Once again the Duluth Harbor will be host to the world’s largest rubber duck this summer.

The Festival of Sail Duluth will host Mama Duck in August as part of its festivities. The duck last visited Duluth in 2016 as part of the Tall Ships Festival.

“Mama Duck has a soft spot in her heart for Duluth and is excited to return to Lake Superior,” said Craig Samborski, executive producer of Festival of Sail Duluth. “The world’s largest rubber duck inspires us to enjoy the world’s waterfronts and conserve our natural resources for future ducklings.”

The Festival of Sail Duluth is slated for Aug. 11-13, but will not be at Bayfront Park this year. According to the event map, ships will be docked along the shore from the Great Lakes Aquarium to the Minnesota Slip Bridge and from the Minnesota Slip Bridge to the Duluth Ship Canal.

Tickets are on sale now ranging from $10 for a single-day festival only pass to $150 for the parade of sail day sail pass. Tickets are not refundable or transferable and don’t guarantee access to all ships at all times.
