Harvest Fest & Grape Stomp

Four years ago Scott and Jenny Ellenbecker hosted their first “Grape Stomp” at Round Lake Vineyard and Winery to celebrate the beginning of the grape harvest season for the family-owned and operated business.

Now in its 4th year, the annual Grape Stomp has grown by participation to include over 40 teams vying to be the best stompers or winners of the best costume contest. During the stomp, teams of two, many with creative names and costumes, compete to collect the most juice out of 20 pounds of grapes in 3 minute heats. Teams consist of a “stomper,” who stands in half a wine barrel with the grapes, and a “swabber, or mucker” who stands outside the barrel and reaches in to help flow the juice out of a drain spout.
Teams are encouraged to appear in costume and prizes are awarded based on originality, design and effort. Competitions are highly encouraged between businesses, organizations and friends and pre-registration is strongly recommended as stomp competitions sell out well before the event.

Crowds of over 1,000 people from near and far flood the vineyard near the little town of Round Lake with a population of only 376 for this exciting all day event that includes an artisan and vendor fair within the vineyard’s property with over 40 outside vendors. Quality arts and crafts, antiques, handcrafted goods, jewelry, clothing, and collectibles offer wares for sale.

Headliner HickTown Mafia, with a foot stomping, hand clapping, high energy stage show that invites and encourages the audience to join in with their signature shout outs and sing alongs, will perform from 3-7 p.m.

Attending the 4th Annual Harvest Festival and Grape Stomp Competition is a $5 entry to the public over 15 years old and the event runs from 11am – 7pm on Saturday, September 8.
