The Poultry Days Social Tent Schedules Rocks!

Poultry Days 2016 will continue the largest party in the area with an incredible lineup of musicians. Nine live musical acts offer sounds ranging from familiar festival tunes, to alternative rock, to popular country.  With a Social Tent that can hold 2,000 people you can choose to be up front by the music or at a quiet table by the craft bar.  If you want to be in the sunshine or under the stars, table seating has been further expanded to 350. 

Each year the board works to improve our festival and for 2016 we have a few changes to announce to the social tent. The Social Tent will continue to offer Bud Light and Busch Light. Over the winter Poultry Days added MillerCoors products to the Social Tent and MillerCoors is also sponsoring the tent. These beverages will be added to our existing Anheuser-Busch products and wines from The Winery at Versailles. Bud Light and Busch Light will be joined by Miller Lite, Coors Light, Miller 64, Yuengling and many more. The Winery at Versailles will be returning to the festival for the fourth year with a selection including dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet, sweet, sparkling and more! Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Rosatto Muscatto, Rodeo Red, Wedding White, Summer Days, Peach Mist, and sangria. Ten years ago we offered two beverages and 5 bands in the Social Tent. In 2016 we will offer over 20 different types of beer, ale, cider, wine and 9 bands to make your Poultry Days more enjoyable.
