145 1st Street, Prairie du Sac, WI, 53578, United States

It’s an annual tradition in Prairie du Sac to toss cow “chips” at this annual festival, which happens Friday & Saturday, September 4-5 this year. Dried out and surprisingly unoffensive to the nose, these nuggets of nastiness get hurled into the air with the goal of the most distance as possible – with a crowd of onlookers often in the sights where they land.

Of course, that’s the main event; there’s also music with plenty of bands, a “Tournament of Chips” parade, kids’ activities including a pedal pull, arts & crafts, 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 41st annual Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw & Festival!

You’ll find the festival just off U.S. 12 and Highways 60 and 78 in Prairie du Sac, in Marion Park at 1st & Grand. And YES, they’ll have a big screen TV so you can watch the Badgers take on Alabama!
