What is ChickenQue?
ChickenQue is a fundraiser and open house for the Sonoma County 4-H Program. 4-H members and their families from all over the county  come together to host the largest single day chicken BBQ west of the Mississippi! They have been doing this for the last 53 years without fail.  Our 4-H members host interactive booths featuring the many projects they are involved with as 4-H er’s.   This is a great family event and an opportunity to learn about 4-H. Please come out and be part of this wonderful event and enjoy a good meal rain or shine! 

Fun for the whole family!  

Rebate Incentives

The 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 to our 2015 event: 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!
