Old-Time Jamboree

“Thank you to all that came and supported our Jamboree!”

JamboreeThe Little Red School House Old-time Jamboree was held on Sunday April 2, 2017. Our school was magically transformed into the  charming atmosphere of an 1880’s style country fair with our historic red school house as the backdrop. Festivities begin at High Noon ‘til 5:00 p.m. at Ballard School located at 2425 School Street in Ballard. This family event will celebrate the unique 19th century heritage of Ballard School with a day of old-fashioned games and family contests, a pie baking contest, vintage shopping and a silent auction.

Guests will indulge on a scrumptious barbecue and other yummy old-time treats plus enjoy the live country sounds of the Agin Family Band. Don’t miss Santa Barbara County’s largest game of musical chairs with over 100 chairs!
