Groundhog Fest seeks vendors, chili contestants

Submitted by the Quincy Chamber of Commerce

In preparation for the Groundhog Fever Festival scheduled for Feb. 5, the Quincy Chamber of Commerce is seeking vendors, chili cook-off contestants, and volunteers. The eighth/ninth (does the video we did in lieu of a live event last year count?) annual event will take place at the Plumas County Courthouse at 520 Main St. in Quincy from 1  to 5 p.m.

In years’ past, the event drew a large crowd of festival goers wishing to shake off the winter blues. With live music, a chili cook-off, libations, entertainment, announcement of the Honorary Mayor of Quincy, mini-contests, and of course, the weather prediction of world-famous groundhog Chuck Wood, the event is sure to be good time and is always fun for the whole family!

Booths cost $25 for a 10-foot by 10-foot space, and free for nonprofits. The cost to enter the chili cook-off is $25. Winners of the Peoples’ Choice and Judge’s Choice awards will split the entry fees and receive a trophy and bragging rights. A special trophy for best decorated booth will also be handed out.
