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.

This great event opens officially at 11:00am for most activities (the Disc Golf Tournament starts at 9:30am). Entry to the event and parking are free. "BBQ Buck" and raffle ticket sales will start at 11:00am. BBQ Bucks are redeemable for BBQ tastings (both backyard and professional KCBS offerings) as well as drinks. Wine and beer will be available from 11:00am until 4:00pm. Sampling for the Backyard BBQ competition and people's choice voting starts at 12:00pm. Sampling of the professional BBQ team offerings starts at 1:00pm. Awards ceremonies and disc golf demonstrations happen throughout the afternoon with culmination of the event between 4:00pm and 4:30pm when the KCBS winners are announced.
