When you stay in one of our Duck Creek Village Cabin Rentals, it is as if the hustle and bustle of the outside world disappears. While your main objective during your vacation may be to explore our gorgeous landscape, we encourage you to attend one of the local events or festivals. One of our favorites is Duck Creek Days.

3 Reasons Why You Need to Go to Duck Creek Days
Fun for the Whole Family
Duck Creek Days is an event people of all ages are sure to enjoy! Arts and crafts booths are set up for the kids to get creative, and game booths are set up among vendors for a little extra fun. There are also bounce houses, a giant slide, a climbing wall, and even carnival rides. Let the kids run free while you sit back and enjoy some live music on the stage by local bands. By the end of the night, everyone is up dancing! One of the main Duck Creek Days events takes place Saturday afternoon: the Duck Derby. Attendees can buy and race toy ducks down the creek! There are also raffles throughout the weekend. This year’s main drawing hasn’t been released yet, but last year’s was an ATV!
The fair food at Duck Creek Days definitely makes the event worth visiting! Local food vendors line the outsides of the meadow, giving plenty of options so no one will go hungry. The vendors change every year, but you can be sure to expect all the usual fair foods like fried dough, hot dogs, and candy apples. The main food event is the Duck Creek Days Chili Cook-Off where people come from all over to taste the chili. The judging begins Saturday at noon, then the public is free to taste!
