Press Release

Get Ready to Blast Off to the 2014 Avon Heritage Duck Tape® Festival!

Duck Tape® takes you "Out of this World" with fashions, crafts, sculptures and more

AVON, Ohio (January 2014) – Imagine you are a space explorer – what’s the one tool you would want with you just in case? Duck Tape®! Now the classic fix-all's next mission is to show you how Duck Tape® is "Out of This World" this Father's Day weekend at the 11th Annual Avon Heritage Duck Tape® Festival – where the possibilities, just like space, are virtually endless!

Start the countdown for Friday, June 13 – Sunday, June 15, 2014, in Avon, Ohio – the “Duct Tape Capital of the World” and home of Duck® brand duct tape – where this year's Festival will take you "Out of This World.” This free Festival will take you on the journey of duct tape – from its start as a World War II battlefield repair tool to Duck® brand and its current role as the leader of the modern duct tape crafting and fashion phenomenon. No wonder more than 50,000 duct tape enthusiasts make the (almost galactic) trek to Avon every year from as far away as Hawaii, Canada and England!

Festival-goers who touch down at the three-day Festival will enjoy a parade of duct tape floats, a scavenger hunt, a Ducktivities® arts and crafts tent, and lots of family friendly games, rides, live entertainment, food and more. There's even free admission and parking, and the first 500 attendees each day of the Festival receive a roll of Duck® brand duct tape.

The Avon Heritage Duck Tape® Festival takes place at Veterans Memorial Park, 3701 Veterans Memorial Parkway:

Friday, June 13: 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Saturday, June 14: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Duck Tape® parade starts at 10 a.m. beginning at 
Avon High School and ending at Veterans Memorial Park

Sunday, June 15: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
