Cal’s Big Game Bonfire Rally | Greek Theatre
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Greek Theatre | 2001 Gayley Road, Berkeley, CA
The night before The Big Game between Cal and Stanford, The Cal Rally Committee is building and burning down the largest bonfire west of the Mississippi.
Thousands upon thousands of students, faculty, alumni, and Cal fans fill the entire Greek Theater to participate in the 2011 Big Game Rally. Members spend the entire Friday of Big Game Week building the structure of pallets, preparing for the fire that reaches almost four stories high.
Alumni come to speak and share stories of Big Games past, while the football team usually makes a quick visit, many different groups perform, cries of “Freshmen More Wood!” are heard all night long, and the entire theater sits in the glow of candlelight as the fires dies down.
