Things to Do

Ventspils Cow Parade

In 2002, Ventspils hosted the Cow Parade 2002, which is one of the largest and most successful public art events in the world. 26 natural-size glass fibre cows were then turned into spectacular works of art and sold in a charity auction. Six exhibits from this Cow Parade in Ventspils are still remnant in the city.

In 2012, marking the 10th anniversary of the “Cow Parade Ventpils 2002” events, Ventspils streets, squares and parks once again gave home to 24 colourful and diverse participants of “Cow Parade Ventspils 2012”. After the charity auction the cows have moved to their new owners, but some of them still delight the residents and guests of Ventspils. All in all there are seventeen of them.

3, a little bit bigger cows have joined this herd- Sailor Cow, Travelling Cow, Flower Cow - all of them 4m high and 7m long.

To find all of them use special walking map - to make sure that all the cows are visited.
