Produced by the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance, the Calaveras Grape Stomp, held in conjunction with the Gold Rush Street Faire, is a unique, fun-filled day for the whole family. Proceeds from the Calaveras Grape Stomp support local community groups. At the Grape Stomp, teams of two, a Swabber (sometimes called a Mucker) and a Stomper compete to try and stomp the most juice out of measured amounts of wine grapes. An experienced panel of experts precisely weighs the juice, and prizes are awarded to all the winners. There are special prizes for the top finishers in the Championship Stomp. Grape Stomp is a day long event (9:30-5:00) held in Murphys Community Park, Murphys, CA.
So make your plans now (for the 1st Saturday in October) to have some great food, award-winning wine, unique entertainment, and a massive Street Faire, all in the picturesque and historic Gold Rush town of Murphys, CA.
