Clover Celebrates Butter & Eggs Day 2017
Tradition is a big part of who we are at Clover. It’s one of the reasons we support local events in our hometown cow-munity—especially those that celebrate Petaluma’s rich agriculture heritage in the dairy and poultry industries.
The annual Petaluma Butter & Egg Days festival each April is one of these beloved events.
Currently in its 36th year, this family-friendly day has been a local favorite since 1982, when it was resurrected from the original Egg Days Parade that stopped in 1926.
This year’s theme, Petaluma—City of Makers!, paid tribute to the innovative spirit that fuels the community to create and craft artisan products and ideas.
Crowds lined the downtown streets for several blocks to cheer the 100+ floats and marching bands in the parade. Always a highlight, our beloved mascot Clo received lots of smiles and hugs (even a squeeze from Miss Sonoma County) as she moseyed through the crowd to start the Kids Parade, before taking her place onboard Clover’s float amid an enthusiastic crew decked out in Clover maker aprons and ringing cow bells.
President & CEO Marcus Benedetti and his family were front and center enjoying the fun.
From cow chip throwing to the “cutest chick” contest, the event attracts over 30,000 spectators to downtown Petaluma each year to enjoy live music, food vendors, beer gardens, arts & crafts and other family friendly activities.
We at Clover are proud of our Petaluma roots and local traditions like Butter & Egg Days that celebrate our vibrant Sonoma County hometown community.
