August 2nd – 4th, 2012
Downtown Girard, PA
Thursday afternoon arrives and the luring smells of kettle corn, funnel cake and hot sausage sandwiches fill the air. Booths filled with hand-crafted treasures line the street, and the band can be heard playing in the park. The Dan Rice Days celebration has begun!
For more than 20 years the people of Girard, Pennsylvania have gathered annually to celebrate the life and times of famous circus man Dan Rice. Dan Rice was a charismatic and charming performer, a quick-witted comedian, and a gifted animal trainer, singer, dancer and speaker. He was an amazing showman and friend to the community.
The 2 ½-day festival includes sports tournaments, an antique show, parade, Civil War re-enactment, a crafters area, live musical performances, a children’s play area, and classic car show and more! For details, see the schedule of events.
