Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw
September 3, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 pm
It’s a Labor Day weekend tradition in Prairie du Sac to toss cow “chips” at the annual Cow Chip Throw & Festival.
Dried out and surprisingly unoffensive to the nose, these nuggets of nastiness are hurled into the air by kids and adults alike with the goal of seeing who can throw one the farthest – with a crowd of onlookers often in the sights of where they land. The current record is 248 feet, but records were made to be broken.
Of course, that’s just the main event. You’ll also find lots of live music, a “Tournament of Chips” parade, kids’ activities including a pedal pull, a Fine Arts & Crafts Fair, a run/walk, and much more. So whether you want to throw cow chips, dodge them, or just watch from a safe distance, there’s plenty of bovine-related fun to be had at the annual Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw & Festival!
