One of the most entertaining street faire/festivals held in our area is coming next weekend, and it’s celebrating it’s 20th anniversary, so it’s sure to be a fun time for all – it’s the Calaveras Grape Stomp! Attendees are encouraged to join in the fun by climbing into wine barrels in pairs, a Mucker (or Swabber) and a Stomper, to squash the most juice out of their portion of grapes. Most of the participants come in costume, so if you want to join in, make sure to show your team spirit! The big winners at the end of the day collect special prizes for their efforts. There are also auctions held, both silent and call, that offer terrific deals on wine, ski, beauty, and dining packages throughout Calaveras County. A huge draw for the crowds besides the grape stomping activities held in Murphys beautiful community park is the Street Faire. Main Street is closed off to vehicle traffic and booths line both sides of the street, offering everything from culinary treats to jewelry to artwork to clothing to (of course) wine!
