The Duck Tape Festival returns this summer.
The Avon Heritage Duck Tape Festival returns in-person this summer. It launched in 2004 with the encouragement of Avon residents as a “fun twist to pay homage to Duck Tape as an integral part of the local business community."

The festival, which takes place each Father’s Day weekend, features a different theme each year. This year’s theme, Knock It Out of the Park, highlights baseball.

A crowd of 50,000 is expected to attend the three-day event, which takes place from Thursday, June 16, to Saturday, June 18, at Mercy Health Stadium.

Life-sized Duck Tape sculptures created by students and faculty members from the Art Academy of Cincinnati using thousands of rolls of Duck Tape will be on display.

Admission is free, and there will be crafts, food and more activities onsite.
