10th Anniversary Amado Chili Cook-Off

Randy & Rose Estes Classic Car & Motorcycle Show

Thank you to the Longhorn Grill and Saloon for providing the location for hosting the
Classic Car and Motorcycle Show

A Tradition Since 2010

The Amado Chili Cook-off Randy & Rose Estes Classic Car & Motorcycle Show is a popular regional event of the I-19 Corridor. Arizona families from Phoenix to Nogales have enjoyed the festivities of this fundraising effort that benefits The Amado Youth Center. With our attendance topping 1500, “The Cook-off” has become an established Amado community tradition that works to increase tourism and economic development in this region. We are proud to have the support of Pima County Community Prevention Coalition and PPEP, Inc. as the fiduciary agent.
This year — like many other community events — we are going virtual with our June 1st action-packed event that you’ll be able to watch from the comfort of your home as local chili cooks and car show entrants compete.
Thank you for your continued support of the Amado Youth Center Building Fund!
