The Twins Days Festival

The Twins Days Festival is the largest annual gathering of twins and other multiples in the world.The Twins Days Festival, which takes place every year in Twinsburg, Ohio, began in 1976 as part of the town’s bicentennial celebration. Since then it has become an international event, drawing twins from as far away as Japan and Nigeria. It is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Largest Annual Gathering of Twins. The festival now draws nearly 3,000 sets of twins.Events include the “Double Take Parade,” Twins Talent Show, panel discussions, a golf tournament, and contests for the twins (and triplets) who look most alike and least alike, the youngest twins, those who have traveled the farthest, etc. About a third of the sets of twins who come to the festival are not identical, and participants are assured they do not have to come dressed alike, although many choose to do so. Individuals who have lost a twin are encouraged to come as well. A similar event, known as Twin-O-Rama, is held in mid-July in Cassville, Wisconsin.
