Join in the famous Stockbridge Duck race and raise money for charity

This year’s fabulous Stockbridge Duck Race will be taking place on Sunday 29th June at 3pm.

This is a popular annual event is held to help raise money for local charities. This year, the monies collected will be donated to Lifecare and St Columba’s Hospice.

All ducks are numbered and released into the Water of Leith from the the main bridge at 3pm, then caught by duck wardens further down stream. The first lucky ducks to cross the line are noted and the owners are awarded a prize generously donated by many businesses.

The ducks are now on sale for £1.50 including:

Also watch out for the 25 silver ducks to celebrate the 25 year anniversary!

Spread the word about the Edinburgh race of the year and contact the organisers via their Facebook group if you can donate any prizes.

A great fun day out for all the family with the added benefit of raising money for charity. The team at the Antiquary will be hosting this year’s Après Duck party and a kids disco in the Bailie Bar at 5pm which is great fun for kids.

We’ve lost count how many duck races we’ve witnessed over the years, but whatever the weather, it’s always a fantastic family event.
