It’s time to break out the spots and cow bells for Chick-fil-A’s 12th annual Cow Appreciation Day event on Tuesday, July 12. On that day, customers who show their spots will receive a free entree at Chick-fil-A’s more than 2,000 restaurants nationwide.
Adult customers who dress in any type of cow attire, whether it’s “head-to-hoof” or sporting a cow-spotted accessory, will be rewarded with a free Chick-fil-A entrée of their choice, such as an Original Chicken Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap, or Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit. Children can receive a free Kid’s Meal for dressing in a cow costume. The Cow Appreciation Day celebration will last from store opening through 7 p.m. local time.
Fans can share pictures of their costumes on social media by using the hashtag #CowAppreciationDay. Additionally, all Chick-fil-A restaurants will have an active Cow Appreciation Day Snapchat filter that will allow guests to share their experience with their friends and family.
“Cow Appreciation Day is the one day where it’s okay to dress ‘udderly’ crazy and get rewarded for it,” says Jon Bridges, Chick-fil-A’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “The event also affords our guests the chance to explore our menu, whether they want to try some of our newer, healthier menu options, such as our Grilled Chicken Sandwich or Grilled Nuggets, or go with a classic favorite like our Original Chicken Sandwich and Chicken Nuggets.”
