Versailles Poultry Days

Versailles, OH, 45380


The Versailles Poultry Days’ Board of Directors and the Village of Versailles welcome you to the 73rd annual Poultry Days festival June 14-16th. 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 1,174,285 of these delicious dinners.

The 2024 festival theme is “Poultry of the Caribbean”. The festival is always packed with many activities for people of all ages to enjoy. The Grand Parade will be at 11am. on Saturday and the Antique Car Parade will be replaced with the "Chicken Classic Cruise-In Car Show" on Sunday. The Village will host the 42nd 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, Art & Photo Show and FREE Chicken Eating Contest along with many other family friendly events.

We look forward to seeing everyone in June!
