The Cow Parade “is the largest and most successful public art event in the world.” Over 50 cities have hosted it since 1999, and it has raised over $20 million for charity.
This is a popular question. Simply, the cow is a universally beloved animal. The cow represents different things to different people around the world-she’s sacred, she’s historical, she connects us to our past-but the common feeling is one of affection. There is something magical about the cow that transcends throughout the world. She simply makes everyone smile.
