The Village of Avoca was established in 1882. We’ve celebrated several community events over the years. But one of the finest was our Centennial Celebration in 1982. Over 100 years our little Village has been able to keep its population between 220 – 250. The 34th Avoca Duck Races is in the record books. The Annual “QUACK OFF” is always on the last Saturday of January. What started out as a bar room bet between two windy men, has now become a population explosion for this little Village. One day a year this small Village has over 2,000 folks experiencing the small town life. We are “Small Town Proud” of Avoca. Visitors are always welcome.
