Celebrate Art in Transylvania County

July 4th Virtual Duck Race

Sponsor Ducks, Win prizes, & Support the Arts

You're Invited

Transylvania Community Arts Council invites you to make a splash during our first-ever Virtual Duck Race on July 4th, 2020. The annual fundraiser supports arts programming in Transylvania County, including Art in Schools, the Pottery Studio, and the TC Arts Gallery. With every Racing Duck Sponsorship, you help TC Arts provide outstanding arts opportunities and cultural events in our vibrant, creative community. 

Support the Arts in Transylvania County

Now more than ever, TC Arts needs your support as we face significant challenges to our programs and public events.  By sponsoring a duck, you not only get to participate in a summer past time, you provide yourself the chance to win prizes and the satisfaction of supporting the arts in Transylvania County. 


Make a Splash!

The Duck Race has always been a splashing good time during Brevard's July 4th Festival. We all gave a collective sigh when this year's festival was canceled to protect our community and visitors. In support of our community, TC Arts has shifted the family-fun filled fundraiser to a virtual race. You can sponsor racing ducks now until June 28th. We will create an action-packed duck racing extravaganza video to live stream on July 4th at 4 pm. Winners will be announced at the end of the race and informed by email as well. You do not have to watch the live stream event to win. 


Get Some Ducks in the Race!

Sponsorship begins at $10 for 5 Racing Ducks. Every duck that paddles King's Creek has the chance to win cash prizes and gift certificates that support local arts businesses. Waddle you do with your winnings?
