Up to 3000 people, including twins, higher number multiples, and their families and friends attended the event. The festival offered something for everyone, with rides for all ages, celebrity twin meet-and-greets, twin-talent performances and even shopping and exhibits unique to twins.

Besides focusing on having a good time, the festival is also about supporting multiple birth families. “Life in families with multiples can sometimes be difficult because of the extra strain on finances, added stress on relationships, and difficulties with educational outcomes. We want families with multiples to know there is a lot of support around them and they’re not alone,” Festival Chairperson Karen Willetts – herself a mother of 13-year-old twins.
