Dan Rice Days

In 1965, Joseph Mager Jr.and a group of volunteers got together to plan a celebration to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the erection and dedication of Civil War Memorial in the center of town. That celebration was the beginning of Dan Rice Days, which has grown and become more popular each and every year. Held the first full weekend in August every year, a dedicated committee now plans the celebration that recognizes and commemorates the many contributions that Daniel McClaren (aka Dan Rice) made to the town of Girard. The festival sports free entertainments, craft vendor and merchants, great local food, educational activities and parade. The Festival begins on Thursday evening and concludes on Saturday evening.
