City of Redwood City, Fox Theater, and San Mateo County History Museum have teamed up to host the Silicon Valley Ball - the largest celebration our City has ever seen!
Saturday, December 14th
Downtown Redwood City
The event will spread across four downtown venues - Fox Theatre, Club Fox, Courthouse Square, and the San Mateo County History Museum.
The County History Museum will be transformed into a roaring 1920's casino, while headliner comedians perform at the Fox Theatre, people dance to DJ Dinero in Courthouse Square, and attendees enjoy multiple live music bands at Club Fox.
The Silicon Valley Ball will exemplify the high level of entertainment found in downtown Redwood City year round, and ticket sales beyond the cost of this production will support arts and entertainment in downtown Redwood City.
- Comedy: Whitney Cummings, co-creator of CBS's 2 Broke Girls, headlines, followed by stand-up comedian and past Saturday Night Live star Jay Mohr, and opening act, Natasha Leggero, seen regularly on the Tonight Show and Comedy Central.
- Casino! The San Mateo County History Museum will be converted into a roaring 20's themed casino, complete with Craps, Roulette, Blackjack Tables, Texas Hold'em, Money Wheel, and a Tournament Style Poker Room. "Champion" card players in three categories will earn prizes such as flat screen TV, a three night stay at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley Hotel, and an Apple iPad.
- Music: Attendees can dance to music played by DJ Dinero in Courthouse Square, and live music in Fox Theater before and after the comedy show, and all night in Club Fox.
- Cuisine: Under the tented Courthouse Square, you will find food from six restaurants: La Viga, Donato Enoteca, Sakura, Bianchini's Market, Pamplemousse, and Café La Tartine.
