Grape Stomp Festival at St. Croix Vineyards

The weekend after Labor Day is Saint Croix Vineyards annual Grape Stomp. In the past, I was not aware this is free and open to the whole family. Not only do I think this could be fun to do as a family, it could be an opportunity to introduce my kids to Lucy. I have to admit though, the thought of my kids feet stomping grapes to be turned into wine kind of makes me ill.  However, whether or not we actually stomp the grapes, the idea of a picnic and vineyard tour along with live music sounds like a really pleasant weekend afternoon.

Competitions for both kids and adults will be held three times a day and prizes will be awarded to those with the best grape-stomping style (as determined by audience applause)

Time: Saturday, September 12th and Sunday, September 13th; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Location: St. Croix Vineyard, 6428 Manning Ave N, Stillwater, MN 55082
  • Tours: 12:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m.
  • Music: 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
  • Wine sampling: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Grape Stomp Competitions 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., and 5:00 pm

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
