Delaware Valley College shows its stuff on ‘A-Day’

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. -- Delaware Valley College’s annual “A-Day” will take place this weekend, April 25-27. The College will open its campus up to the community for the annual student-run fair that showcases agriculture. Visitors can learn about a variety of topics while having a great time as a family. Admission is free, but there is a $10 charge to park. Credit cards will be accepted for general A-Day purchases except parking and some vendor displays, which will require cash.

"We have been eagerly working to host another great A-Day since the closing of last year’s event, and we are excited to see what will happen as the event unfolds this year," said Kaleb Long, A-Day president.

A-Day, which stands for Activities Day, brings the campus and the surrounding community together for educational exhibits, competitions, entertainment, fun and great food. Exhibits and demonstrations involve a variety of majors. The College has been hosting A-Day since 1949 and proceeds from the event support scholarships. It is part of the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs.

A-Day also brings in a variety of crafters and commercial exhibits. Children are sure to learn new facts while having fun. Come and enjoy great entertainment while making memories that will last a lifetime. Home-made, thick milkshakes are also available.

The student-run event gives undergraduates a chance to practice planning and implementing a large-scale campus fair. The students coordinate with vendors, exhibits and guests to provide a popular community event each year.
