The Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival takes place June 17-19 in Avon, Ohio, home to Duck brand duct tape manufacturer Henkel Consumer Adhesives. This duct tape fly was on display during last year's inaugural festival.
"From sculptures and fashion to games and a parade, everything at the festival will revolve around duct tape. Festival attendees will be able to make duct tape crafts, like roses and wallets, with professional duct tape sculptor, Todd Scott and duct tape crafter and author, Ellie Schiedermayer.
Henkel Consumer Adhesives, marketer of Duck brand duct tape, will celebrate the sticky stuff with the display of numerous of larger-than-life duct tape sculptures created by local artists. In addition, The Duct Tape Guys, nationally known duct tape evangelists and authors of six books, will have several scheduled performances during the festival’s duration.
As the perfect celebration for Father’s Day weekend, the Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival not only features dad’s favorite fix-all, but also includes an antique car and truck show, a "Duct Tape Dad of the Year" contest, and all the classic fair food and rides which make festivals such a great time."
