Hobart Lakefront Festival

August 16-19, 2018—Festival Park 

Featuring many fun activities including the Dam Duck Race—with a grand prize of $1,000—and the Dam Duck Tape & Cardboard Regatta, over 100 vendors showcasing the tastiest treats that you can find, some of the most unique craft vendors around, live music and craft beer garden!

When you hear the words ‘Dam Ducks’ you might think of those pesky critters making their home in your swimming pool, but if you are from Hobart you get super excited for their biggest and best event of the year!

The Hobart Lakefront Festival is home of the “Dam Duck Race” where over 6,000 rubber duckies are spilled over the dam on Lake George and race to a finish line where one lucky duck will win a grand prize of $1,000. The Lakefront Festival is a staple in the Region, and they are celebrating their 27th year of ending summer vacation with a bang.

The Dam Duck Race isn’t the only fun and unique thing to do at the Lakefront Fest. If you’re crafty or just looking for a fun team building exercise, register for their “Dam Duck Tape & Cardboard Regatta”. They challenge you to construct a vessel out of cardboard and duct tape and paddle through an obstacle course on Lake George. This event is just as fun to watch as it is to participate in.

If all of that isn’t enough, we have over 100 vendors showcasing the tastiest treats that you can find along with some of the most unique craft vendors around. So come on out, grab a bite to eat, shop local goods, catch the soulful sounds of one of the eight bands performing throughout the course of the weekend and wash it all down with their biggest beer garden of the year.
