Dryden Dairy Day Finds Creative Ways to Celebrate

Posted by  //  June 1, 2020  //  Festivals, News

When the Dryden Dairy Day Committee decided to cancel the 37th Dryden Dairy Day due to restrictions on gatherings, they knew they wanted to do something to celebrate farmers.  

“Since the beginning, we have been dedicated to educating the public about the importance of the dairy industry and that won’t stop even though we can’t gather in Montgomery Park on June 13,” said Brenda Carpenter, chair of the Dryden Dairy Day Committee. “We have found creative ways to celebrate our dairy farmers – who are still working every day to provide safe, healthy dairy products.”

  • Milk Donation: Partnering with Trinity Valley Milk and Dryden Central School District, the committee has purchased over 700 gallons of fresh, healthy and local milk to be delivered to local families in need. If you would like to help fund this initiative, visit drydendairyday.org for donation information 
  • Cows is Time Square: The famous cows are still decorating the village’s Time Square as well as local businesses and homes. 
  • Scholarship: A $300 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior in the Dryden School District who has been accepted to a two- or four-year college to study an area of agriculture. 


  • Coloring Dairy Day Cows: The entire community can join in coloring a cow this year by downloading the picture from drydendairyday.org posting to Facebook or Instagram (use #drydendairyday2020) or email it to us at btc6@cornell.edu


  • T-Shirts: A “Collector’s Edition” of the Dryden Dairy Day cow wearing a mask is available for purchase at the Dryden Agway for $20 cash. A limited number of sizes will be available; all proceeds will go to the milk donation effort.

While no one shares in the disappointment of cancelling this revered celebration more than the committee, we assure you that we’ll be back next year.  Mark Saturday, June 12, 2021 for the return of all your Dryden Dairy Day favorites!
