CHARLESTON, SC (ADAM BRADLEY, WTAT-TV) — This weekend it’s time to unwind with an event you won’t find any other time of the year – it’s the 2018 Grape Stomp festival with our friends at Deep Water Vineyard! This massive celebration happens this Saturday, August 18th from 10 in the morning to 5 in the evening with way too much going on to list it all here, but I will give it a try.

Food trucks – tons of them handpicked from your favorites from the weekly Weekend Wine Down events including but not limited to The Immortal Lobster, Rebel Taqueria, Coastal Crust Pizza and Home Team Barbecue.

Live music – Dallas Baker and Friends and Bootless playing multiple sets all day

Beverages – including tastings from Deep Water Vineyards and Firefly Distillery plus mixed drinks, wine-a-ritas and beer from Low Tide Brewing.

Vendors – lots of them. Entirely too many to even begin to scratch the surface…

Contests – grape stomping contests abound with multiple adult stomps and a kid stomp, plus a Lucy look-alike contest.

Well-behaved dogs are allowed, as are well-behaved children and well-behaved adults – coolers are NOT.

Get your tickets now through for only $10 PER CAR in advance, $20 day of, so fire up the microbus and pack it full. The 2018 Grape Stomp Festival this Saturday from 10-5 – don’t miss it.

I’m Adam Bradley and that will do it for this week’s Weekend Wine Down!
