MANHATTAN, Kan. – Take off your shoes and feel the grapes between your toes. The Kansas Department of Agriculture will host the 10th annual Kansas Grape Stomp Saturday, September 12, at 3:00 p.m. on the Lake Talbott Stage at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, Kansas.
Gather around the grape tubs to watch State Fair Board members, State FFA Officers, College Student Body Presidents, Ag Educators and 4-H Council leaders stomp grapes to celebrate the Kansas grape and wine industries. A competitive stomp-off will kick off the event and an open stomp for all State Fair attendees will follow.
Advocating for and promoting the agriculture industry, the state’s largest industry, employer and economic contributor, KDA encourages all to attend the grape stomp to learn about the grape and wine industry in Kansas while having fun.
