If you enjoy local celebrations, this is annual event that should not be missed. In observation of Nevada Day, the Chateau in Incline Village hosts the annual Battle Born BeerFest and Chili Cook-Off. An important legal holiday that is celebrated on the last Friday in October, Nevada Day honors the day that Nevada was officially admitted to the Union. The actual day was October 31, 1864, during the Civil War and is connected with Nevada's official state slogan and nickname, Battle Born. The annual Battle Born BeerFest and Chili Cook-Off is a fundraiser held by the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline and it creates a fun and tasty way to celebrate our local heritage. Local restaurants show off their top chili recipes and compete for the People's Choice Award. Local and regional craft breweries pair their best brews with the chili offerings. Participants are encouraged to dress in Western attire, and there is always a great showing of country Western music and line dancing. Beyond dancing, drink and food, there is a raffle with incredible items, including the opportunity to win a Diamond Peak season pass. Tickets cost $50 in advance or $60 the day of. Proceeds assist local education and youth groups such as the Boy Scouts.
