Ever heard of Chickens’ Ball and wondered, what the heck is a
Chickens’ Ball?
In 1940 a San Carlos teacher started the San Carlos Chickens’
Ball as a way to raise milk money for all of the school children in
San Carlos. The Chickens’ Ball is a unique community show set
in the 1890’s Barbary Coast of San Francisco. Schools and
community groups perform variety skits and melodramas to
compete for pokes of “gold” just like they did in San Francisco in
the 1890’s. A distinctive San Carlos tradition, the Ball is held
every even year to raise funds for all seven schools in San Carlos.
Come join the fun and be a part of the 2012 Ball.

Do you like to sing or dance? Act? Sew? Paint? Brandish a glue gun? Hide behind the curtain? Control the
lights and sound? Chickens’ Ball is a community effort and requires the participation of many people on and off
stage. If you have a show talent and would like to be a part of the 2012 Chickens’ Ball, please contact:
