California Duck & Bird Events, Fairs & Festivals
 


California Duck Festivals and Fairs include fundraising opportunities for communities to enjoy family duck-themed events. Duck hunting is also enjoyed in California as a recreational sport. We often receive duck and wilderness training course information from the California Department of Fish and Game.

 

To find out about the live duck hunting events, you can visit their web site (dfg.ca.gov/huntclinics). There are also wetlands and reserves where ducks are considered protected birds the public can enjoy watching in their near water habitats. Below is a list of events related to ducks and birds in California. Some events are involve actually watching waterfowl while other events may simply celebrate their existence. You may submit duck events to us at BEACHCALIFORNIA.COM.

 

We've scoured the net and found Quacks for Keet, Duck-a-thon, Duck Splash, Ducky Derby, Duck Race and Ken Ducky Derby. Hundreds to thousands of people turn out out for these popular events, and there are even companies that specialize in selling ducks to these events. Kids love them but adults go absolutely Quackers.
