HeadsUp Carnival brings together every school in San Rafael for an event celebrating all that’s great about our schools and our town. From dancing mascots to marching bands, from face-painting to pupusas, there is something for everyone to enjoy at our annual party of the year. For the first time in over a decade, HeadsUp was not able to host this amazing community event and fundraiser last year due to COVID-19.

We are pleased to announce that Carnival will return Saturday, April 30, 2022 at a new venue!*
*subject to public health guidelines


HeadsUp Carnival helps raise over $80,000 to help HeadsUp bring critical enrichment and support programs to our schools, provide equitable opportunities for our students, and build community district-wide.

A huge thank you to ALL schools and hundreds of volunteers for sharing both time and talent. We look forward to working with you — parents, high school students, staff, music and art teachers, classroom teachers, principals, alumni, business partners — again next year to create another memorable day!


Special thanks to Bananas at Large for contributing ukeleles for last years biggest raffle ticket sellers!

For this year's biggest sellers, Bananas At Large will provide a lesson along with the ukelele!
