Strolling of the Heifers Weekend, June 6-7-8!
PLEASE, NO DOGS AT THE PARADE OR EXPO! We’re sure your pooch is wonderfully well behaved. But for the safety of the animals and spectators, please leave the dog at home. The animals may be spooked by dogs, since they are already in an unfamiliar setting. Thank you.
Join us in beautiful, historic Brattleboro for a weekend of activities honoring farmers and celebrating local food, all built around our signature event, the world-famous Strolling of the Heifers Parade, Saturday, June 7 at 10 a.m. sharp!
Our 2014 theme is “The Heifers are Coming to Town!” This reflects our new downtown headquarters at the River Garden, illustrated above, and of course, it’s what the Heifers do for our Parade. And, “The Heifers are Coming to Town!” is our theme song, performed by Alan Greenleaf and the Doctor — listen to it here!
