Sunday October 8th   Chili 11am – 3pm, Car Show 9am – 3pm
Sponsored by: Save Mart Supermarkets
Hosted by: Sutter Creek Business & Professional Association
On Sunday, October 8th, Sutter Creek will be bursting at the seams with a day unbelievable fun! The 11th annual Great Sutter Creek Chili Cook-Off & Car Show returns again to bring Amador County together to sample chili & salsa, view over 100 classic cars, dance to live music and enjoy some libations too!

The Chili Cook-Off & Car Show started with humble beginnings in 2006 and has grown to be one of Amador’s favorite annual events.  The cook-off brings locals together and also draws people from as far away as the Bay Area, Nevada, and central California, who make an annual trek up to Sutter Creek just to partake in the fun.

Special Thanks goes out to Save Mart Supermarkets, who have been the sole sponsor since the beginning of the event. Their gigantic, 2 story shopping cart called “Big Red” has become an event tradition, with children and adults posing next to it to get their picture taken.

Early on Sunday morning, the crisp Fall air is taken over with the rumbling of engines, as the Hot Rods and Classic Cars start rolling into town and taking their places along Main Street. Over 100 beautiful and unusual vehicles will be there for your viewing pleasure, with the beautiful Gold Rush buildings as their backdrop. The Car Show starts at 9am and runs till 3pm and is completely free.
Then at 11am, get ready to sample some of the best Homemade Chili and Salsa! Lined up on the North end of town are shade tents of all sizes and shapes, filled with people dressed in crazy costumes, who have brewed up their own recipes to compete for your vote. Prizes are awarded for “Peoples Choice Best Chili – best Salsa –and best Booth”.  There is also the “Best Restaurant Chili” division where restaurants from all over the county compete against each other for your vote. Tickets to sample all this are available at the event and are only $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12.
Live music by “The Spotted Dog Band” will be at the North end of town. There you can dance the day away, enjoy a cold brew in the Beer Garden or visit the Wine Tent featuring local wines. There are lots of ways to make the most of this fabulous event!
