Sutter Creek Chili Cook-Off and Car Show
Sunday, September 8, 2013
The 7th Annual Great Sutter Creek Chili Cook-Off and Car Show is a classic small town event, with the perfect backdrop, the historic gold rush buildings of Sutter Creek.
Historic Main Street is closed off for the day when the cars and chili vendors take over. Almost 100 classic cars and hot rods fill one end of town, while chili teams fill the opposite end. Music fills the air, as people sample the homemade chili and salsa at each booth and then vote for their favorite.
The Great Sutter Creek Chili Cook off is always on the second Sunday of September and goes from 9am-4pm (cars) and 11am - 3pm (chili).
This event is FUN and FAMILY FRIENDLY!
New this year! Parking Lot Sale! After viewing all the wonderful cars and getting your fill of the best chili in Amador County, meander over to the Violich Parking Lot where you will find lots of vendors with antiques, collectibles, hand made arts and crafts and more.
