Dan Patch Days Community Festival
September 6 - 8, 2019

Oxford, Indiana


Dan Patch Days is a festival held annually in honor of the world famous pacer who was foaled in Oxford, Indiana to owner Daniel Messner, Jr.

Dan Patch was a long-legged, wobbly, awkward colt with knobby knees - the colt even required assistance to stand to nurse. Many of Messner's friends encouraged him to have the colt put out of his misery. Instead the colt was nurtured and trained to be a pacer. And the rest is history.

For more information on the Great Dan Patch, please visit the Dan Patch Historical Society.


2019 Schedule coming soon!
