Rock -n- Roll All Night & Poultry Every Day!

In advance of the upcoming festival, and to allow parade and festival preparation, the Poultry Days Board is proud to share the 2019 theme artwork. The 2019 festival theme is “Rock -n- Roll All Night & Poultry Every Day!” Think early 1970’s hair bands, rock and roll with a poultry twist! 2019 Festival Chairman Alex Luthman shared “The theme to me brings to light what I think of when Poultry Days comes to mind. The music, party, and of course the chicken! What a great opportunity we have to raise thousands of dollars for local organizations in the Versailles area and fund Heritage Park by putting on the county’s biggest festival!”

The 2019 art work was created by local resident and Versailles High School graduate, Quincy Baltes. Quincy 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 recently opened her own business, Turpen Design, and contributes her time to designing festival signs and graphics. Ben Ahrens is another Versailles alum and also a graduate of Ball State University. Ben has been working to support and update the festival website. The Poultry Days Board is excited to involve local graduates in the festival and see their creativity support the community.

The 68th annual festival will be held June 14, 15, and 16th 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
