Community Events

The Westport Village Society hosts a number of events each year to support our mission. They include fundraisers for specific projects, as well as community outreach designed to share information about the natural and cultural history of the local area. Local history presentations, WVS meetings, and other community forums are held at the community hall on Abalone Street next to the school.

Westport Great Rubber Ducky Race

We regret to inform you that the Annual WVS Great Rubber Ducky Race has been SUSPENDED for the past few years due to the pandemic. This event has been held most years since 1992 on Mother's Day at the Campground at Wages Creek. This event is the primary WVS fundraiser held every year on Mother's Day since our nonprofit was first organized. This fun-filled family event raises money for WVS programs. If you'd like to help us stage this fun-filled family event working with your neighbors, please send us an WVS.

This family event traditionally features three ducky races, food, baked goods, mimosas, flowers for mothers, raffles, music, and prizes for kids. Perhaps you have other ideas to contribute, along with the energy needed to make them happen!
