Poultry Going Platinum

In advance of the upcoming festival, and to allow parade and festival preparation, the Poultry Days Board is proud to share the 2018 theme artwork. While the current board will be seeking another annual sales record the Poultry Days organization is anticipating a significant milestone as the festival expects to sell its One Millionth Dinner. In recognition of this milestone the 2018 theme is “Poultry Going Platinum”.

The 2018 artwork is special because it was created by local resident Quincy Baltes. Quincy Baltes is a 2016 alumnus of Versailles High School. He is currently studying Animation and Storyboarding at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. He is also exploring the worlds of Motion Media, Illustration, Sequential Art, and Performing Arts. Along with Quincy Baltes’ work on the theme artwork and festival logo, another local graduate has been supporting the festival. Morgan Turpen is a 2015 graduate of Versailles and studying graphic design under the University of Cincinnati’s DAAP Program. Morgan has been designing signs and billboards and contributing to festival publicity. The Poultry Days Board is excited to involve local graduates in the festival and see their creativity support the community.

The 67th annual festival will be held June 8, 9, and 10th in Versailles Ohio. One of Ohio’s oldest festivals, this event celebrates the area’s poultry-producing history as well as its sense of community. The board welcomes everyone to come enjoy the festival. Registration information for the parade and other festival events will be posted as available at
