family fun day out in Ballater

CONTACT: Mike Forbes


The Ballater Duck Festival will take place on Sunday 4th June 2023. It’s a family fun day on the village Greens in the centre of Ballater on Royal Deeside involving over 40 trade, craft and food stalls and kids’ fairground rides. As well as the local shops, restaurants and cafes, there are food stalls on the Green. The Ballater Pipe Band plays and there’s a 20-piece brass band, culminating in a giant inflatable duck race on the River Dee at 3pm. A Tote operates if anyone fancies a ‘flutter’ on one of the ducks.
