Prairie Days Entertainment

Looking for some great, free entertainment? Prairie Days has a full schedule of entertainers on their outdoor stage. The festival runs from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, September 29th and from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Sunday, September 30th.

The Darke County Civic Theatre will have 3 performances throughout the weekend, 11:00 am and 2:30 pm on Saturday and 2:30 pm on Sunday. The title of this year’s Prairie Days Melodrama is “True Blue and Trusted” by R. A. Anderson and R. L. Sweeney and is produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Company. The show is fun, with lots of laughs for all ages. This old-time melodrama is one in which everyone has a good time. J. Tamarack Gargle, who is the villain and landlord of the heroine's home, threatens to evict the entire family unless Lily Lackamoney, the heroine, promises to marry him. Mayhem and hilarity ensue and you will have to come to Prairie Days to find out just what happens to Lily Lackamoney.

Also onstage on Saturday at 4:00 pm, you will hear the “Truest Lies Ever Told” by a traveling longhunter. This professional storyteller has a story that everyone in the family will enjoy. Sunday at 12:00 pm, the Mountain Dulcimer Society of Dayton will delight us with traditional music of the mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, autoharp, guitar and other acoustic instruments. All of these performances are free and fun for the whole family.
