Calaveras Grape Stomp Celebrates 24th Anniversary October 7, 2017, Murphys Park, Murphys, CA 9:30 – 5:00

Murphys, CA...Interested in being part of the Calaveras Grape Stomp history? Call now 209/754-0127 or visit to register your team and celebrate one of the most anticipated events in the region, drawing large, loud crowds and scores of stomp teams, many festooned in original costume. If coming in costume, you must register in costume but you need not stomp in costume. Costumes are judged on originality, workmanship, etc. Registration entry fee is $70 per team of two. Besides partaking of the usual great food, wine, Raffle Tickets for either a New Zealand or Australia Wine Experince will be sold all day and a silent auction takes place throughout the day, with live auction on stage, Stomp goers witnessed another fierce competition between teams vying for the title of the Calaveras Grape Stomp Champion. Stomp Teams are composed of two persons, one inside a half barrel filled with 25 pounds of grapes, another outside the barrel reaching in to ensure a smooth flow of juice out the drain spot. It's a sticky business for all concerned. (A few photos & video from last year to get you in the mood)

The 2016 Top Teams from left to right: Grapeful Dead (Dale & Jennifer Marcum); Cork Fungus Fairies (Ricky Ingraham & Ursula Kline); Sushi & Waswabi (Craig Wright & Tamao Nakahara) Click Below For Over 100 Photos

The results are weighed and heat winners and wildcard teams advance to the championship rounds.

The Winery Stomp will be held at 11:00. This is your chance to see Wineries compete for the President's Trophy.

It's a great day for the family. At the same time the Calaveras Grape Stomp is on, the Gold Rush Street Faire is happening, with over 100 quality vendors of all sorts stretching from one end of Main Street to the other. Food, art, crafts, knick-knacks of every description – it will all be there.

Make plans now to visit Murphys this October 7 and be there for all the fun, excitement, food, wine, and a great silent auction this year.

Do you remember the day when Arnold was the hot spot for all the tourist to come up and visit and spend money on the great outdoors? We stole them with a great weekend revolving around drinking and now they spend their time and money here in Murphys. Without them we would not become what we are today. As for Arnold, losing the tourist did take a toll on it's community but Arnold looks like it's recovering after all these years.
Of course during and after the event we probably had a high number of drunk drivers, but as long as no one was caught it's a win win for everyone.
If we don't ban commercial Medical Marijuana Cultivation, maybe we could have a Great Bud Parade or something similar in the near future. Instead of having a bunch of drunks and drunk drivers on our streets we'll have a bunch of stoners here. Imagine downtown packed with growers, stoners and likewise. It would smell like someone drove over a family of skunks in front of your home. But hey! It would bring even more tourist and money here.

    Instead of grape crushing, they could do trimming events!! Imagine how the food concessions would do with all of those munchies being felt. And maybe there would be a black person or two. You know, playing raggae and sporting dreadlocks. Now its a bunch of white middle class Neo Nazi sympathizers.

        even better is foot sex, where the pretty girls masturbate your dick with their soft sexy feet and you shoot your sperm out onto their toes, making them sticky...

        I'd post a picture of it here but the admin has disabled my ability to do that. video is even better! especially when the semen ejaculates into the air. it's pretty hot!

      To be honest with you, I was nursing a beer at the Historic Hotel in Murphys the other day and saw a few white scruffy people supporting dreadlocks. I guess it must be something about not bathing and dreadlocks going hand and hand? I'm not sure, it's just a guess. Thankfully they didn't pass to close so I didn't get a whiff of them, I have enough problems with skunks on my property as it is.
