Be a Grills & Grilles Sponsor

Please consider being a sponsor...

We are excited to announce the 12th annual BBQ Competition & Car Show “Grills ‘n’ Grilles”! This has been a wonderful and fun event for the Nevada County community. A few years ago we introduced a sanctioned Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) competition to “spice up” our traditional Backyard BBQ event. The combination has been a great success! This year we expect even more BBQ teams and community members on Saturday, October 19th at beautiful Western Gateway Park! 

In addition to the BBQ competitions and Car Show, there will be the 5th Derek Sorensen memorial disc golf tournament, live music, vendors and a children’s area. Thanks to sponsors like you, every bit of money raised from this event will go back to the community to meet basic needs for food, access to health care and emergency shelter through United Way of Nevada County. 

We need your help to make this event successful. We encourage you to become a sponsor. Please click the button below to see the list of the multiple levels of sponsorship.  We will have a Sponsorship form here soon, for more information call 274-8111 or email

If you would prefer to donate an item to our event in place of being a monetary sponsor, please contact us. Visit our website to learn more about how United Way of Nevada County improves lives and the community partners we support.
