Duck and Pig Races!
Catch the Feather-Raising, Squeak-Worthy Events!
Maris Farms brings back the crowd favorites, racing pigs and ducks in the month-long event to raise money for the Fisher House and Seattle Children’s Hospital. Place a bet on your favorites in the form of a donation to the charity and receive a special gift. If your racer wins, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a special prize provided by our sponsors.
Races are held every hour between 12-4 PM, Saturdays and Sundays in October.
For the pigs, the season’s races progress into a series called the Triple ‘Pig’ Crown series patterned after the famous Triple Crown races in horse racing. Visitors will be able to wager on their favorite pig and will receive a numbered raffle ticket. At the end of the race, a ticket will be drawn from the winning pigs slot and that individual will win a prize from one of our sponsors
The month-long event raises money by allowing people to place bets on who they believe will win each race. Those bets are given in the form of a donation. Each “betting” participant receives a special pig nose and if their pig wins the race, they’ll be entered into a drawing for a special prize provided by our sponsors. To date, the Maris Farms Triple ‘Pig’ Crown event has raised more than $23,000 for St. Jude during its 9-year run.
