Grand Sierra Beer and Chili Festival

October 19 - October 20

The Hottest Event of 2019!

What happens when tasty cold beers and awesome live music meet spicy hot bowls of chili? That’s right, party time! This October it’s time to don the comfy pants, grab your best buds, cram yourselves into a ride-share and head on over to the Grand Sierra Beer & Chili Festival. Entry is FREE and gates open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Savor beer tastings from over two dozen local, regional and national craft beer favorites. In between sips, slurp your way through delicious chili samples and other menu specialties from local restaurants – then vote for your favorite chili to take home the People’s Choice prize!

When your taste buds need a break from all that beer and chili, explore market stalls featuring quality goods from over 75 craft vendors, or jiggle on over to the concert stage and dance along to live bands.
