Manhattan, Kan. – To celebrate the Kansas grape and wine industries, the Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) will host the ninth annual Kansas Grape Stomp Saturday, September 6, at 3:00 p.m. on the Lake Talbott Stage at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, Kansas.
Public officials, agricultural and economic leaders and other dignitaries have been stomping grapes at the Kansas State Fair since 2004. After a competitive stomp-off by 2014 participants, Kansas State Fair attendees are welcome to join in for an open stomp. Kansans young and old who plan to be at the fair on September 6 are encouraged to stop by to try their hand in grape stomping and learn more about growing grapes in Kansas.
