2021 Twins Days ThemeLearn More
Twinsburg, OH: After monitoring the developments surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Twins Days Festival Committee has announced that the annual Twins Days Festival will be postponed until 2021. Scheduled for August 7-9, 2020, this annual international event is recorded as the “Largest Annual Gathering of Twins in the World” by the Guinness Book of World Records.
“Uncertainty surrounding the current health crisis has increased in recent weeks, and the festival committee has concluded, in coordination with local and state authorities, that the health and safety of our attendees, Twinsburg residents, committee members, and volunteers far outweigh the risks of hosting such a large event as Twins Days” stated Andrew M. Miller, Executive Director of the Twins Days Festival. “We understand that this is disappointing news for our twin family who look forward in anticipation to Twins Days year after year, and also to our local organizations that rely on the event for much needed fundraising.”
In addition to bringing together thousands of sets of twins and multiples each year, the Twins Days Festival provides a centralized location for the multitude of twin related information and research studies.
The Twins Days committee continues to conduct the planning for next year’s festival, which will be held on August 6-8, 2021!

Annual Twinsburg Twins Days Festival Injects Millions into Local Economy
TWINSBURG, Ohio – In addition to bringing together thousands of sets of twins and multiples each year, the Twinsburg, Ohio Twins Days Festival was responsible for bringing more than $5.4 million to the local economy last year.
According to an economic impact study on the 2018 event conducted by Kent State College of Business Administration Associate Professor of Economics Shawn Rohlin, Ph.D., the annual Twins Days Festival, which has an estimated attendance of between 20,000 and 30,000, provides a substantive positive economic impact to the City of Twinsburg and surrounding areas.
“The economic impact of the Twins Days Festival is quite considerable due to its ability to attract out-of-town visitors,” Rohlin said. “Although the Twins Days Festival is a wonderful event for locals, its appeal to so many non-local visitors help bring new money to the local economy.”
The annual Twins Days, an international event, is recorded as the “Largest Annual Gathering of Twins in the World” by the Guinness Book of World Records. Located 25 miles southeast of Cleveland, Twinsburg plays host to thousands of twins from all over the world. Non-twins are also welcome.
“The goal of the Twins Days Festival is to provide a vehicle for celebrating the uniqueness of twins and others of multiple birth, and to provide a celebration of the heritage of Twinsburg,” said Andrew Miller, Executive Director of Twins Days, Inc. “We provide fundraising opportunities for local community groups and give back to the community by underwriting several scholarships to both twins and residents. The Twins Days Festival provides a centralized location for a multitude of twin-related information, including research studies and photo documentation of twins.”
Through the study, which used data obtained through a survey of attendees, Rohlin estimated that non-local twin attendees spent more than $1.5 million at the 2018 event, and other non-local visitors contributed more than $3.8 million to the local economy. According to Rohlin, 76% of non-local visitors said they spent an average of $150 at restaurants over their visit; an average of $429 at hotels; $106 on entertainment; $135 on other retail and $48 at grocery/drug stores.
“Having organized this event for 43 years, the festival committee always felt strongly that the festival has had an economic impact on the local economy and surrounding areas, but to see actual numbers is very reassuring and gratifying for us”, saidMiller. “We are thrilled that the festival brings a financial benefit to the local community in addition to providing fundraising dollars to local school and non-profit groups.”
