Poultry Days Festival Rescheduled to August

One of the oldest festivals in Ohio has been rescheduled.  The Versailles Poultry Days festival was slated to open June 12, but due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the stay-at-home order, festival organizers have decided to reschedule the festival to the weekend of August 14.  A statement posted on the festival website reads as follows:
 
"After sixty-eight years the annual Versailles Poultry Days festival will be held in August.  The annual festival which has been held in June since 1952 will be rescheduled for the weekend of August 14th."

Festival Chairman Lucas Subler emphasized the importance of continuing this annual tradition despite recent COVID-19 impacts.  “A year without the festival and chicken dinners would be like a year without Christmas for many festival-goers. We want to do everything possible to maintain the tradition and support our community organizations.”  

Subler continued, “The festival theme of Loaded Up & Cluckin has special meaning this year.” The 2020 festival theme is a salute to all those hard-working drivers, dispatchers, and mechanics who keep the freight moving and have contributed to the growth of Versailles.  In the last few months, we have been reminded of the importance of the trucking industry.
