If you’ll be staying in a hotel in Sutter Creek with affordable rates, be sure to mark this event in your calendars so you don’t forget!

For the annual Sutter Creek Chili Cook-Off and Car Show, Historic Main street will be closed for the day so that cars and chili vendors can set up camp. At this event, there will be almost 100 classic cars and hot rods lining the road for you spectators to enjoy. Cars will be on one end, with chili on the end. As you walk around, there will also be live entertainment and music. There will be various prizes given out at this event. Some of these include Best Restaurant, Best Salsa, Best Decorated Booth, People’s Choice for best salsa and chili, and best costume.

The cars will be available to look at from 9am – 3pm and the chili and salsa tasting will be from 11am – 3pm. If you simply want to check out the cars, it is free to walk around and look. However, if you want to taste some of the delicious chili and salsa that will be available at this event, then a small admission fee of $6 must be given upon entry. Admission for children is only $4. With your fee you will be given a wristband, cup, spoon, napkin and ballot to vote for your favorite chili and salsa! Your wristband allows for unlimited tasting so enjoy it while it lasts! If you love chili and classic cars, don’t forget to bring your whole family down to this family friendly event!
