We have udderly sad news for fans of the Chick-fil-A cow day! 🐄

Since 2005, Chick-fil-A has set aside one day of the year for customers of all ages to dress like a cow and score a FREE breakfast, lunch, or dinner entrée. The chain’s Cow Appreciation Day has become a summertime tradition that many CFA fans look forward to every July.

Unfortunately, this annual event was interrupted by COVID-19 in 2020 AND 2021, and now the Chick-fil-A Cow Day is being postponed again for 2022. With some dining rooms still not open across the country, this doesn’t come as a complete surprise, but this sad news still puts a damper on our moo-d. 😞

“While Cow Appreciation Day continues to be one of our favorite days of the year, the best decision for our restaurant teams is to not hold the in-person event this year. This was a difficult decision, but we look forward to giving our guests delightful cow interactions in future years.”

    Seriously I’m udderly heartbroken! I’m wiping away the tears as I type! It has always been the best day of the year! I already had my cow gear pulled out ready and waiting! Oh well there’s always/maybe next year.

    Does your Chick FIL A run out of kid’s toys? The last 3 times we’ve bought kid’s meals (paid through the app) they gave us the kid’s meals NO TOYS. They said they were out of toys but this was in two different states and months apart. The worst part is they don’t always offer anything instead! I’m considering not bringing my family over anymore because it’s so disappointing.

      My chick Fil a’s always let us swap a toy for a kids cone!

    • Mel

      You may request an ice dream cup/cone

    They have always had a toy when we have ordered the kid’s meal.

    Only been once. Never went back. Employees were rude to a lady that couldn’t read the top of the menu cause of needing cataract surgery. Told her they were not allowed to read it to customers. Never went back.

      I’ve never had a bad experience there. You should try again. I never boycott an entire company based on the behavior of a few bad employees.

    They look like Dalmatians, not cows.

    I’m so bummed! 🙁
