MARAGAS WINERY 6TH ANNUAL GRAPE STOMP
11:00 am – 6:00 pm
* Live music all day – First up at opening, country blues sensation Wayne Worthen. Followed by the Allen Byer Project – This trio includes some banjo playing that will get you revved up while you’re stomping.
* Feel like making some great juice, destined to be medal winning wine (every year, Tootsie, the wine we’ve made with stomped grapes, has medaled in the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition!), we’ll have picking bins loaded with luscious grapes ready for your svelte toes to stomp!
$20 with the Romp and a logo glass.
Or, $10 admission without the Romp and glass.
And, kids get in free (they must be accompanied by an adult).
*Advance Purchase Discount: Up to five days preceding the event, you’ll receive 10% off of the admission price. Tickets are available online (Click Here), by calling 541-546-5464, by visiting our Winery, and at the door on the day of the event.
This will be an adult competition showing off what makes you a magnificent stomper.
Inside a barrel, you’ll be stomping grapes to extract as much juice as possible from those fine berries.
Run as a tournament, this will be $5 per person for entry. The idea is to stomp out more juice than your competitors.
Once again, we’ll be donating proceeds of the Stomp contest to a local nonprofit educational institution. This year, they’ll go to St. Thomas Academy.

FROM THE VAULT: EDWARD S. CURTIS’S THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN
High Desert Museum
COST: Adults $15, Ages 65 Plus $12, Ages 5-12 $9, Ages 4 and younger free
Edward S. Curtis spent 30 years beginning in the late 1800s creating a photo-ethnographic study of the North American Indian that was widely considered the finest collection of limited edition books ever made in the US. The High Desert Museum is proud to hold in its collection a complete set of the 20 bound volumes of The North American Indian. These rare volumes will be displayed along with prints that depict tribes from the High Desert region. This is the inaugural exhibition for the new series, From the Vault, where we unveil rarely-displayed materials from the collection.
