A Tradition of Friendly Service for Generations



Green Granite Inn, a North Conway Hotel Wildquack Duck Race and River Festival in Jackson NH

Category: North Conway Activities

north conway events Since 1989, a strange phenomenon occurs each year in the Wildcat River at Jackson Falls. 3,500 bright yellow rubber duckies appear in the waters and go floating downstream, racing to the finish line. Thousands of people come to Jackson, New Hampshire each year to see this unusual spectacle, and hope that the duck they've sponsored wins one of fabulous prizes. It’s the annual Wildquack Duck Race, part of Jackson’s Memorial Day weekend festivities, and it’s definitely a must-see event.

The Wildquack River Festival not only offers a fun spectacle, but an opportunity to win prizes. Each year offers amazing prize packages, Silent Auctions, and other chances to win vacation stays, dining certificates, spa treatments, gift baskets, attractions tickets, gift baskets, art work, photos, and even a mountain bike.

Each year there are also plenty of yummy foods to eat, from barbecue to fair food like kettle corn, and ice cream, and New England favorites like lobster rolls. Don’t forget dessert! Jackson has its very own Cake Boss competition and visitors can taste the entries for $1. Whether you like to bake or sample, it’s definitely the most delicious part of the festival.

Other festival events include a talent show, parade, photos with the official Wildquack mascot, and the crowning of the Wildquack King or Queen. The festival begins at 7AM and continue all day. It’s easy to see why the Wildquack River Festival has become such a time-honored tradition for locals and visitors alike!

Green Granite Inn is just a short drive to the beautiful town of Jackson, NH and can be your hotel and home away from home for this family fun weekend.

For more information see the Jackson Chamber of Commerce website!
