Ripley's Believe It or Not Museums worldwide
World Sword Swallower's Day is an annual event held by the Sword Swallower's Association International (SSAI) on the last Saturday of February, National Swallowing Disorders Month, and co-sponsored by Ripley Entertainment at Ripley's Believe It or Not Odditoriums worldwide.
On World Sword Swallower's Day 2016 join sword swallowers around the world in celebrating 4000 years of Doing the Impossible at Ripley's Believe It or Not Odditoriums on Saturday, February 27, 2016, with FREE SHOWS starting at 2:00 and ending with the annual Big Swallow at 2:27 pm.
World Sword Swallower's Day was founded by the Sword Swallowers Association in 2008 to:
* raise awareness of the contributions sword swallowers have made in the fields of science and medicine,
* dispel myths and explain the dangers of sword swallowing,
* honor veteran and injured sword swallowers,
* raise contributions for Esophageal Cancer, swallowing disorders, and the Injured Sword Swallower's Relief Fund,
* and to prove that after 4000 years, the ancient art of sword swallowing is still a viable and exciting entertainment option today!
