Cow Days- is a September tradition that dates back to the days of the Great Depression when Dixon merchants enticed customers to shop at their stores by rewarding them with a ticket for a free cow giveaway. Cows are still given away at this family friendly street festival- with a cash option. Food, bands, vendors, and people fill the streets during this one of a kind two day festival. It is udderly fantastic!
