The 2016 Versailles Poultry Days will be June 10th, 11th & 12th.
The Versailles Poultry Days’ Board of Directors and the Village of Versailles welcome you to the 65th annual Poultry Days festival June 10th, 11th and 12th - 2016.
Poultry Days, an annual community festival which began in 1952 to celebrate the area’s history as a leading poultry producer, is held the second full weekend in June. Arrive early to enjoy one of our World Famous chicken dinners. We expect to serve over 25,000 of these delicious chicken dinners, but they can sell quickly.
The festival is always packed with many activities for people of all ages to enjoy. There are two parades, the Grand Parade at 11am on Saturday and the Antique Car and Tractor Parade at 2:30pm on Sunday. The Village will host the 35th annual Ultimate Frisbee Tournament, which is one of the top tournaments in the nation. Some of the other activities will include: Miss Chick and Little Miss Poultry Days contests, FREE Kiddie Tractor Pull, 5K Run, rides and games for all ages, Vendor Area, Cake and Egg Contests, Flower Show, Photography and Art Shows along with many other family friendly events.
Returning for 2016: The Darke County Photography show will be back for their 4th year at Poultry Days and the festival’s 5K continues to grow as a member of the Darke County Wellness Challenge. Also back for 2016 are the Bear Hollow Woodcarvers.
Bands have been booked and will be announced with several additions to the festival.
Mark your calendar, schedule your vacation and check the links and information on this website periodically for updated information. If you have specific questions please contact us.
We look forward to seeing everyone in June!
