Cow Parade Doutra
The Story of CowParade®
Everyone has a story, and we’re no different. It’s just that our story involves a herd of life-size fibreglass cows, many very talented artists and the art-loving public around the globe.
The first CowParade® was held in Zurich in 1998, with the aim of show-casing local artistic talent and bringing some life to the streets of the city. The rest is history, with events taking place in Chicago and New York, quickly followed by many cities across the globe. CowParade® has brightened the streets of cities in every continent of the world, and the parade is continuing with new cities participating every year. So far, more than 70 cities have participated with over 6.500 artists involved in the design of more than 6.000 cows!
