First Saturday in June

You can’t have Wisconsin without cows, and this event celebrates them and National Dairy Month.  The “concourse” refers to the Capitol Square in downtown Madison. It’s fun for adults as well as kids.  you will also meet the young lady representing the Wisconsin Fairs and agriculture with the title, “Fairest of the Fair.”    They are chosen on a yearly basis.

And of course, the cows!  The kids get so excited! They even have a pretend cow to milk, and a mascot. We got our picture with him:)

A few years ago the big promo was the Milk Mustache Campaign and we got a funny picture.

When you get hungry, there is lots of dairy foods for sale, grilled cheese sandwiches, ice cream and cold milk.
