Welcome to Poultry Days!
The Versailles Poultry Days’ Board of Directors and the Village of Versailles welcome you to the 70th annual Poultry Days festival June 11-13th. Always the 2nd full weekend in June!
Poultry Days is an annual community festival which began in 1952 to celebrate the area’s history as a leading poultry-producer. Arrive early to enjoy one of our World-Famous chicken dinners. Since 1952 this village of less than 3,000 people has sold 1,066,185 of these delicious dinners.
The 2021 festival theme is “Village of Champions, Honoring Those Who Make us Great!” The festival is always packed with many activities for people of all ages to enjoy. There are two parades, the Grand Parade at 11 a.m. on Saturday and the Antique Car Parade at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. The Village will host the 40th annual Ultimate Frisbee Tournament, which is one of the top bucket list tournaments in the world. Some of the other activities will include: Miss Chick and Little Miss Poultry Days Contests, FREE Kiddie Tractor Pull, rides and games for all ages, Vendor Area, Cake and Egg Contests, Flower Show, and Art & Photo Show along with many other family friendly events.
