Grand Sierra Beer & Chili Festival

October 19 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT


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 rideshare and head on over to the Grand Sierra Beer & Chili Festival. Entry is FREE and gates open from 1pm to 5pm (early entry available at 12pm). Just bring some cash for your chili, beer and other cool stuff. Visit one of more than a dozen featured local restaurants to sample their chili, and vote for your favorite! Get passes for unlimited beer tasting packages now and save. (Mo’ money, mo’ chili!) Beat the rush and grab early entry. Stroll in one full hour before the general public. Classy.

General Festival Admission is FREE. Daily tasting packages available for purchase for unlimited beer tastings. Individual chili tastings are available for purchase for $3 or $5 at participating restaurants.
