POULTRY DAYS 2021 ~ June 11, 12, 13
WELCOME TO POULTRY DAYS!
The Versailles Poultry Days’ Board of Directors and the Village of Versailles welcome you to the 69th annual Poultry Days festival August 14th-16th. Poultry Days is an annual community festival which began in 1952 to celebrate the area’s history as a leading poultry-producer. This year the festival will be held at Heritage Park located at 10200 Klipstine Road. Chicken Sales will be August 14, 15, 16 and the full festival will run August 15th and 16th.
Arrive early to enjoy one of our World-Famous chicken dinners. Since 1952 this village of less than 3,000 people has sold 1,041,685 of these delicious dinners. Last year 29,000 dinners were sold, but arrive early as they can sell quickly. This chicken drive through can be accessed from Klipstine road in Versailles.
The festival theme of Loaded Up & Cluckin has special meaning this year.” The 2020 festival theme is a salute to all those hard-working drivers, dispatchers and mechanics who keep the freight moving and have contributed to the growth of Versailles. In the last few months, we have been reminded of the importance of the trucking industry.
Mark your calendar, schedule your vacation and check this website periodically for details and updated information.

We look forward to seeing everyone in August!
