United Way of Nevada County is proud to announce its 11th annual barbecue competition, which will include a Car & Motorcycle Show and a disc golf tournament. The event will take place on Aug. 26 at Western Gateway Park in Penn Valley.

Individuals who would like to display a car or motorcycle are encouraged to register as soon as possible, as space is limited. The event will also include a “Backyard BBQ Competition,” a “Kansas City BBQ Competition,” a disc golf tournament, vendors, music and a kid’s area.

Last year’s event included a broad spectrum of vehicles, ranging from electric cars to a 1928 Ford Model A. There will be an award given out for the “people’s choice” winner. Last year’s winner was a 1956 Chevy Nomad, owned by Jane Ammerman. United Way of Nevada County’s service priority is to strive to assure all individuals and families in Nevada County are able to meet their basic need for food, emergency shelter and access to health care. All the proceeds from this event will go to the United Way of Nevada County.

Car show registration forms are available at, or for more information please call United Way at 530-274-8111.
