The Ruddy Duck Brewery and Grill is proud to announce our Fourth Annual DuckFest Beer & Music Festival on Sunday, September 29th from 1pm to 6pm. DuckFest is a fundraising event based on the German celebration of Oktoberfest, complete with live music, craft beer from various Maryland breweries, authentic scratch made German cuisine and a variety of children and adult games and activities. DuckFest is a family friendly event with plenty of fun for young and experienced (you’re not old) alike!!
The Ruddy Duck Brewery and Grill and our sister operations Ruddy Duck Seafood and Alehouse, Canards Catering and Cone Island Ice Cream have a long history of supporting the community. With the DuckFest we combine our love of entertaining, serving great food and superb beer with our desire to do good for our community. With the help of our sponsors, in the past three years we have donated and raised over $85,000 for the United Way Calvert County and other nonprofit organizations.
100% of the proceeds of our Fourth Annual DuckFest will benefit the United Way of Calvert County and Maryland Fragile X Resource Group. The United Way provides support to 38 partner agencies in Calvert County and funds programs in areas of Education, Financial Stability and Health so that change is possible for struggling families in our community. Fragile X is the leading cause of inherited mental impairment and the “only” known cause for autism. If affects over 100,000 Americans with the full mutation and over 1,000,000 in its various mutations.
The Maryland Fragile X Resource Group offers support for families struggling with Fragile X, engages in advocacy efforts in Annapolis and Washington DC, and funds research.
