The Avon Heritage Duck Tape® Festival is back live and in-person at its new location on the grounds of Avon’s Mercy Health Stadium! The 17th annual event is sure to be a homerun as it returns Thursday, June 16 through Saturday, June 18, 2022. With the theme of “Knock It Out of the Park,” this all-ages event will highlight another American classic, baseball, with thousands of Duck Tape® enthusiasts expected to attend the three-day festival on the grounds of Mercy Health Stadium, a brand-new location for 2022.

“It’s been three years since our last in-person event, and we can’t wait to welcome Duck Tape® fans from all across the country back to Avon for this very special festival,” says Bill Kahl, executive vice president of marketing with Shurtape Technologies, LLC, the company that markets Duck Tape®. “Though our event will be on a slightly smaller scale this year than in years past, there will be plenty of fun to be had, including what makes our Festival unique – hand-crafted Duck Tape® sculptures, Duck Tape® crafting, live music and more.”

Duck Tape® Festival attendees will have an array of activities to keep them entertained. Families can indulge in delectable fair foods and snacks; gaze upon the dozens of uniquely crafted, larger-than-life baseball-themed sculptures made of Duck Tape® by students and artists from the Art Academy of Cincinnati and watch some phenomenal live performances at various stages on the Festival grounds. Attendees can make spectacular Duck Tape® creations at the Duck Tape® Maker Tent featuring arts and crafts, dance along with live entertainment, and much more. Plus, the first 500 visitors each day will receive a free roll of Duck Tape®!
