Poultry Days released Theme Art this week for their 65th annual Poultry Days. The 2016 theme is “A Salute to the American Farmer” recognizing the hard working farmers and agricultural businesses that keep our poultry and agriculture tradition alive.

In celebration of our 65th Anniversary, the Poultry Days Board of Directors extends an invitation to all past Poultry Days Miss Chicks, Little Miss Poultry Days and Poultry Days Festival Chairmen to participate in the Grand Parade. The Grand Parade will be held Saturday June 11th at 11: a.m. We would be honored by your presence. Floats have been organized and we only need your presence! Please RSVP by May 1, 2016 to: Versailles Poultry Days, PO Box 108, Versailles, OH 45380 or Please include your updated address and email.

The Poultry Days festival has enjoyed 65 years of success due to your efforts. Please allow us to show our appreciation.
