The Snake Valley Days BBQ and Dance take place every year on the Saturday before Labor Day – This year it will be on September 1st. The BBQ begins at 4:00 PM at the Baker Ranches Cookhouse in Baker, Nevada and food is served for as long as people continue to arrive, usually a couple of hours. The cost of the BBQ is $12.00 for 16 and older; ages 6-15 can eat for $.00; the cost for seniors is $6.00; children 5 and under are free. All proceeds from the BBQ support the volunteer fire department. Later that evening, a dance is held at the Border Inn on Highway 6 & 50. Live music begins at 8:00 p.m. Part of the proceeds from the dance are donated to the volunteer fire department to support in whatever way the funds are needed.
