History of A-Day
The first A-Day was held May 21, 1949 on the campus of the National Agricultural College. At that time, A-Day was a single day when the students of the college worked together to showcase various agricultural displays and exhibits. Today the tradition continues with the hard work and dedication of the students of Delaware Valley University. The entire event is planned and implemented by the students with minimal guidance from the university’s staff, faculty, and administration. Since 2004 A-Day has been part of the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs. Members of the university and local community are invited to enter their food items, artwork, or handicrafts for judging in the fair.
While we love animals here at Delaware Valley University, we ask that you leave your pets at home for the day. This is policy is due to concerns of biosecurity and the health of our livestock. Service animals are welcome.
A-Day weekend left me speechless. I am so proud of how well my team worked together to put on this event for the surrounding community… and how much fun everyone had doing it!
