Twins Days Festival
Annual gathering draws thousands to Twinsburg, Ohio.

The world’s largest annual gathering of twins takes place in Twinsburg, Ohio, where the Twins Days Festival began as a one-day Bicentennial event in 1976. Every year, twins, triplets, and other multiples from around the country travel with their families to the northern Ohio town—named for identical twin brothers from Connecticut—to compete, celebrate, and socialize. Now in its 35th year, the event has become for many a family tradition—and yet another reason to enjoy being a twin. —Photographs by J. Kyle Keener
