Home of the world famous barbecue chicken!
Poultry Days, an annual community festival which began in 1952 to celebrate thearea’s history as a leading poultry-producer, is held the second full weekend in June. Arrive early to enjoy one of our World Famous chicken dinners and maybe get the “ONE MILLIONTH” chicken dinner sold. We expect to serve over 25,000 of these delicious chicken dinners, but they can sell quickly.
This year the festival expects to sell its ONE MILLIIONTH chicken dinner. To recognize this milestone a theme of “Poultry Going Platinum” has been selected.
The festival is always packed with many activities for people of all ages to enjoy. There are two parades, the Grand Parade at 11 a.m. on Saturday and the Antique Car Parade at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. The Village will host the 37th annual Ultimate Frisbee Tournament, which is one of the top tournaments in the nation. Some of the other activities will include: Miss Chick and Little Miss Poultry Days Contests, FREE Kiddie Tractor Pull, rides and games for all ages, Vendor Area, Cake and Egg Contests, Flower Show, and Art & Photo Show along with many other family friendly events.
Returning for 2018: The festival’s 5K continues to grow as a member of the Darke County Wellness Challenge; the Bear Hollow Woodcarvers and Valley Exotics.
Bands have been booked and will be announced with a couple of new bands added to the lineup.
