Avon Heritage Duck Tape Festival

This year's Annual Avon Heritage Duck Tape Festival is June 19 through June 21, 2015. Quirky and fun for the whole family: from a parade featuring floats made out of Duck Tape, a Ducktivities arts and crafts tent, to life-sized Duck Tape sculptures and a fashion show. Also food, rides, games, and live entertainment.

Admission is free. The first 500 tourists each day will receive a free roll of Duck Tape.

Duct Tape Capital of the World

The 7th annual Duct Tape Festival is underway in Avon, Ohio, the Duct Tape Capital of the World. This year's event -- held every Father's Day weekend -- has an unlikely Grand Marshall: Teresa Scanlan, Miss America 2011. She's not from Ohio and she's not attending because of a contractual obligation. She genuinely loves duct tape. In fact, Teresa spoke on stage during the pageant about her love of duct tape, and when she was later invited to the festival she enthusiastically agreed. Teresa's highlight moment will come June 19, when she rides in the festival parade atop a float made of duct tape.

It's highly unlikely that next year's Miss America will share a similar passion for an adhesive product, so this is probably a once-in-a-lifetime event.
