Spain has the running of the bulls; Vermont has the Strolling of the Heifers. The annual event anchors a weekend of festivities that draws revelers from around the state. Founded in 2001, this world-famous parade is far more than a procession of more than 100 cows bedecked in flowers and led by future farmers. These bovine beauties serve as a celebration of Vermont’s thriving locavore culture and its strong connection to the farming community. Bookending this centerpiece, all-ages agricultural activities include the Slow Living Summit and the Tour de Heifer. Live entertainment, local eats and educational exhibits round out the fun.
