Please join us for our fourth annual Grape Stomp and Harvest Festival! We will have a grape stomp competition, Wear Your Whites contest (bridal gowns and white suites,etc), and an I Love Lucy Look-a-Like judging. The afternoon will be filled with entertainment and crazy fun! We expect this event to sell out…so don’t wait to buy your tickets, or you may end up squeaky clean and disappointed.
Proceeds from the event go to support the growth of Salado Montessori, a non-profit Primary for kiddos ages 3-6. Salado Montessori aims to inspire a love of learning in each child and follow the child’s interests throughout their pre-school years.
We’ll be serving our locally made wines by the glass and bottle. (food options will be updated here)
There is no admission fee to attend. Our pre-sale ticket packages ensure you will reserve your souvenir t-shirt.
Our grape stomp will be the ideal opportunity to make your Instagram followers super jealous. Teams of two will compete every 15 minutes in rounds of 4-5 teams. During your team’s turn, one person will stomp for two minutes and then the second person will stomp for two minutes. The team of two who produces the most juice wins bragging rights!
Pay attention, every year the packages are a little different. We are now offering our Dionysus Package, which gains you the right to pose in the giant vat of crushed grapes and then make your own wine-footprint t-shirts. If you want to to compete, the Smash Those Grapes Package is the one for you!
We welcome Terra Living this year who will be offering a special kiddo activity.
“Would your business benefit from being an event sponsor? Let us know!”
Tickets are refundable up to 7 days before the event. After that, you may transfer your ticket to a friend – make sure you email the ticket to your friend. The show will go on even if it rains, snows, sleets or whatever the great state of Texas comes up with for weather. This event will be outdoors and everything will be under a tent.
Kids are welcome and #Winerycat insists that dogs must be on a leash.
NO outside alcohol may be brought in. That means you cannot bring beer, wine, distilled spirits or moonshine. Please no sneaking in alcohol…this is not your high school prom, thank you!
Grape Stomp Rules
Fans of all ages are welcomed to the harvest festival.
Stomping will commence when the Stomp Master blows the whistle and all teams must stop stomping and collecting at the closing whistle. Any team who starts early or delays stopping will receive a penalty.
All stomping must be done with bare feet.
Stompers may hold on to their team member for support.
Only juice will be measured. Any grapes and pulp will be strained out by the judges.
In the event of a tie, the officials will choose the team who displayed the least abandon.
Any team not participating in a manner consistent with fair play and good sportsmanship is subject to disqualification without refund. If you break something, you’ve bought it.
Your slot will be during the hour you sign up for. You must be on time. If you are not present when your team is called, then you forfeit your team’s grape stompin’ tickets.
All participants must sign Liability Waiver.
