Come experience our Grape Stomp and Fall Festival held annually the second weekend after Labor Day. The three day festival is packed with excitement including 12 bands on 4 stages, over 150 food, juried art and marketplace vendors, a man cave featuring 22 Northmen Brewing Co. beer, wine tasting, and of course Grape Stomping!! Each day has a special theme with costume and grape stomping competitions. Drink tickets are used for all alcoholic beverages and once purchased, tickets are valid for any festival day. Sunday is "Deal Day" with specials on wine and merchandise throughout the festival. FREE Shuttles run from the Douglas County Fairgrounds and many Alexandria hotels, plus there’s plenty of on-site parking.
Exiting the parking lot on Saturday takes additional time, so if waiting is not your thing, we recommend: taking the shuttle on Saturday, attending on Friday or Sunday, or chilling until 7:00 and then head to your car.
NOTE: NO PETS OR COMPANION ANIMALS ALLOWED AT THE FESTIVAL
SUNDAY - VIKING GAME DAY IN THE BREWERY!!
All you can eat pizza, beer ticket & visit from the Viking Cheerleaders!
Tickets ($30) required. Limited seating. Get yours NOW!
During the three days of our festival, over 300 teams will stomp on 10,000 plus pounds of grapes. That’s a lot of purple feet! Teams are made up of two people – the “stomper” who is in the barrel and the “juicer” who stands below and guides the juice to the exit hole. Eight teams compete at a time. Winning teams are awarded the coveted “We Came, We Stomped, We WON" T-Shirts and advance to the Grand Championship round held at the end of each day. Grand Champions win a case of Vino D’Feet wine!
"Lucy Look-A-Like" Stomp: On Saturday ONLY we have two heats dedicated to you Lucys out there! Saturday at 3:45PM & 4:30PM come dressed in your best Lucy and compete for the stomp and for the Lucy Look-A-Like contest soon after. You must pre-register for this stomping heat if you would like to be in it. Limited to 8 teams. You can still come dressed as Lucy and participate in the look-a-like contest without being in the "Lucy Look-A-Like" stomp heats.
"Little Foot” Stomp: For those youngsters between the ages of 10-16, register for our FREE "Little Foot Stomp" on Sunday at 11:20!
