The Versailles Poultry Days’ Board of Directors and the Village of Versailles welcome you to the 62nd annual Poultry Days festival June 14, 15 and 16th, 2013. The 2013 Festival theme is “Poultrystock, Three Days of Friends, Music and CHICKEN”.
Poultry Days is an annual community festival began in 1952 to celebrate the area’s history as a leading poultry producer held the second full weekend in June. Arrive early to enjoy one of our World Famous chicken dinners. We expect to serve over 24,000 of these delicious chicken dinners but they can sell quickly.
The festival is always packed with activities. There are two parades, the Grand Parade at 11am on Saturday and the Antique Car & Tractor Parade at 2:30pm on Sunday. The Village will host the 32nd annual Ultimate Frisbee Tournament which is one of the top tournaments in the nation. Other activities 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 activities.
New for 2013 will be the Tour de Versailles 62 mile Gran Fondo (and 31 mile “Half” Fondo) cycling event occurring on Sunday June 16th. The Darke County Photography show joins the festival and the festival’s 5K gets a new route and becomes part of the Wayne Healthcare “Darke County Challenge”. Back for 2013 are the Bear Hollow Woodcarvers!
