Sumerduck is a small rural village located equidistant between Fredericksburg, Culpeper, and Warrenton, in Fauquier County in the U.S. state of Virginia.

Colloquially referred to as "the Duck," this community is the home of the Sumerduck dragway. According to Sumerduck Trading Company, hunting, four-wheeling, and metal detecting are the most popular activities in this area, the latter due to its proximity to major conflicts during the American Civil War. Sumerduck is home to the major portion of C.F.Phelps Wildlife Management Area, with several entrances to the reserve off of the major thoroughfare, Va Route 651. Sumerduck is also home to Rogers Ford Farm Winery and Smith's Antiques.

The Sumerduck Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
