2018 Grills 'n' Grilles

United Way of Nevada County has decided to hold our annual BBQ/Car Show event a bit later in the year to avoid the heat. It will be held October 13th at Western Gateway Park. Again, we will have Kansas City Barbecue teams coming from all over California to compete in the national competition, as well as our local Backyard BBQ-ers competing for prizes. Also during this fun event will be a Car Show, the 4th Derek Sorensen Memorial Disc Golf Tournament, live music, beer and wine, vendors and lots of fun for the entire family. We are currently looking for sponsors for this great event. Call (530) 274-8111 or email admin@uwnc.org for more information. Check out our new website: http://grillsngrilles.org/
