 friends, into the waves to race to the shore in the surf.On Saturday, over 4,000 baby duckies (the traditional size rubber duck) turn the tides yellow as they race to dry land! The first 60 baby ducks to shore win their owners a prize. “Beachcomber” ducks win their owners two prizes!On Sunday, Corporate ducks compete for the coveted Golden Duck Traveling Trophy. Corporate ducks are larger rubber ducks and there is only one winner in this race.
