World Championship Dainty Contest + Festival

Join us for the 54th Annual World Championship Dainty Contest and Dainty Fest from Saturday, July 27th through Monday, July 29st.

On Saturday, we're kicking off a weekend celebrating Dainty with the 4th Annual Dainty FUNdraiser at The Merryweather featuring bands, drink specials, games, raffles, and more!

On Sunday, folks can enjoy a day full of fun at Hauck’s Corner for Open Hauck’s. The day will include food, music, a dunk tank, the bologna sandwich eating contest, and more!

On the last Monday in July, crowds will gather on George Hauck Way for the 54th year to see who will be crowned the 2024 Dainty Champion.

Monday's event will feature the classic Dainty Contest, food trucks (+ bologna sandwiches!), and a beer garden. SACC will be selling merchandise to help fund community projects throughout the year.

Again this year, all events will include the Dainty Batting Cage. It’s your chance to try your hand at Dainty and see just how much skill (er, luck) is involved. Note: Anyone over the age of 45 will be restricted from participating in the batting cage on Monday.

This will be the biggest Dainty yet!
