PREASE RELEASE: Cocky’s Funeral set for Nov. 19


CLEMSON, S.C.—Get ready to be a part of the excitement as it’s time for the 120th anniversary of Cocky’s Funeral! Since 1902, Cocky’s Funeral is an infamous tradition that’s been held for over 100 years by the Student Alumni Association. Join us at the Outdoor Amphitheater on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. for the annual burning of the chicken. A heartfelt eulogy will be read along with performances from organizations such as the Clemson Rally Cats.

Come out and enjoy FREE chicken sandwiches, hot chocolate, cookies and, of course, the beautiful burning of the chicken.

We look forward to enjoying this longstanding tradition together as a student body before we take on the Gamecocks on Nov. 25.

Purchase your Cocky’s Funeral T-shirt at the event. Sizes S-XXL.
