United Way of Nevada County’s 12th annual BBQ Competition and Car Show “Grills ‘n’ Grilles” is one big event of food, autos, live music, and fun. The event will take place on October 13th, 2018 at Western Gateway Park in Penn Valley, just minutes from the historic gold towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City nestled in the Sierra foothills. This is an exciting event for the entire community and runs in conjunction with the third Annual Derek Sorensen Memorial Disc Golf Tournament.

      • KCBS BBQ Teams will compete in four meat categories: chicken, pork ribs, pork roast and beef brisket.
      • Backyard BBQ Teams will compete for a People’s Choice and Critic’s Choice award.
      • Cars of all makes and models will be on display for viewing.
      • A Gold Country Disc Golf Association Derek Sorensen Memorial Tournament will be played before the event.
      • Community members will have the chance to come out and try some great barbecue, vote for the top griller and their favorite vehicle.
      • There will be disc golf exhibitions, vendors, music, food, beer and wine, and a kid’s area . . . fun for the whole community.

Come out and enjoy some great food while listening to music in the beautiful Western Gateway Park. There will be vendors, wine and beer, raffles and a children’s area. The proceeds go to United Way of Nevada County’s Community Impact Fund. If you would like to register a BBQ team or a vehicle for competition, be a sponsor or vendor contact 274-8111 or admin@uwnc.org.
