HomepageDividerYale Bologna Festival

July 24-27, 2014


The Yale Community will celebrate 26
years of being “Full of Bologna.. and Proud
of It!” on July 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th
2014. The wacky and wonderful Yale
Bologna Festival began in 1989 with a small
group of organizers and has grown every
year into a bigger and better celebration of
the lunchmeat that everyone loves.
Yale has been featured in newspapers,
on television and radio for their fun, family
atmosphere and we host nearly 30,000
bologna fun-seekers each year. Our town of
2,000 residents all come together to make
the weekend wonderful – and it’s all done
by volunteers. It’s a huge endeavor, but the
fun is worth it and the family memories are
now three generations strong.
Bologna has a long tradition in this
community that was settled by German, Polish
and Irish immigrants in the early 1800’s.
They brought their bologna making skills
with them, and today our local plant, C.
Roy, Inc., still provides us with over 2 tons
of their secret recipe bologna for the festival!
The Yale Area Chamber of Commerce
may be the offi cial ‘host and organizer’ of
this event, but it truly has been adopted
by the entire town. The cooperation from
many organizations is amazing to watch.
Together they provide our ‘Royal Subjects’
and visitors an enjoyable weekend for all
We are looking forward to hosting you
in little Yale, our friendly town full of not
only Bologna, but royalty and tradition. If
you want to have some plain old fashioned,
country fun, then Yale is truly THE PLACE
to be….. and that’s No Bologna!
