Delaware County Dairy Banquet on Saturday Night

The Delaware County Dairy Banquet will be held Saturday night at the Delaware County Fairgrounds Pavilion in Manchester.

The Dairy Banquet will begin serving a roast beef and chicken breast dinner at 6:30 pm, with the program beginning at 8 pm. Several awards will be presented to honor those involved in the dairy industry and Greg Peterson of the Peterson Brothers will provide the evening’s entertainment.

And new this year is the return of the Deliciously Dairy Contest. Delaware County Dairy Promoters President Jill Kunde says recipes can be dropped off on Saturday morning.

And new Delaware County Dairy Royalty will also be crowned on Saturday night. Abby Klostermann has spent this past year serving as the county’s Dairy Princess.

Alternate Princesses Amber Engelken and Lauren Goldsmith have enjoyed serving this past year too.

This year’s candidates for Delaware County Dairy Princess are Laney Demmer, Sarah Goedken and Tara Goedken. And Little Royalty candidates are Linkin Honkomp and Maggie Hoeger. Iowa Dairy Princess, Julie Hammerand from Dubuque County, will also be on hand for the crowning.

Door prizes will also be given away throughout the night and everyone will leave with a free pound of butter. Tickets are still available through Jill Kunde or any Delaware County Dairy Promoter board member – you can check our website at for a list of phone numbers.
