Free Chick-fil-A for Cow Appreciation Day in July

The 2022 date should be announced soon!

I know it's hard to keep track of all these important holidays, but Chick-fil-A's 15th annual Cow Appreciation Day will be held on … well, sometime in early July, from open until 7pm. No, we don't eat cow that day. That's saved for Frog Appreciation Day the following week. I know, it's a complicated system.

What the celebration entitles us to is a free Chick-fil-A breakfast, lunch, or dinner entree if you wear any cow attire. One nice perk is that you don't have to go all out like I did 10 years ago (see the photo below!) Previous years required you to dress completely like a cow in order to get a free entree, however in recent years you only need to wear any sort of Cow attire!

Q: Can I still redeem the free entrΓ©e if I just wear a cow accessory?
A. Customers who arrive wearing any sort of cow apparel will receive one free entrΓ©e.

Free Chick-fil-A Entree Dress Cow

They included photos of simple cow apparel to give you an idea. So either climb into your full cow costume or simply wear a white shirt with black dots and say moo – either way, you're getting free food!

If any Hiffers make a cool cow costume and participate in this freebie, we'd love to see pictures! You can share them on our Facebook freebie page, Twitter, or below in the comments πŸ™‚


Free Chick-fil-A meal

2019 Update: I have some bad news. The cow costume I made years ago was recently (and supposedly, “accidentally”) thrown away. It's a tragedy on par with the extension of the dinosaurs extinction. Or at the very least, the loss of the dodos. I'm not quite sure how to equate the value I added to the world by dressing up as a cow and asking people to milk my udders.

  1. Thanks for the reminder! We’ve done about 7 years now. So generous of company. Now, my kids are older, so we use the drive-thru with our masks. Kids still can get complete meal with drinks. Adults and teens can get sandwich, nuggets or a grilled wrap I believe. Wonderful!

  2. According the Chick-fil-A website (and the posters at my Chick-fil-A ) they are only doing the free entree. There is no mention of the free meal this year.

  3. Thanks for the reminder! Kids can get away with only headband & paper ears for a free meal! We met another family for lunch. What a generous company!! Free meal and drinks for all with minimal “cow” costume effort.

    • The udders were foam sticks repurposed from either a cheap toy or some sort of hair curler from the Dollar Store, I can’t remember. The hat was an elastic hair band with construction paper ears.

  4. I have fully functioning udders, do you think they’ll let me get away with not wearing a full costume if I point that out?

  5. I love chick fil a… employees aren’t so irritated with the inconvenient customers trying to buy food, and the food is better than most.
    Of course you don’t have to like their “social policies” but it’ll be a rotten day for America when we’re not allowed to state opinions any longer. They’re certainly not refusing to serve anyone… just exercising a little freedom of speech. I don’t believe any American can fight against that! πŸ™‚

  10. I loved this freebie I went earlier in the mornig with my mom and brother then when my dad got home we went to two more I got a total of 3 full meals. I wore white pants and a white shirt and printed out the cow ears from the chick-fil-a website and I taped them to a headband so all white clothing and a headband with cow ears worked for me. I will be ejoying Chick-fil-a for the next 2 days. Thanks for the freebie posting. and for those of u who went enjoy your Chick-Fil-A. Thanks-Heather

  11. I have a very good friend that is the business manager for a Chic-Fil-A, and he dresses like a cow on a regular basis for events. The full outfit. It’s not uncommon to find the cow in the backseat of his car. πŸ˜€

  12. I wore a paperboard hat that I got from a previous visit to CFA. It qualified me for a free sandwich! They took my pic, but I did not.
