Register now for United Way’s 7th annual BBQ Battle

Registration of teams for the United Way of Nevada County’s seventh annual BBQ Battle is happening now! The barbecue teams will be competing for the title of “Best Griller in Nevada County.” There will be two judging categories, one decided by the populace, and the other will be decided by a small group of “critic’s choice” judges.

Think you have what it takes to compete against last year’s winners? Come share your talents; get an entry form from our website at and register your team today! Get creative like past teams “The She Devils” and “Bam Dazy BBQ.” It’s for a great cause! If you can’t compete, maybe you can help by sponsoring a team or the event. For information on sponsorship, go to our website or call the number below.

This year’s BBQ Battle will be at 5 p.m. Aug. 22 in downtown Grass Valley at the Gold Miners Inn (Holiday Inn Express).

All proceeds from this event will go into United Way of Nevada County’s Community Impact Fund to be shared among its 20 partner agencies. The impact fund is currently being allocated towards three specific areas: education, income and health. The United Way of Nevada County’s mission is to improve lives by directing community resources to community needs.

For information or to register your team, go to or call 530-274-8111.
