Canine Partners for Life’s Fall Festival, which includes the popular cow bingo event, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 17 from noon to 4 p.m. at the campus at 334 Faggs Manor Road in Cochranville. All ages are welcome, so bring the whole family for an afternoon of free and fun activities to discover how service dogs change lives. 

Guests can begin their afternoon by watching a service dog demonstration, touring the CPL kennel or meeting puppies at the ever-popular Puppy Kissing Booth. There will be a Family Fun Zone, a band, Ol’ 442, providing entertainment, a variety of food trucks, unique vendors and more.

“Our Fall Festival is one of the best days at CPL and I look forward to it each year,” said Janie Cramer, CPL’s executive director. “It’s a great opportunity for our community to learn more about the CPL mission, meet recipients of service and companion dogs, tour our campus, support local vendors or enjoy lunch from a local food truck.”

The day ends with Cow Bingo, which is a game of chance. The cow will be released at 3 p.m., and whichever square the cow heeds the call of nature on will be the lucky winner of $5,000. Tickets are $10 each, squares are randomly assigned and chances are 1 in 3,000. Tickets are on sale now and can also be purchased at the event. The winner does not need to be present to win. 

This event is rain or shine. All parking will be on site, at the CPL campus. Personal pets are not permitted. To learn more or download a Cow Bingo order form, visit CPL’s website or Facebook page. There is no admission fee, however, donations are always appreciated and benefit CPL’s mission to increase the independence and quality of life of individuals with physical, developmental, and cognitive disabilities or who are in other situations of need.
