Castlethorpe Duck Race

Celebrating 30 years!!!!


Following the latest advice we have all received from the Government regarding Coronavirus we are taking the difficult decision to POSTPONE the Castlethorpe Duck Race and Fun Dog Show until next year.

The new date will be ‪the Sunday 6th June 2021‬.


Duck Race - Sunday, 6th June,  2021


The Castlethorpe Duck Race is one of those events which will make you and your family smile.


Just 5 miles from Central Milton Keynes, something ‘pure’ happens every other year . We release 1000 ducks into the River Tove. Will your duck be first to cross the line to win you a cash prize?


Castlethorpe Duck Race is a unique event in Milton Keynes and as well as duck racing, we have live bands, a beer tent, lots of great food to choose from. There will be many and activities to keep the kids amused – and all in a glorious setting by the river. So come and spend an afternoon with us and…well a few ducks! Entrance is free and there’s free parking.


Oh, and don’t keep this to yourself. Please tell friends, family and work colleagues.
