As a part of the Tahoe City 150 Celebrations we will be kicking off a new Tahoe City event.  The Inaugural Tahoe City Grill Fest comes to the Marina / Boatworks on Saturday, October 12 from 12 – 4pm,  with food, fun, music and more.   Local BBQ experts will bring their best to a friendly throwdown with rival chefs for awards in several categories, but more importantly for coveted bragging rights.

BBQ competitors will include Big Blue Q, Dockside 700, Hacienda, Jakes On The Lake, and Men Wielding Fire.    They will compete in categories including Best Ribs, Best Chicken, Best Tri-Tip and  “Open” (anything goes…. even vegetarian entries!).

Celebrity judges will bring their discerning taste to the event, but attendees will make the final call by voting with tokens for their food favorites.

Of course cold brews will be available to wash down the great barbeque, thanks to beer sponsors Coors, Blue Moon, and Fat Tire.   Barefoot brand wine will be available for those who prefer vino to beer and soft drinks as well.

Live music will be coming from Sacramento favorites Mental Floss.  $10 entry fee will include first beverage, voting token, great music and more.

The Tahoe City Grill Fest is partnering with the Tahoe City Urban Iditarod, which will be a wacky good time as costumed teams mush their shopping carts through Tahoe City and finish up at the Grill Fest.

Don’t miss these inaugural events and new annual traditions!
