Calaveras Grape Stomp returns for 24th year of crushing good fun

The Calaveras Grape Stomp, held the first Saturday in October, features 70 teams that try to stomp as much juice out of 25 pounds of grapes as they can in 3 minutes.

The largest grape stomping event in the state is returning for its 24th edition, the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance said.

This year’s event will be held on Oct. 7, Shelby French, executive director of the winegrape alliance, said in a news release. The event has grown in participation during its time in Murphys. She said 70 teams attempt to win awards like “Champion of the Juice” or “Best Costume” acknowledgements.

The event, which also includes the Gold Rush Street Faire, draws 10,000 attendees annually for the seven-hour day.
