Poultry Days release 2024 festival theme


VERSAILLES – Poultry Days is happy to announce our 2024 festival theme of “Poultry of the Caribbean.”  The 2024 theme is a play on the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

Festival Chairman Vince Serraino said, “The festival theme was inspired by past Chairman Matt Poeppleman’s son Jacob Poeppleman. I liked the idea because it’s something the community and parade participants can be creative, inspired, and have fun with decorating parade floats”.

BEWARE, there may be some hidden treasures. 

The theme artwork was created by Versailles native Morgan Turpen Rose. Morgan is a Versailles alumnus and a graduate of the University of Cincinnati. While attending UC, she studied Graphic Communication Design and now owns Daydream Creative Services, which offers graphic design and photography services. She is an advocate for the arts and has run the Poultry Days Art and Photography Show for the last few years. Morgan has also been instrumental in building out the festival’s brand, starting while she was attending the University of Cincinnati. Poultry Days is thankful for Morgan’s Contributions to the festival”.

Festival Chairman, Vince Serraino, has participated on the Poultry Days Board of Directors for nine years.  Vince grew up in Mariemont, Ohio, and has lived in Versailles with his wife, Beth (Coons) Serraino, for the past 15 years. Vince graduated from Northern Kentucky University and is a Project Manager for Global Workplace Solutions/Planes Companies.  Vince and Beth are excited about a safe and enjoyable festival for all!

A variety of floats and parade units are welcome, and we encourage your participation with the festival theme. The Poultry Days Board is counting on everyone to make the parade fun, exciting, and safe for all parade attendees. Parade registration has opened at VersaillesPoultryDays.com.  

The board is planning a full festival, including rides, parades, and a social tent.  All bands have been booked, and advance bulk chicken sales will begin in March. The 73rd Annual Poultry Days Festival will be held June 14-16. As one of Ohio’s oldest festivals, this event celebrates the area’s poultry-producing history. The board welcomes everyone to visit Versailles and enjoy the festival.
