The Duck Tape Festival Folds the Tent

It’s the end of an era for the annual Avon Heritage Duck Tape Festival.

In a letter to the community dated Nov. 1 the Duck Tape committee reports that they are disbanding.

Family, Friends and Festival Attendees,

We are reaching out to inform you that a decision has been made to dissolve the Avon Heritage Festival committee, which means we will not be planning a festival for 2024. This committee was created over 20 years ago to bring a fun family activity to the community of Avon. Through our long term collaboration with Shurtape Technologies, LLC and with the support received from the City of Avon we planned an event that grew bigger and bigger each year and provided many memorable moments to all who attended. Your contribution to the festival being a success has been greatly appreciated.

This decision was not made easily and we all have very mixed emotions about it. Each of us on the current committee have put many hours of our lives into the Festival, as have all committee members before us. We made great connections with others who provided support to our team, including sponsors, vendors, volunteers and festival attendees. Mostly we enjoyed knowing what we did to provide enjoyment to others.

Thank you to everyone that has been part of this amazing ride with us. We hope everyone who has participated in any part of the last 20 years of this festival enjoyed it as much, if not more, than we did!
