    Epilepsy Awareness Day at Elitches and the Purple Duck Chase 2024

    June 8

    Join us for the 8th Annual Epilepsy Awareness Day and Purple Duck Chase at Elitch Gardens, honoring our Everyday Heroes! This is not a walk or run, just a fun day raising awareness and painting the park purple. 
    Sponsor your Ducks!  Ducks are $5/duck, 5 Ducks for $20 and 15 Ducks for  $50.00.  Not necessary to attend to sponsor your ducks.  Those participating in the Purple Duck Chase and Epilepsy Awareness Day at Elitch Gardens 2024 will be granted early admission to the park at 9:00 through a private entrance to watch as sponsored ducks race in Elitch Garden’s Lazy River. No admission into the park without paid admission or valid season pass.  Duck assignments are shown below and are updated weekly.
    Tickets into the park are $35 per person and include an event tshirt, however, we cannot guarantee exact sizes for tshirts for those registering after July 10, 2023. WALK UP REGISTRATION IS NOT PERMITTED – YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY ELITCH GARDENS RATE OF $60+. We will have a table set up outside the main gate from 7:30 – 9:30 AM for you to pick up tickets, tshirts and tickets to the Meet and Greet. If you are not able to pick up during that time, you can pick up any ordered tickets through Elitch Garden’s Will Call. 
    Also included in your admission is an Ice Cream Social from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm where we can gather at the Sunlight Patio Pavilion and get out of the sun and meet other amazing families in our community! Ice cream and beverages will be served from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm. You must be registered through this site – even if you have seasons passes – to participate in the Ice Cream Social as this is where we will get our count.
    Prizes will be awarded to the holders of the First, Second and Third duck to cross the finish line.
