As if you needed a regular reminder that Chick-fil-A serves chicken sandwiches not cheeseburgers, the cult-favorite yet often polarizing Southern fast-food chain throws its annual Cow Appreciation Day (get it?) celebration. For more than a decade, thousands of people all across the country have flocked to their nearest restaurant for the day-long event, sporting cow-spotted clothing and accessories in order to earn free fried chicken sandwiches. This year's cow-themed feeding frenzy is just weeks away.
When is Cow Appreciation Day in 2018?
Chick-fil-A's official website reveals that Cow Appreciation Day 2018 will fall on Tuesday, July 10. From open through 7pm (local time), almost every Chick-fil-A location in the United States will treat you to one free entree if you show up wearing some sort of "cow-like" apparel. In previous years, scoring the free meal has been as easy taping printed cow spots to yourself or ordering a cow-print bandana that can double as a festive bib for when you start stuffing your face with waffle fries. Arriving with nothing but a cowbell in your hand probably won't cut it, though.
