KIDRAGEOUS GOLDEN GALLOP has grown over the last three years into a large community event with a costume-themed 5k run along the beautiful Monterey Bay. After the run, stay and enjoy a community party featuring amazing live music, tasty food trucks, a beer garden for adults, and family-themed activities.
The Kidrageous Golden Gallop is truly incredible, as many children diagnosed with cancer and their families get to experience fun festival activities, not present in daily life when you’re busy fighting cancer. The Golden Gallop celebrates all the finer things in life like delicious food, creative arts and crafts, vibrant music and of course lots of love.
Booths at the Golden Gallop are sponsored by many local businesses and organizations. These activities are suitable for all ages and feature fun science projects, local museums, art, games, jump houses, face painting, costumed characters, and much more.
Run the race in costume and you might walk away the big winner of the costume contest, (prize categories for 5k participants only). Or buy tickets and go home with something from our fantastic raffle.
There will be a special guest appearance by Miss California USA India Williams, and a live performance by Reggae rock band, Animo Cruz.
