Strolling of the Heifers Parade and Slow Living Expo

The world-famous, agriculturally-themed Strolling of the Heifers Parade starts at 10 a.m. sharp on Brattleboro’s historic Main Street. Pre-parade entertainment starts at 9 a.m. The parade kicks off with scores of lovable heifer calves, groomed, decorated and led by future farmers. The heifers are followed by farm animals, bands, tractors, floats, clowns and surprises. (The heifers lead the parade, so don’t be late!) When it’s over, follow the crowd to the 11-acre Slow Living Expo for food, entertainment, animals, tractors, music and family fun, plus demonstrations, craft show and exhibits related to our mission of farm and food innovation.
