The Gueydan Duck Festival Association is a Registered C(3) non profit corporation and consists of a 15 member Board of Directors elected by it’s paid membership each October. The Board of Directors elects within itself a President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. In many cases, these positions are held for more than one year however they must be voted on each year. All positions are completely volunteer. Membership is open to the public with no limits as to location or domicile. Some of our members actually live out of state. Nomination to the Board of Directors requires a minimum of 1 year membership in good standing. The Duck Festival Park is owned by the Duck Festival Association along with an additional 10 acres which is a target of future development. Our large pavilion houses most of the activities for the Festival while additional buildings on the site are used for storage. The park is set up to accommodate 52 campers for special events with water and 35 & 50 amp electrical service. Parking is serviced by a separate Parish owned 10 acre site that was donated to the Parish by Arco for Festival use. Proceeds from the Duck Festival events seed scholarships for Gueydan Graduates and benefit local school functions, youth activities and other local non profit causes throughout the year.
