ChickenQue Logo 1-13
Chickenque is an open house to introduce the 4-H program to members of our community, as well as a fundraiser for the Sonoma County 4-H. For 58 years, 4-H members and their families from all over the county have come together, rain or shine, to host the largest single day chicken BBQ west of the Mississippi! Our 4-H Clubs host interactive booths featuring the many projects their members are involved with. Please come out and be part of this wonderful event, enjoy good company and a good meal! Fun for the whole family!

The 4-H Open House & ChickenQue belongs to every 4-H family both past and present. We have worked hard to maintain the essence of the historic event while helping it evolve to meet the demands of today and tomorrow. We started as an annual picnic/BBQ that brought 4-H families and friends across the county together for a day of fun and relaxation. Fast forward: we now have evolved into an event that is an open house that highlights all the wonderful things 4-H in Sonoma County has to offer prospective 4-H’ers and their families!

Check out the 2017 chickenque video! Thank you froggy 92.9!
