The Gutierrez Spanish Tent Show, or Gutierrez Show Compañía Mexicana de Autómatas y Variedades, was a traveling tent show that came regularly at least during the 1930s and 1940s to the Barrio Logan section of San Diego. Some years shows were also given in Old Town, San Diego. The show included theatrical performances, puppet shows, mimes, impressionists, a wire act, juggling, tumbling, a rope act and a clown act, all for Spanish audiences.
