Duckfest Vendor and Sponsorship Opportunities Available
Portage Des Sioux - The 2023 Duckfest is set for Saturday October 7, 2023, at the Missouri Wing - Commemorative Airforce Hanger at Smartt Airfield. This year will be particularly special as it is the 10th anniversary of Duckfest.
Duckfest provides a great way to celebrate the waterfowling heritage and importance of the Confluence to waterfowlers and waterfowl alike while supporting GRHA’s mission as GRHA is one of four non-profits that the money raised at DUCKFEST supports.
One of the most exciting elements of Duckfest is exclusive giveaways. An ATV, water well, pallet of beer, trained puppy, firearm or cash, you never know what to expect at our raffles and auctions. Be prepared to take your chances to win some sweet prizes!
